Leibheit/ LIghthite & Van Houten Families of Morris Co.

Posted: 1033839701000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Leibheit, Lighthite, Libehite, Van Houten, Duffy
I have Johann / John Leibheit/ Lighthite who married Mary/ Polly Duffy. He had come to this country as a "Hessian" (actually from Braunschweig), and after capture, release on condition of service, and settling in Morris County, raised 6 known children. Amongst these, Margaret / Peggy married David Van Houten, and later moved to Flemmingsville, NY; and Charles married Maria Smith Condit at (prob.) Newark, NJ and then settled in the Oranges, where he became rather prominent. A third child Jacob, eventualy died in Florida in the Seminole Wars.
I am looking for more information on all of this family, especially David & Margaret's children, several of whom moved on to upstate New York and Ohio. I am also interested in John and Polly Lighthipe's children and Polly's family as I have virturally nothing on these. Please Email me at
