Mark M. Brighton, b. Abt 1867 in Indiana. He and his wife, Lila C. Waters (daughter of Dwight R. Waters) had 4 children: Nellie Lois, Clarence, Edith May, and Evelyn Awilda. Nellie married Harry E. Coleman in Feb 1911 according to notice in The Washington Post.
Found a newspaper notice in Ft. Wayne Sentinel, Feb. 20, 1891 announcing the death of Mrs. Nellie Bagott of Clay City (Indiana). She was 29, and according to this article was the daughter of Alexander Brighton, ex-treasurer of Clay county. Cannot find marriage record, or any other information, about Nellie (Melissa E.) Brighton and her descendants. Would like to know more.
