Page 99, No. 61. — A^bel Lyon married probably Sarah Baldwin.

Page 99, No. 62. — ^Abigail Crane was born, not 1713 but either in
1714 or 1721; the latter date agrees best with the date of her marriage.
Abigail and Samuel were second cousins. The son David, No. 174,
was Capt. David Lyon of Elizabethtown; see page 247. Samuel Lyon
and Abigail Crane had also a daughter Phebe, No. 2164, p. 238.

Page 99, No. 64. — Nathaniel Lyon was born about 1721; died Jan.
or Feb. 1761.

Page 100, No. 65. — Josiah Lyon was born probably about 1716.
His children should be arranged probably in about the following order:

I. Phebe.

II. Mary.

Page 101, No. 68. — Henry Lyon married Mary, not Hannah Wood.
Capt. Christopher Wood died Feb. 8, 1759; his will was made Nov. 20,
1758. His widow, Phebe (Johnes) Wood died 1785; her will made
April 14, 1772, mentions Mary, wife of Henry Lyon. The statement
that only the first three children were born before 1759 is based merely
on the fact that these were named in their grandfather Wood's will;

it is probable tliat all were born before 1759. Henry married possibly

a second wife Hannah . It is probable that his son James,

No. 188, was Col. James, No. 2163a, (p. 238), and that Stephen; No.
192, was the unidentified Stephen, No. 2165, whose birth is given on p.
238 as 1751, on p. 239 as 1765. The record however on page 239 cer-
tainly does not all relate to this Stephen, whose wife, however, was
probably Mary.

Page 101, No. 69. — David^ Littell was son of John= and Mary
[George^ and Alice Poore].

Page 101, N.O. 194. — ^This Joseph was almost certainly the father
of Capt. Joseph Lyon, No. 71.

Page 101, No. 197. — This Samuel Lyon was possibly the father of
the unidentified Samuel, No. 2170a, born 1780 (p. 240).

Page 101, No. 202. — For Strain read Straun.

Page 101, No. 70. — The dates of birth and death of Abraham Lyon
are identical with those of Mary, wife of Josiah Lyon, No. 65. The
circumstance leads one to suspect that some error has been made by
a transcriber; it does not prove that they are erroneous as referring
to Abraham. An expert genealogist states that Abraham was born in
1710 and died 1732. It is mentioned that he had one son Abraham, a
Captain in the Revolutionary Army. If this is true, Capt. Abraham was
almost certainly an only child, and born the year of his father's death.

Page 103, No. 83. — ^Kezia Baldwin married, not Isaac Crane but
Samuel* Crane [John', Azariah^ Jasper']. The children named as
those of Isaac and Kezia Vere except the last, children of Samuel and

Kezia. Isaac married and had a son Isaac, who married and

in turn had a son Isaac, born 1767. No further trace of descendants.

Church at Lyons Farms April 17, 1769. He married first about 1738-

9t Phebe , undoubtedly Dalglish or Douglas. His second wife

was Abigail Baldwin, born about 1724, died some where between 1773
and 1779. She was daughter of Nathaniel* Baldwin§, 1690-1750 [John^
and Ruth Botsford, daughter of Henry, John- and Mary, Sylvester* and
Sarah Bryant]. Record of dates of birth of the older children are
wanting, except in the case of Phebe. The following record is prob-
ably substantially correct, although the name of Joseph should stand
first in the list.

Children of Ezekiel and Phebe (Dalglish?) Crane:

I. Phebe; b. 1740; bapt. at Lyons Farms Baptist Church, Oct. 15, 1769;
m. Deacon John Ball [Timothy', Thomas^, Edwardi] ; d. 1781.

II. Sarah; b. about 1742; m. a Crane, probably Matthias*, b. 1737-8;

d. 1777; grad. Tale College [John' and Abigail , Azariah^ Jasper*];

they had children.

III. Rachel; b. 1744-5; d. 1783-7; m. Joseph Lyon, A. B. (No. 91).

IV. Joseph; b. 1738-9; d. 1779-80; bapt. with Phebe, Oct. 15, 1769; m.
Eunice Dod, daughter of Thomas; it was his uncle Joseph, No. 87, who married
Elizabeth Johnson, afterwards Mrs. Paul Day.

Children of Ezekiel and Abigail (Baldwin) Crane:

V. Jonathan; b. Dec. 22, 1749; d. Feb. 1753, not 1785 as stated.

VI. Joanna; b. about 1751; m. 1st Joseph^ Plum, b. 1745, d. 1787 [John*.
John', Samuel-, John^], they had children, one of whom was Isaac, the first
Plum to change the name to Plume. Joanna m. 2nd about 178 8 Elias B. Vree-
land, b. Dec. 20, 1750; d. March 29, 1828; bur. in Canfleld Graveyard, Cedar
Grove, N. J.

VIL Elias; b. Sept. 10 1753; d. March 13. 1809; m. about 1775 Phebe«
Brown, b. Feb. 12, 1758, d. 1828, [Stephen^, Stephen*. Joseph', John^, Johni].
Elias was a private in Capt. Josiah Pierson's Company, Second Regt. Essex
Co., Revolutionary Army.

Page 103, No. 237. — The children of Deacon John and Phebe
(Crane) Ball were:

I. Calvin.
II : Liuther.

fThe grounds for believing that Ezekiel was twice married are these:
1. His daughter Phebe was born in 1740, when Abigail Baldwin was only
sixteen years old, possibly seventeen or eighteen [Baldwin Genealogy says she
was born 1724, the date was certainly not before 1722]; 2. An Ezekiel Crane
"born about 1710" married Phebe Dalglish [Douglas], born 1715, daughter of
John^ and Sarah (Ward) Dalglish [Robert' and Mary Dennison] ; no Ezekiel
Crane is recorded in New Jersey earlier than 1727-8 except this Ezekiel of
Joseph b. 1711; note also that Phebe Dalglish's mother was Sarah and that
Phebe had a sister Rachel, who married a Canfleld.

§Nathaniel Baldwin married first Mary Congar, dau. of Samuel= [John' and
Mary] — so says Baldwin Genealogy; others say that Nathaniel's wife was
Mary' Crane [Azariah^ and Mary Treat, Jasper* and Alice]. Mary Treat was
the daughter of Capt. Robert Treat and Jane Tapp, dau. of Edmund Tapp.

Capt. Robert Treat was son of Richard Treat and Alice . Nathaniel

had seven children by wife Mary. In 1730 he married a second wife Esther,
1689-1763, and had Ave children by her.

III. Phebe [Littell's Genealogy calls her Rachel.]

Deacon John Ball married second Miss Fairchild and had: 1. John;

2. David; 3. Daniel; 4. Uzel.

XI. Abigail; b. 1794; d. 1836.

XII. WUUam; b. 1799.

Page 103, No. 85. — Israel Crane, according to competent authority
married Sarah . Perhaps he was more than once married.

Page 103, No. 240. — Israel Crane, Jr., born about 1735-40 had a son
Israel, born about 1760-1765, of Cranetown, N. J. He married Fanny
Pierson, daughter of Dr. Matthias Pierson of Orange, N. J. This
Israel Crane was a well known road builder and public spirited Jersey-
man, who for many years owned the Pompton Turnpike, and who was
a commissioner appointed by the State to finance the Morris Canal.

Page 103, No. 86. — Jerusha Cook, wife of Capt. Josiah Crane, was
daughter of Obediah Cook of Long Island. Captain Josiah and his
wife Jerusha were buried in the cemetery at Connecticut Farms, now
called Union.

Page 103, No. 245.— Sarah Crane died before 1785.

Page 103, Footnote. — ^The statements of this footnote involve
chronological impossibilities. It is true that there was an Isaac Crane
who married Mary Muchmore, daughter of Samuel, but it could not
have been the Isaac born 1767. [A. B. L.].

Page 104, No. 251. — ^Josiah Crane died after the close of the war
in 1785, while on a journey to visit Ms brother Elias who had re-
moved to Kentucky. He married Abigail Lyon, daughter of John, No.

51. His wife's family lived in Morris County and he went from Essex
County up into Morris County and enlisted in the army and is supposed
to have been married sometime during the Revolutionary war. It is
stated that he was a soldier in the Jersey Blues and was with Washing-
ton and Lafayette in all the battles fought in New Jersey, including
Trenton, Monmouth and Brandywine,

Children of Josiah and Abigail (Lyon) Crane:

I. John Josiah (?); date of birth in doubt; the Crane Genealogy says,
b. March 8, 1767; d. 1808; m. Nov. 7, 1790, Rebecca Saffer, b. Sept. 22, 1769;
d. Oct. 26, 1847; something is wrong here if John Josiah was really son of
Josiah, b. 1753.

II. Benjamin; b. at Lyons Farms, Feb. 18, 1783; d. in New York, 1832;
m. 1st Elsey Schuyler; m. 2nd Jane Low.

married first, March 28, 1804, Elsey Schuyler, born March 28, 1787,
died July 15, 1806. He married second in New York City April 25,
1807, Jane Low, who was born Aug. 16, 1783, died Dec. 14, 1833; daugh-

Page 104, No. 90. — The data in this paragraph certainly do not
relate to Bphraim Sayre, No. 90. This Ephraim was popularly known
as Deacon Ephraim Sayre. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary
Army and a personal and intimate friend of Washington. Among the
descendants of this Ephraim are Joseph Sayre, architect, of Newark,
N. J., Sidney L. Thompson of Elizabeth, N. J., and Dr. Lewis Albert
Sayre, the founder of Bellevue Hospital, New York City. John Sayre,
a brother of Ephraim resided in New York City in 1785. He removed
to Philadelphia. Among his descendants were Dr. Francis Bowes
Sayre, also died during the yellow fever epidemic of 1799 and, in the
present day, Robert Sayre of South Bethlehem, Pa., owner of the
Sayre Observatory there; he is also a banker and railroad magnate.
The record in the text of the children of Ephraim Sayre — also the
footnote, should be canceled as irrelevant.

Page 105, No. 91. — ^Rachel Crane, wife of Joseph Lyon, A. B., was
born 1744-5, not 1739, and was probably daughter of Ezekiel and
Phebe, not of Ezekiel and Abigail, as already stated. In line 2, page
105, for 1892 read 1802. In line 5, instead of "cousin" read "second
cousin." Joseph Lyon, A. B., made his will Feb. 5, 1817, probated June
16, 1821. Names his wife Sarah and children Sarah Wilbur and Mary
Cook, also names Abraham Cook, husband of Mary Cook. Executor

Meeker and Phebe Meeker. Note that the descendants of Joseph
Lyon, A. B., trace by two lines to Joseph- Lyon and Henry^ Lyon.
