Timothy Light married Susan Amanda Dykes, Jan. 12, 1851in Crawford, Mo. She was the dau. of William Dykes Jr. and Jane Gallimore.
Timothy Light's wife was Louisa H. Israel. He was b, in Hawkins Co. Tn and died Sept. 1927 in Arkansas. Not sure who his parents were. He is listed in the Dykes family history. My Light-Dykes line starts with Jacob Light. b. in the late 1700s. He had a son named Michael Light, b. 1812. Michael Light was married twice, the second time to Eliza Dykes, b. abt 1818. My relationship is through two of Michael Light and Eliza Dykes daughters. My grandfather, Thomas Jim Rosier first married Lucinda Light, and had children by her. She died and he then married Amie Light and had children by her. I have all of the data on them.

Your Timothy Light fits in someplace in this family. I will have to dig out all of my data on the Dykes family to see if it tells who Timothy's father was.

Amie Light was my grandmother. I have a photo of her and Thomas Jim Rosier. Following her death he came to Texas and died in Monaville, Tx. There are Rosier descendants in and around Normangee, Tx.
Hope this helps.
