In Reply to: Edward Light/Amanda Etter of the OH/PA area by Benjamin Light of 2090

I nearly fainted when I read your post!!!!I have been trying for years to find a connection to my great grandfather Edwin Light of Penn and Ohio. Edwin Light and Amanda Etter had Emma, Edwin E.(my grandfather) Andrew, Clement and George. All children were born in Pa and George in Ohio. Edwin E.(my grandfather) married Ella Mae Cisney of the McCurdy/Cisneys in 1896. They had Lettie Marie, Florence, Roscoe Bernard (my father)born in 1902, Cora Mabel, and Laura Pauline (b.1913)They lived in Cass Township, Richland County Ohio in 1900, and Blooming Grove Twp. in 1910. When my father Roscoe was 17, they lived in Greenwich, Huron county, Ohio. After that I have never heard anything about them. My father never talked about his father and grandfather, so we have no knowledge of them, other than what I have told you. My grandfather was born in Penn. in 1869. We did "hear" that our Grandfather Edwin E. supposedly ran off to the west (we heard Kansas) with another woman leaving my father and his mother and siblings in Ashland, Ohio where I was born 1n 1941. Great Grandfather and Grandfather info could be getting mixed up. What you have told me is very ironic. My parents lived in Ashland, Ohio where I was born and still live. My father was very proud when my older brother in the 1960's became a deputy sheriff in Ashland. And now my son is a Sergeant with the Ashland County Sheriffs office. I guess what goes round, comes round. I never knew of my great grandfather being the Ashland town Marshall. Please e-mail me with any and all info and I will do the same. Thanks so much, Esther (Light) Kitts
