    • Oliver Perry Light's notes give his death date and cause as smallpox
      Can not find his burial place. It is possible his second wife took him back to be buried in Blue River twp., Harrison Co.,Ind. because she returned there and remarried. Since she moved before the 1850 census was taken, and no one was still in th e family home, he did not make the 1850 Mortality Schedule.(In the 1856 Iowa State Census, daughter Sarah Ann said they moved there in 1842, and son Enoch said they moved in 1844.)
