I tried a search, but had no luck.

Using my methods:

< https://www.familysearch.org >

I find:

"United States Census, 1920," Ralph Light in household of
Brownlow Light, , Floyd, Virginia

Name: Ralph Light
Residence: , Floyd, Virginia
Estimated Birth Year: 1912
Age: 8
Birthplace: Virginia
Relationship to Head of Household: Son
Gender: Male
Race: White
Marital Status: Single
Father's Birthplace: Virginia
Mother's Birthplace: Virginia
Film Number: 1821887
Digital Folder Number: 4392019
Image Number: 00544
Sheet Number: 1
Household Gender Age Birthplace
SELF Brownlow Light M 58y Virginia
WIFE Della Light F 43y Virginia
DAU Evelin Light F 16y Virginia
SON Harris H Light M 15y Virginia
SON Juhan Light M 10y Virginia
SON Ralph Light M 8y Virginia
SON Binford Light M 4y Virginia


Then:

< http://tntel.tnsos.org/ >

click the genealogy link brings up:

'ProQuest’s HeritageQuest Online'

Click it to get to the Census to find folks.

I tried to find Brownlow, in Floyd, VA

1930 > VIRGINIA > FLOYD > LOCUST GROVE
DIST (WEST PART)
Series: T626 Roll: 2441 Page: 270

LIGHT BROWNLOW 68 M W VA VA FLOYD
LOCUST GROVE DIST (WEST PART) 1930

Ralph is not there, so he must be married - or elsewhere.
One can browse backward or forward to search.

All of the state of Virginia is not yet 'loaded', so it
might pay to browse. I only found one in Texas, but he's
about 10 years older than your Ralph.
