Hello Ed,

Sorry, but I must have overlooked your message before. Glad to help if I can. From the 1900 Greene Co. TN census is Noah Light age 26 (b) June 1873. His wife, Mary J. age 20 (b) Oct. 1879. Noah states he has been married for 4 years, so that would put their marriage around 1896. Mary J. states they have one child. The child listed is Rebecca J. age 2 (b) July 1897. Noah's mother, Polly (which was probably a nick-name for Mary) was living with them. She was listed as 59 and (b) Jan. 1841. She states she is a widow. Don't have my 1910 census handy, but from the 1920 Greene Co. TN census is: Noah Light age 51, Mary J. age 37, Thomas J. age 17, Julie age 11, James R. age 9, Roberta age 6, and Elis age 8 yrs. and 2 mo. I can't say for certain yet, which family Polly comes from. If you would like to Email me, we can work on this. I might be able find the right one with a little more information. Hope this helps.
