Thanks for the posting for Major John Light, a true hero of the Revolution.
After the war he returned to Lancaster and married his girl friend Catherine Brizius (Bridges?). They had a daughter, Sarah, who had a son Dr. John Light Atlee who became renowned for developing surgical procedures to treat female disorders. Major John bought the tavern "The Sign of the Ship" but when he sold it in 1803 it was called "The Anchor". He was active in democratic politics in Lancaster and for 26 years (1798-1824) was clerk of the Sun Engine and Hose Company. He passed the sword he carried in the war to his grandson and established the family tradition of passing it from grandson to grandson. It was an object of discussion on Antiques Roadshow last year or the year brfore. Maj. John Light was not a relative of mine.
