This is where the research takes a turn. You have to research the Lights along with the Morelocks to figure these families out for they have very close ties even before this and name their children after each other.

In a court suite in Hawkins Co., the names of the children of Jacob Light and Pasha Morelock are listed.

If I remember corectly, the date is 1874 and it is titled, Yancy Morelock vs. Judy Hawkins. (Judy Morelock Hawkins) It involves some land from William Morelock, their father. It might also be listed as Yancy Morelock vs. John Hawkins. I don't have that in front of me right now.

Pasha died after her last child, Juda (aka, Julia) was born. They had William, Wright and Juda (lJulia).

Jonathan may or may not have been their son. He is not listed as such in these court suites and there are many pages of them at two different dates.

These familes are from the line of Joshua (son of Wm. and Patience Dillingham Light) and George Morelock and wife, Elizabeth Bachman Morelock. Not easy to research one without the other.

Do you live in the area?
