Mr. Lightcap was united in marriage here twenty-five years ago to Miss Lena Lincoln, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Lincoln, who survives him. The remains will arrive here at 5:15 o'clock Wednesday evening over the Illinois Central railroad, and will be taken directly to the west side cemetery, where Rev.
