Re: Lightle family from Ohio
Here is some information. My grandfather George Mahlon Lightle was born in Sedalia, Ohio, near Washington C.H.. He lived in Springfield from 1940-1951. He is buried in Mechanicsburg. I have heard of the orphaned situation but I am not sure who it was. His father was Noah Mahlon Lightle from Ross County. Noah had an older brother named Isaac born in 1841 and married to Eliza Robinson in 1867. The spelling might have been Lytel or Lytle as well as Lightle. My grandfather had a brother named Jesse Hiram 1878-1934.
I hope this helps you in some way.
