We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to WorldFamilies.net at mari@worldfamilies.net.  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by Worldfamilies.net or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

Please include the following:  (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)
•       Name of project
•       Kit Number
•       Name of person posting pedigree
•       Email address to be posted with pedigree
•       Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
•       List each succeeding generation, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

If you are NOT A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum below.  We hope an interested researcher will see it and contact you to share information.

Jesse & Jim Light came from England as children with their parents Julia Osborn and Jesse Light around the turn of the century 1900. 

Jim had no children, was married, and involved with plays in Virginia and New York.  The Saturday evening post wrote an article when he died.

Jesse married Lucy Magdalene Jerling (changed name from Garling as Germans were not liked).  They lived in Pittsburgh, PA.  They had son Jesse Junior, and later daughter Mary Elizabeth Light b. 1929.  All have died.

Jesse Junior married Elaine and had Mark, Barbara, and Eddie.  They lived in Oklahoma City, OK.  All married and had children, except Barbara had no children, and has since died.

Mary married William Robert Mitchell and had Kathy, Konny, Billy, and Jim.  They lived in Georgia.  The boys married and had daughters.  Kathy married with no children.
