William was the youngest of nine children born to Anderson and Matilda Light. On August 22, 1883 he married Mary Louise Tidwell in Weatherford, Texas.
He earned a living hauling freight between Forts Weatherford and Belknap in Texas. His farm in Jack County was between the two forts. Cotton and silage crops were the mainstay of the farm. At one time William and his sons farmed in Parker County, Texas.
In the 1930 Census William and Mary Louise Light's sons occupations were listed as follows:
Jesse (not in census as he was in the Philippines teaching English)
Ralph, laborer with green horses, (sometime in his life he was a baptist minister)
Charlie, farmer on general farm,
Roy, farmer on a truck farm, (he also earned a living as a carpenter) and
George, bridge construction for county roads (later he worked for Mobil Oil.)
