Hi Jessee,

Name, Race, Sex, Age, Occupation
James Light, w, m, 28 (farmer)
Elizabeth L., w, f, 27 (housekeeper)
Samuel N., w, m, 10
Martin L., w, m, 8
Sarah E., w, f, 6
Elimerah, w, f, 4,
Mary Ellen, w, f, 1
???? Ellis, b, m, 55 (cook)
Sarah M., b, f, 11 (nurse)
Thomas Light, w, m, 55 (day laborer)

Hope this answered your question or was I too late. Samuel P. Light, s/o Thomas and James's brother, is my g-grandfather. Sam married Mary Ellen Ragland (Raglin?). Also, I can tell you where Sam and James are buried; but, have yet to find Thomas's grave.

See ya,
Ron Brown
