***** A Record of the Early Settlement of Lower Loup Creek By: L. Neil Darlington Transcribed by: Carol Edds [Booklet published prior to the 1933 publication in the Fayette Tribune}
Enoch Light had come from Indiana, and married Rachel, widow of James Settle, about 1847. They were living on the James Settle fork of Mulberry. Enoch had been married and brought one son, Henry, with him from Indiana.
....further in booklet are the following four paragraphs....
Enoch Light had gone from Mulberry to the present Summerlee region, where he lived a few years. Then returning to Loup Creek, he bought 310 acres of J. J. Coleman in 1858, lying on the south side of Carter Branch, and reaching to the crest of the Carter branch-White Oak ridge. On the NE the tract joined W. T. Harvey's at the head of Dempsey Branch. This land embraced the present farms of W. B. Blake, J. W. Darlington, Mr. Nichols and R. L. Robertson, besides uninproved company land. His dwelling, a log structure, stood at or near the Blake house. Enoch was a farmer and famous bear hunter. He is said to have been attacked once by 7 men. Though stunned by a blow, he quickly recovered and vanquished the whole 7.
With his son, Henry Light, the preacher, Enoch built a combined sawmill and gristmill at the old mill dam between Carwile school and the J. W. Darlington house.
Relinquishing his 310 acre holding here for a smaller one at the head of Upper Johnson Branch, also owned by a Coleman, he moved to the latter place into a log house which he started to build in 1861. Selling this place to Wm. Radford, he bought the old Enoch Light place of 28 acres and died there. Census-1860: Enoch Light-60, Rachel-45, Henry-24, Morris-10, and Samuel-7
Samuel Light, who married Elizabeth, d/o William Treadway, Sr. lived at many places on the upper part of the creek, including the Jesse Treadway house at the head of White oak, the Kilbuck house in the head of Johnson Branch, and the Mosley house. In his latter days he lived in a new house built by his son, R. L. Light. Samuel was a farmer.
