Liz, I've read the text on the link you provided, and see no reference to John, son of Philip, having died without issue. Where do you see it?

EDIT: Found it on this page.

I think the birth/death info is for the John Lightfoot who married Mary Clack, who m Ruffin 1751. I think this John Lightfoot who married a Cherokee, was someone else. Probably the John who served in the Revolutionary War, b c1730, with a son named William.
