Who were the parents and siblings of John B. Light born 12 Oct 1820 New York who married Orpha Pinckney (1822-1888) and lived in the Bedford area of Westchester County, NY? He may have been the son of Henry and Margaret (Colegrove) Light but I have not found documentation on this lead. Who were the siblings of John B. Light? Did he have a sister Mary E. (b. ca1823 NY) who married Joshua Hallett and was the household/family listed after John B. Light in the 1850 Bedford, Westchester County, NY census?

John B. and Orpha Light had at least the following children that reached adulthood:
Warren W. Light b. ca1846 and married Ada Williams.
Margaret Light b. 1849 d. 1870.
William J. Light b.1850 married Mary Emma Thorns.
Aaron Light b.1853 and married Sarah Bowne abt 1878, had issue and d. after April 1930.
Stillman Stephen Light born 1859 married first Anna Elizabeth in 1886, they had issue and she died in 1913. Stillman married second to Fannie Gardner in 1875.

Any help or leads for information on the parents and siblings of John B. Light is much appreciated. Thank you.
