Notes for David Lightle: In the Hamilton Twp Census recordsfor 1871, the family name is listed distinctively as "LYGHTLE." From 1881 onwards, it seems to have been altered to "Lightle." There are also many families in the same Township with the surname "Little" - they do not immediately appear to be related. Living next door to David's family in the 1871 Census, is Christopher Lyghtle (David's father), aged 82 yrs, born in Ireland who is a Widower.
David does not appear in the 1901 Hamilton Twp Census and his wife, Margaret, is resident with their son George - as a Widow.
