Looking for info and references on Dr James G. Lightner, buried in Shirleysburg Cemetery.Headstone reportedly says died Nov 19, 1882 at 87 years of age suggesing a birhyear of 1795.Early census records in 1800's report ages suggesting birth year of 1805.1880 census matches neither. Looking to confirm birthdate and place, proportedly Lancaster County, PA.
Also looking for info on his lineage as far back as possible.
I've read and searched through all the messages on this board going back to 2000 and find some great work on the Lightners but find nothing apparent on Dr James G Lightner.
Any and all assistance greatly appreciated. John Furniss
