The Early Lighthill Family

 

HISTORY OF LIGHTHILL FAMILY

 

By Burr Lighthill

 

George and Jemima (Hendricks) Lighthill lived in Beaver Creek County, Pa., in 1837.  They moved to Richland County, Ohio, where they were engaged in farming.  In 1852, the family-parents, 5 daughters and 3 sons moved to Paulding County, Ohio.  The sons names are as follows, Robert H., Spencer, and Isaac.  The daughters names, Martha, Margaret, Mary, Lucinda and Ann Spencer.

 

Martha married Jonas Dickey

Margaret married Peter Robinson

Mary married Richard Brand

Lucinda married James Carnahan

Ann married Mathew Closson

 

The father and sons lived on farms joining or cornering each other 2 ˝ miles northeast of Oakwood.  The daughters all lived on farms in the vicinity of Oakwood.

 

My grandfather Robert Hendricks Lighthill was born in Beaver County, Pa., May 29, 1827.  He moved to Richland County, Ohio with his parents in 1837.  December 18, 1851, he married Lydia, the daughter of John and Anette (Randal) McMannis, who was born in Wayne County, Ohio, August 10, 1835.  They moved here to Paulding County with his parents and family in 1852.

 

They obtained their land from the government, taking out a patent deed and they were among the oldest settlers in the county.

 

They were the parents of five daughters and six sons.  The daughters names are as follows: Mary Ann, Lavada, Annaretta, Helen, and Jemima.  The sons, Thomas, B. Dallas, Jefferson, George, Wm. N. and John.

 

Mary Ann married Hiram Hoover and they were the parents of nine children, Mahalia, John, Homer, Frank, and David are deceased.

 

Lucy, Hattie, Minnie and Aaron are living.  Lavada married Charley Matson and they were the parents of three daughters and one son.

 

The daughters were Myrtle, Elva, Violet and one son, Oscar, all deceased.

Annaretta married Boone D. Claypool and as they never lived close here, I do not have any record of their family.  I just know they had a family of sons and daughters.  Helen and Jemima died in infancy.

 

D. Dallas married Amanda Thrasher and they were the parents of 5 sons and 1 daughter. The sons, Irvin, Reuben, Charles, Vernon and Earl.  The daughter’s name was Alice. All deceased.  Thomas married Mary Ann Howard and were the parents of 4 sons, Albert, Burr, Carlton and Dean.  Albert and Carlton are deceased.  Burr and Dean are living.

 

George Lighthill married Elizabeth Penner.  Had a family but I have no record of them.  John Lighthill was married two times, his first wife, Wella Ralston, and the second wife, Wanda McCullough.  He had children both, but I do not have any record of them.  He lived most of his life at Albion Michigan.  Wm N. and Jefferson never married.

 

Thomas Lighthill Family

 

Thomas Lighthill - 1854-1929 - Age 75 yrs.

Mary Ann Lighthill - 1863-1950 - Age 87 yrs.

 

Albert married Nancy Wass and they were parents of one son, Jack, who is a doctor in Santa Monica, California.  They also have an adopted daughter who lives in Chicago, Illinois.  (Madaline) Parents are deceased.

 

Albert Lighthill - 1881-1959 - 78 yrs.

Nancy Lighthill -  ---  - 1952

 

Burr married Iva Bates and they were parents of one son, Russell L. who only lived about 22 months and passed away August 9, 1909.  Iva died in 1955 at the age of 74 yrs.  Burr married Francis (Burt) Frayer for his second wife.  Carlton married Mary E. (Bessie) Straley and they were the parents of three sons and one daughter.  Robert J., Wilbur, Rolland and Glenna.

 

Robert J. lived only a few hours and passed away December 16, 1920.  A tragic thing happened in the family.  Wilbur was a bright, promising boy and went through high school but in his teens, a mental ailment developed. Later, his parents had him taken to Toledo to the mental institution for tests and observation.  I went along with him where he went.  Later, I took his mother and was present and heard the doctors report to her.  He said, “I can give you the medical names of the disease, but you would not understand, so will explain it to you.  It attacks in the adolescent age and is a brain disease.  It is a breaking down of the cells and at this time, medical science has no cure.  They cannot build brain cells.”  He also said, “We have given him every treatment we know of and he does not respond to any of them and his chances of being any better is very remote.  His future is a guess.  He might keep getting worse, some do.  With proper care, he might stay as he is the rest of his life.”  So after about 30 years, he is about the same.  Glenna married Lewis Johnson and they are the parents of three sons and four daughters.
