Clairborne Lightfoot and Elizabeth Betsy Wray
I am working on the various family ties to the Ray / Wray Family in early Brunswick Co, VA. When I stumbled upon a Chacey Record in Brunswick Co, VA, the name Lightfoot looked very familiar to me. I opened up my genealogy program and found this Lightfoot family. Over the years I have become better at documenting who provided information to me but I do not know who the source of this information is. Also, in my notes, it would appear that the Lightfoot family was in Warren Co, KY and Allen Co, KY. Allen Co, KY is the estate / death location of Nathaniel Ray Jr.
There are likely a number of daughters but I have not had the time to fully build out this tree.
