John Jackson Lightner
Posted by: Sandra Cowan (ID *****0325) Date: April 08, 2013 at 05:17:42

I always thought that William Lightner and Isabella Stewart were the parents of John Jackson Lightner (my great grandfather). After reading Isabella's obituary, that maybe not be correct. I do know he was married to Catherine Coble as I have a copy of their son's death certificate. Census records show he and Catherine lived in Perry,Dauphin and York County. He was buried in York County.

Can anyone help determine John Jackson's parents?

The dates

John Jackson Lightner
born 1835 Perry County
died 1893 buried in York County

His parents - these are in question now

William Lightner
born 1808 Tyrone Cumberland County
died 1884 Tyrone, Perry County
Isabella Stewart
born 1810 Perry County
died 1895 Perry County

William's parents

Henry Lightner
born 1778 Cumberland County, Pennsylvania
Died 1858 in Perry County, Pennsylvania

Mary Powers
Born Pennsylvania
Died Perry County, Pennsylvania
