In Reply to: Re: LEICHTY's of OHIO by Sharon Leichty of 350

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.
