I am trying to find the identity of the parents of my paternal great great great grandfather, John Wightman, b. 1777 died 1819. John Wightman and his wife, Ruth Anna Merrihew, had these children: Elizabeth, Mary, George, John, Hannah Semantha, Casey and Peter (my great great grandfather-he was born after his father died.) I see that i a generation before the son of Thomas Wightman was John Wightman and he married Sarah CAsey in 1778. This couple had at least these children: George, Edward, Mary and Thomas. I wonder if my ancestor might fit in this family. if anyone can help me prove or disprove my theory I would appreciate the help she/he could give me. Geof Acker
