their father for them. The father continued to hold the title in his
own name to insure against the sons divesting themselves of the land.
The sister Clara, who married Harry Seeley, had her home three to
four miles distant, on the Susquehanna River, about one mile above
Bainbridge village. The four brothers lived all their long lives upon the
farms where they first settled and all reared large families: William
12, Charles 12, Daniel 5, Samuel 13. The sister, Clara Seeley, con-
tinued in her home and reared 7 children. The four homes now in
1906, more than one hundred years after their settlement, are owned
by descendants, and all but the Daniel Lyon place still of the Lyon
name.

William married Sarah Woolsey about 1796. He was a Whig in
politics; both were Methodists. Three children were born to them at
Bedford and nine at Bainbridge. Eleven grew to adult years. Nine
married and had homes near them, and children were born to eight
of them while the grandparents lived. Sally, the youngest, married
and Hannah, unmarried, continued at the homestead as long as father
or mother lived. He died Sept. 2, 1844, she Oct. 20, 1849 aged 73
years. Both were buried in the homestead burial plot. This plot in-
cludes graves of children and grandchildren. It is enclosed by stone
wall and is well cared for by Horace Lyon and his son, Hudson Horace,
and their families, who now have this homestead.

Horace, son of Charles, and Deborah Lyon Doolittle, daughter of
Samuel, are all that, of their generation, in 1907, survive of the forty-
two children of the four brothers who came to Bainbridge a century
and four years before. There were fifty-four grandchildren. Ten of
them served in the Union army in the Civil war.
