George Tucker “Red” Lightbourne was a well-known native of Bermuda where he owned and operated one of the two most productive lime kilns that served the nation. In fact, Red Kiln Road in Crawl is named for him. George was a brother of my paternal grandmother, Doris Elizabeth Lightbourne (Henehan) and her siblings (who married Brown, Lines, Kruger, Galyon, Williams and Young).

The accompanying newspaper article describes his arduous labors along with a dedicated team of Bermudian workers who provided Bermudians with the vital lime wash material required to protect their homes and water supplies.

Our Father, the late (1918-2007) George Herbert Henehan, was named for him.

Bermudians are demonstrably sturdy, sensible and hard-working folk!
