This profile represents the possible spouse or partner of Ga-Ho-Ga and possible father of some of her children. He is distinct from the known and documented John Lightfoot and Capt. John Lightfoot. Please do not merge them. Thank you.


A previous version of this profile claimed, citing an online family tree that does not source this particular fact, that he had two sons and two daughters with Ga'Ho'Ga' UNKNOWN between 1755 and 1776:

Other researchers say there is no evidence of such a union or of children with Ga-ho-ga.

He died in 1769 in Georgia at the age of 44.[citation needed]

There is no documentary evidence to date connecting Gahoga and her daughters to anyone named Lightfoot.

Okay, I'm retaining this profile as the possible spouse of Ga-ho-ge, but detaching him from known and documented Lightfoot relations, which I've also marked as Rejected Matches. He then serves as a placeholder.
