I got the following information from the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. They are a wonderful source of information (

Andrew LIGHT
B. 27 Jan 1786 Waldoboro, Maine
D. 7 Jun 1871 prob Edgecomb, Lincoln Co, Maine
M. 7 May 1807

Abigail LEEMAN
B. 1784 Edgecomb, Lincoln, Maine
D. 1858 Edgecomb, Lincoln, Maine

Andrews Father was Johann Georg LEICHT
B. Abt 1742 in Germany
D. Oct 1786 Waldoborough, Maine

His Father was also Johann Georg LEICHT
B. Abt 1710 in Germany
D. 1766 Waldoborough, Maine

Abigail's Father was Daniel LEEMAN
B. 9 Jun 1755 Edgecomb, Maine
D. Abt 4 Jul 1812 Edgecomb, Maine
M. 17 Jun 1780

Her Mother was Martha GRAY
B. 15 Oct 1756 Pownelborough, Maine
D. 1854 Wiscosset, Maine

Hope that helps.
I believe that Jason Light and Mary Dodge's daughter Mary Elizabeth Light married a Winthrop Dodge and their son Herbert E. Dodge was my great grandfather. Unfortunately none of my grandparents are living and I have not been able to verify this. I have no information on Winthrop Dodge's ancestry. Also, if you have any information on the other offspring of Jason Light and Mary Dodge or any Dodge family from Maine, particularly Edgecomb or Newcastle, I would really appreciate it if you could pass it along.
