I have worked long and hard on this line. My Elizabeth BRIGHT married William Lovick. I am still not sure if Elizabeth was the daughter of Capt. Simon BRIGHT, (Who's son James married Elizabeth LOVICK according to the James Bright Bible 1796-1819)) but I believe her to be and am still looking for primary sources to document that.

Many thanks to those who share their research.
