I am a descendant of a LIGHT family of Cabarrus County, NC and later Union County, IL.
The earliest ancestor I know of is Christopher LIGHT and his wife Phillipine EIGENER. Their son John LIGHT was born about 1793 in Cararrus County, NC. He married Leah MEISENHEIMER and they moved to Union County, IL. Their daughter Mary Ann LIGHT was born 1822 in Union County, IL and married Caleb Miller.
I would be interested in exchanging info with others of this line
