John and Mary Lightcap Family

JOHN LIGHTCAP was born about 1778 in New Jersey. He died after Jul 1864. He married MARY CHAMBERLIN. She was born about 1791 in New Jersey. She died after 1860. Neither of their burial locations is known.

JOHN LIGHTCAP and MARY CHAMBERLIN had the following children:

  1. William Lightcap
  2. Godfrey C. S. Lightcap
  3. Eleanor “Ellen” Lightcap
  4. Robert Henry Lightcap
  5. Levi Lightcap (my ggg-grandfather)
  6. Angeline “Anna” Lightcap
  7. Holoway W. Lightcap
  8. Augustus G. Lightcap
  9. Isaac Bateman Lightcap
  10. Mary Jane Lightcap


  • My mother, Linda Lightcap, has spent years researching the John and Mary Lightcap family. Without her hard work, research skills and perseverance, the familial links would not have happened. Without her research on Robert, Levi, and especially, John Lightcap, I would be lost.
  • Carol Harner is a fellow researcher and Lightcap “cousin” who provided me invaluable information on the families of Angeline (Lightcap) Lawrence and Mary Jane (Lightcap) Brooks. She’s conducted extensive research on these lines, and her insight has been extremely helpful.
