NOTE 25.— MAJOR THOMAS LYON OF LYON BROOK, N. Y.

In the Lyon Memorial, Connecticut and New Jersey Families, p.
249 it is stated that three brothers, Samuel, Alexander and "Major"
Lyon, "from Connecticut or Rhode Island" settled in 1791 at Lyon
Brook, Chenango Co., N. Y. The information came from a descendant
of this Samuel Lyon and should be authentic. Reasons are given
(loc. cit.) for the belief that these three brothers were from Rhode
Island, and that they were descendants of Henry Lyon of Newark.
The accjount stated that of the three brothers, two, Samuel and Alex-
ander, had served in the Revolutionary war "in a Connecticut regi-
ment." The name Alexander Lyon, however, does not occur in any list
of Revolutionary soldiers from Connecticut, and the vague family tra-
dition cannot be given much weight. The definite statement, however,
that the third brother, "Major" Lyon, was killed at Little York in a
fight with the British in 1812, is confirmed by the following passage
found in the Annals of Oxford. Thomas Lyon, one of three brothers
who came to Oxford, N. Y., from Dutchess County in 1792, "became
a major and led a regiment of State Troops from the County of Chen-
ango in the War of 1812. Towards the close of 1813 General Dearborn,
under whom Major Lyon served, crossed Lake Erie with seventeen
hundred men, with the intention of attacking York, now Toronto, and
then the chief depot of the British Posts in the West. A landing was
made before York on the 27th of the month [April] under hot fire, but
the Americans pushed on and the enemy were driven from the works.
The Americans were still pressing toward the main works when a
magazine exploded, a plot of the British. Two hundred Americans
were killed and wounded, among the mortally wounded being Majop
Lyon, who was carried on board the Commodore's vessel and there died,
the death of a hero." In fact the troops who were engaged in the at-
tack upon York were under the command of Gen. Zebulon M. Pike,
and that oflBcer with two of his aides, one of them very possibly Major



APPENDIX 321

Thomas Lyon, were mortally injured in the explosion. General Pike
lingered long enough to receive the British ensign torn down from the
captured fort.

It is clear that Major Thomas Lyon was not Thomas' No. 288
[David*, Jonathan^ Thomas", Thomas^], whose history is given else-
where in this volume in detail. The conjecture that the three brothers
were sons of Thomas Lyon of Cranston, R. I., whose brother John re-
moved from Rhode Island about 1794 (?) to Sherburne, Chenango Co.,
N. Y., is a very plausible one. If one further assumes that John Lyon
born at Lyons Farms about 1698 accompanied or followed his brother,
Lieutenant James, to Rhode Island, we have this possible lineage:
Major Thomas^ Thomas*, John^ SamueP, HenryS of Newark.

Returning to the Annals of Oxford, we find the statement that
Thomas, David and Samuel Lyon, brothers, went from Dutchess Coun-
ty, N. Y.,t to Oxford, N. Y., in 1792. "They went up the river in a
canoe from Great Bend, Pa., and settled at what is now known as
Lyons Brook, then called Can-na-wa-go. They purchased seven square
miles of land for one shilling per acre. After meeting with many
vicissitudes they finally cleared the land and developed several fine
farms and erected grist mills and saw mills." Evidently this is another
version of the story of the brothers, Alexander, Samuel and "Major",
who "came to Lyon Brook in 1791, bought land of Benjamin Hovey,
Grov. Clinton's land agent for one shilling an acre, and built a grist
mill, a lumber mill and a woolen mill." The brothers could not have
been Thomas, David and Samuel, Nos. 288, 292 and 294, but there is
reason to believe that David No. 292 did go to Chenango county to
live, for it is stated that in 1811 his sister Elizabeth Jacobs, No. 287
went to join him there. A daughter of David, Susanne or Susan mar-
ried a son of Samuel Lyon of Lyons Brook, and it is stated by their
grand daughter. Miss Anna Holcomb, that these Lyons were not re-
lated ["were of entirely different dens"]. Miss Holcomb gives the
following record.

Children of Samuel and ( ) Lyon:

I. Daniel; m. .

II. Huldah; m. Charles Smith.

III. Sally; m. Rathbone.



tCircum-stantial as this account is. it may be after all that the three brothers
did not come from Dutchess County. It would be natural to assume that they
came from there, because other Lyons in Chenango County were from that
locality.

LYON FAMILIES OF PENNSYLVANIA.

About 1750-1763 there came from Enniskillen, co. Ulster, Ireland,
to Pennsylvania a Lyon family whose descendants are now widely
spread and number some of the most prominent representatives of the
Lyon family in America. The ancestry of the Irish family has not
been traced, but there is every reason to believe that it sprang from
the same stock as the English families. It is observable that in Ireland
as in England the name appears both with and without the final "s."
The immigrants were John Lyon with his family, and three sons of
his younger brother, James.

3000. I. . JOHN* LYON, of Enniskillen, Ireland, was

born early in the eighteenth century. He married in Ireland Margaret
Armstrong whose brother Col. John Armstrong, was also an immigrant
to America, and played a prominent part in Colonial and Revolutionary
days in Pennsylvania history. John died in 1780, will dated Dec. 13,
1779; his widow died about 1793; both were buried in Tuscarora. They
settled 1763 on a farm two miles west of Mifflintown, Pa.

died Feb. 7, 1809. He married first, 1756, Alice, daughter of his uncle,
Col. John Armstrong. He married second Ann Fleming. He was a
lieutenant 1757 in the Colonial army, and in the following year was in

LYON FAMILY OF MARBLEHEAD, MASS.

Of the origin of the Marblehead Lyon family nothing has been
ascertained. A few years ago there was advertised for sale a Lyon
coat of arms, said to have been for several generations in possession
of this family; also a very complete manuscript record of the family
history. These may sometime be rediscovered. The facts here given
are all gathered from parish and town records of Marblehead.
