I hope this isn't a repeat. I just posted a message and it does't seem to be there. Anyway, great to hear from you again. Circumstances have prevented me from doing any more research on my family until now. I wanted to let you know that I had a Lightner family bible from 1770, but it had very little family info. in it - just an illegible entry that said "daughter of (illegible name) 1749". Do you have any 1749 entries in your Lightner records for birth or death? Also "Esther Lightner born 1814" and Jacob Gruber Rusk born 5/28/1874" entries by my gr grandmother or grandmother (I'll have to check the handwriting), so this is not set in stone. What is set in stone are the dates I got off the gravestone at Louden Park: "Esther Gruber wife of Jacob Gruber, Dec. 15, 1804, Jan. 4, 1886" "Jacob Gruber, Feb. 4, 1805, Feb. 15, 1882" "Jacob Gruber 1756-1846" "Anna Maria Gruber, 1762-1841". I don't know who the last two were. For that matter, I still have'nt figured out the exact connections of the Grubers or Lightners to myself. You probably already know these gravestones at Louden: "Ann E. Lightner, beloved wife of Henry Lightner, died Sept. 27, 1883" "Henry Lightner, b. July 4, 1818, d Dec. 1, 1900" "John M. Lightner, 1760-1826 and Anna M. Lightner 1762-1857" The last two and carved on the side of the stone for Jacob Gruber Rusk in the Rusk family plots.
