Although this is not my Light family, I have found information on the Light line you are seeking. Samuel Thomas Light's parents were William Peter & Nettie (Reed) Light. William's parents were Thomas & Susan M. (Short) Light. Thomas Light's parents were Samuel and Hannah (Thornburg) Light. Samuel's parents were Peter & Nancy Light. Peter's parents were Jacob & Barbara Lichte/Light.
This Light family originated in Palatinate, Germany. They immigrated to the United States circa 1730, settling in Little Conestoga Creek, Caernarvon Township, (Lancaster Co., PA).
Peter removed to Bedington, Berkeley, (West) Virginia.
Samuel left Virginia, settling in Mercer Co., Kentucky, and died near Danville, Boyle, Kentucky.
Thomas settled in Washington Co., Kentucky.
Samuel Thomas was born in Kings Mountain, Lincoln, Kentucky, and removed to Texas. He died in Gunter and his wife, Hannah, died in Collinsville.
I have a gedcom file I accumulated on this family while looking for MY Light roots who I have been able to trace back to Washington Co., KY. I will be glad to send it to you if you would like.
