Looking for info on William Luce, m. Susan Leighty

Surnames: Luce, Leighty
Looking for parents of my ggg grandfather William Luce, who was born around 1823 in Ohio. He married Susan Leighty, who was born around 1827 in Ohio, and they had a daughter, Mary Catherine, who was raised by Susan's brother Samuel from the age of 4--I'm guessing William and Susan died around 1855 or 1856.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

I am having trouble zeroing in without some other connectors...

Would Samuel and Susan's parents be: Daniel Leight and Nancy Shock (or Shonk)?

Was Mary possibly born in PA?
Did Mary Catherine marry someone? If So, who?
I have another possibility showing up with that.

Could William have been born in PA or NY?

Couple more pieces and I may be able to put this together.

Mary Luce was married to Eli Barrett (they were my gg grandparents).

Mary's maternal grandparents were John Leighty and Catherine Baker (or Becker). Catherine's line goes straight up to Henry I, through her mother Susannah Hay.

I'm just trying to find more Leightys. William and Susan were both born in Ohio. Their daughter Mary was born in Indiana, I think Kosciusko County.

oh that links a few things, i have been trying to figure out the eli barrett thing for a few weeks and i had a Mary C Luce attached to him. I thought they may be duplicates of Mary Catherine but wasnt sure.

I will merge that over and see what new I can get from that.

I may have found Mary C Luce in res with
Jonathan and Sophia luce in pleasant, In.

are they connected that you know of?
also, there seems to be a move to Colorado
and Kansas in that family. I didnt find her with them
after the first source though in 1860.

No, Mary Luce was raised by her maternal uncle, Samuel Leighty, from the time she was 4. I heard that her parents had died.

You mention Catherine Baker (Becker) in this post. Who were her parents? I have Baker ancestors in Kosciusko Co. and may have info to share.
