Please allow me to introduce myself. I am at work using Google as I always do in my research and I ran into a Blighton website. I am a Blighton (maiden name). My father was Keith Blighton born August 24th, 1929 of Glenn Blighton and Marie Halsted-Blighton in Des Moines, Iowa. My father's father (Glenn) was institutionalized in the 1940s and my father was not allowed to see him. In July of 2000 my father succumbed to Pick's Disease. We were asked many questions during my father's illness from the doctors treating him. You see he was part of a UCLA study as respects British ancestry and related brain diseases. We knew nothing. After a lot of investigation we were able to learn what hospital our grandfather was in and found his records. He too suffered from a serious brain disorder though at the time not identified. The members of my family are Keith Blighton Jr., Stephanie Blighton, Glenda Blighton Tatge and me (Debra Blighton Imielski). My father had one sister - Maxine Blighton Schiffer. I know this may not be related to your Thomas Blighton, but I am anxious to find more of my fathers family members and this a start. Any response would be greatly appreciated.
