My maternal great great grandfather is Alexander C. Lightbourne.  He was a biracial man from the Nassau, New Providence Bahamas who came to the United States in 1865/66.

He lived in Tallahasee for  while and was a Sergeant at arms in the Florida House of Representatives.  He was also a Justice of the Peace in Gadsen County and County Commissioner.

He was also active in the Bethel AME church.  He was a co founder in the Bethel AME church in Miami in 1896 and was a signer of the Miami charter in July 1896.  

I suspect that his father was Paul Samuel Lightbourn born 1824-1908 bu5 I’m do not not have any idea who is mother might have been.

This is probably not helpful, but I actually met a Bahamian native from Nassau named Sabrina Lightbourn, who was the photographer at my cousin's wedding on Harbour Island last December. She said her great grandfather was a sea captain. You can find her on Facebook.
Thank you
