1408. VII. 723. HON. WILLIAM PENIST LYON [Isaac', Thomas',
Daniel*, Jonathan^ Thomas^ Thomas^], born Oct. 28, 1822, in the town
of Chatham, N. Y. ; married Nov. 18, 1847, Adelia Caroline Duncombe,
who was born July 13, 1826 at St. Thomas, Ontario. She was daughter
of Dr. Elijah Ely Duncombef (b. March 15, 1795 in Delaware Co., N.
Y., moved to St. Thomas, Ontario about 1824; died there in 1870), and
Katharine Bonck (born Feb. 6, 1802; died 1860). They reside (1906)
at Edenvale, Calif, near their children, Mrs. Clara Hayes and William
Penn Lyon Jr.

It can well be said of William Penn Lyon that he began at the
lowest rung of the ladder and by his own efforts attained a prominent
position in life. At eleven years of age he left the district school to
work in his father's store near the little village of Rayville, N. Y.,
subsequently attending "select school" about one year, but the world
was a school for him and every good book a teacher. At fifteen he
was teaching a district school and later he was a clerk in a grocery
store in the city of Albany, N. Y. Here outside of business hours
he spent much of his time in attending the courts and sessions of the
Legislature and in his mind now grew a desire that served as an In-

Delaware Co., N. Y. Katharine Bonck was daughter of Wilhelminus and Anne
(Lawyer) Bonck of Schoharie Co., N. Y.

centive throughout his public career. In 1841 he moved with his father
to Walworth Co., Wis. and lived there on a new farm. If in this wild
country he forgot his ambition, it was of short duration, for one morn-
ing in early winter he set out to walk to Elkhorn, the County seat of
Walworth Co., to borrow a law book that some one had promised to
loan him. On his return home, stiff and sore from walking through the
deep snow, he lay on his back with the book open, and now began tha
education in law of one who in after years lectured before the classes
of the law department of the State University of Wisconsin, and whose
published opinions as one of the associate justices of the Supreme Court
of Wisconsin have become a part of the law of the land. He afterward
studied law In the office of Judge George Gale of Elkhorn, Wis.; in the
fall of 1845 he entered the office of Judge Charles M. Baker of Geneva,
Wis., and in the Spring of 1846 he was admitted to the bar. Having
been chosen one of the justices of the peace of the town of Lyons, he
opened an office for the practice of his profession and the first twelve
months brought him the munificent income of sixty dollars. From 1850
to 1855 he practiced in Burlington, Wis., when he was elected district
attorney of Racine, Wis., and moved to Racine, Wis. He served two
terms in the Assembly and was each time made speaker.

At the beginning of the rebellion he was commissioned captain of
Co. K of the Eighth Wis. Infantry to rank from Aug. 1861. On Aug.
5, 1862, while in the hospital at Inka, Miss., he was promoted to the
rank of Colonel of the Thirteenth Wis. A brief history of the part
taken by his Company and regiment may be found in the Magazine of
Western History, April 1887. On the eleventh of Sept. 1865, Col. Lyon
was mustered out of service and was subsequently brevetted a brigader
general to date from Oct. 26, 1865. While at the front. Col. Lyon was
chosen judge of the first judicial circuit of Wisconsin, entering upon
his duties Dec. 1, 1865, and serving five years, when upon the death
of Associate Justice Byron Paine he was appointed by Gov. Fairchild
to fill the vacancy. In the following April he was elected by the peo-
ple for the unexpired term. After serving two terms following two
years as ex-offlcio Chief Justice, on Jan. 1, 1894, he retired from the
Supreme Court. During these twenty-three years was performed his
life work, and he feels a just satisfaction in his participation in pre-
paring material for sixty volumes of the Wisconsin reports. The next
two years were spent in California. In 1896, finding he was not ready
to retire from the active duties of life, he accepted a position as mem-

ber on the Wisconsin State Board of Control, of which he became
President and remained such until he resigned in July 1903. Here in
brief are the chief features of the career of a grand and noble man.
A fuller account would tell in detail of his struggle to gain an education
and the many events of his life as he made his way from one position
of usefulness and honor to another, would tell of his disappointments
and many successes, of his joys and sorrows, of the hazardous and
thrilling events of the four years in the army and the work of his
mature years and would tell of the peculiar qualifications that enabled
him to fill with honor every position to which he was called.
