Go down this page to John Hull Rardin obit and there’s a bit about a catherine Light his mother Catherine Light ( Daughter of Jacob and Catherine Light) who was from Clermont County and moved to Coles County. This is the same route I suspect James Whitney and Ruth Light took. It’s another Light family to track down. One of his sisters Nancy married a George Golliday. This could be how Ruth met Joseph!!!
It seems they were also in Campbell County where I think James WHitney’s sister Rachel lived briefly. Also, they apparently lived in Jasper County MO for a bit where Rachel’s daughter is for a time and where some of the Whitney/GOlliday clan lived briefly.
It looks like some of the bodies where taken back here to bury as well.
