Now I do not have much information on Wesely Light
Wesley Light born abt. 1829 in Indiana died 11 March 1869.
He married a lady with the first name of Hannah. I have record of two children Alice Light born 1857 and Robert W. Light born 1859.

Now for Robert Light
Robert Light was born 1809 or 1810 in Kenntucky and died 20 Feb 1844 in Clay Co. Indiana. He is the son of Tyce Mathias Light and Mary Catherine Moore. Robert married Frances McTach by 1829. Frances was born about 1805 in Kenntucky and died 12 Sept 1864
They had nine children that I know of:
Benjamin Light died at birth
Wesely Light 1829-1869 M: Hannah
William Light 1832 M: Elizabeth Buskirk
George J. Light 1834-1910 M: Edna Ann Lemly
Jacob John Light 1835

Marion Light 1839-1863 M: Elizabeth M. Anderson
Isrial Light 1842-1844

Hope this information is helpful. I do have some inforamtion of Roberts side of the family however I have not found anything on Frances McTash's side.
