I'm wondering if perhaps the LEIGHTY family of Kosciusko Co, IN is related to your Leichtys from Wayne Co, OH. A couple of the KIMES children married LEIGHTYs, and the Peter KIMES Family was living in Wayne Co, OH before they moved to Kosciusko Co, IN ca 1838.
On the 1840 census, we a John Leichty living in Kosciusko Co, IN, along with his wife and six children. On the 1850 census, we find one LEIGHTY family in the county - the father is not listed. I don't know that John was the father/husband, but it's looks like a possibility.
In 1850, the family includes:
Catharine LEIGHTY, b: ca 1803 PA
Samuel LEIGHTY b: 1826 OH
Jacob LEIGHTY b: 1831 OH
Mary LEIGHTY b: 1833 OH
John LEIGHTY b: 1836 OH
Delilah LEIGHTY b: 1839 IN
Elizabeth LEIGHTY b: 1842 IN
From birthdates, one can see the family moved from Ohio about the same time the KIMESes did.
NOTE: I'm not researching the LEIGHTYs, merely posting this info to help others.
