I have been searching for my great great grandfather Anderson M Light (1827-1885)from TN who moved to Perry Co KY and then to Parker Co TX and felt like he was a part of this Light family somewhere so I have done some digging and looking at various postings on Ancestry.com.What I found was that John Light (died 1736) & Ann Lucia (born 1695 had a son John Light (1715 VA-?) who married Bridget Greene (1729-1790) and they had the following children:(1) George (1737-1774), (2) Jacob (1739-1818)& Ann Russell (1737-1818), (3)William (1740-1819) & Patience Dillingham (1742-1813), (4) Hannah (1751 Halifax VA-?) who married John Brown (1743-?), (5) John Jr (1753-1824)& Joanna Dickson (?-1806), (6) Sarah (1754VA-?) & ? Childress/Childree/Childers(not sure of spelling) and (7) Agnes (1756-?) & Joseph Moody.I didn't spend much time on researching the girls since I was looking for a Light surname but I did find that Hannah & John Brownhad the following children:John 1765, Martin 1767, Sally, 1769, James 1771, Bridget 1773, Fleming 1775, Lazarus 1777 and Ursley 1779.I just doubled checked ancestry.com to see if there was any more info that someone else had already found and I see where Martin married Dec 6 1788 to Caty Younger (no dates for her and no idea who her parents were.There is no indication of who John Brown's parents were.I would suggest looking in Halifax Co VA where Hannah was born for marriage records, land records, death records, etc.I have no idea if they stayed in VA after marriage or if they migrated to TN or SC/GA where the other siblings of Hannah went. I believe that the 1st John Light mentioned above was the first to US and came from England and probably from the Lyte family there but I haven't done enough digging to ascertain this.If I find my Anderson Light ties into this family I will do further research.Everything I did was cursory until I find a definite link. I know that there was a book published for a family reunion up in TN that has this info in it.I have tried to find a copy of it but all were sold there at the reunion.I don't think it was published for the "general population" to purchase.It was called Light Family Book by B. Light.I hope I have helped but I fear not but this is all I have.Good luck & happy hunting. (The Obediah this original message is about is one of Jacob's children (Jacob being a brother to Hannah).
