The Lightwoods Park has a namesake in Saskatchewan, Canada, called the Lightwoods District which still exists, of course. Two of the early Pioneers left your area for here and felt there were similarities to your park and their new land. I am currently working on family history and have found the web sites very interesting. When the Lightwoods School District was formed, Bear Wood was one of the possible names. I did wonder why until I looked at these websites. At one time I had thought it was due to our black bears. Thank you.
Wow, that is really interesting Carol, thank you.
