I am a descendant of Jonathan D. Lichty.Here is some info I have on his parentage:
George David "David" Lichdi/Lichty dates unknown m. Katherine "Katie" Bittner d/o George Bittner (1771-1843) and Elizabeth Walker Bittner (1775-1847) b.01 or 06-26-1796Brothersvalley Twp., Somerset Co., PA bapt. 04-15-1796? Pine Hill Lutheran Church, Brothersvalley Twp, Smst. Co. PA d. unknown
1.Joseph b. 08-01-1820 2.Jonathan D.b. 09-07-1822 d. 07-25-1904 1m. Mary Reese (d. 12-18-1853) d/o George Reese and Betsy Weaver; 2m. Harriet Smith d/o Simon Smith and Catherine Bittner (yes, Jonathan and Harriet were cousins, I have more info on this...) 3.Daniel b. 02-06-1825 4.Harriettb. 05-16-1827
Somewhere, I have George "David" Lichty's parentage which includes a Christian Lichdi, I will have to search for that info.
I have a cousin who found that when Katherine died, George "David" left his children here in Somerset County and he went somewhere else.He remarried, had more children and never returned to PA.
