Page 238, No. 2161.— It is stated in line 2 that Mary was born
about 1720; lower on the page the date is given as about 1722; the
latter is perhaps a closer approximation. The first four names in this
list, Nos. 2160, 2161, 2162 and 2163 undoubtedly belong to descendants
of SamueP Lyon through SamueP, Joseph^ Henry^ or possibly

Page 238, No. 2163a. — Colonel James Lyon is identified as James

and Rachel McCoy. He was born April 14, 1781, not 1770-5.

Page 238, No. 2170.— Identifltd as Samuel, No. 606, son of David=
Lyon. The name should certainly not have appeared in this place.

Page 238, No. 2170a. — Probably Samuel son of John No. 199 or
possibly son of Samuel No. 197; in either case grandson of Joseph*
No. 69.

Page 238, No. 2171. — Possibly Aaron No. 400, son of John^

that he married Rachel Townley; on p. 240 that he married Rachel
T'ownley Harrison, the former no doubt her maiden name; the latter

son of David' No. 178, and was born in 1789, not in 1755 (or 1751 as
it Is on p. 238). The Stephen born 1751-5 was No. 192; his wife's

page, for Walter Lyon, No. 415, read Walter Lyon, No. 280. The
same correction should be made in the illustration facing page 301.

Page 352, line 12. — For Palo, read Polo.

Page 375, Line 9. — Clarinda (not Clorinda) Lyon was relict of
Edward Birch Lyon, a Michigan pioneer who came to Dundee, Mich.,
about 1832 from Sacket Harbor, N. Y. His record is given in Vol. I,
page 317. His father, Abel Lyon, was certainly a descendant of
Richard Lyon of Fairfield, and not improbably the Abel Lyon who
served in the Revolutionary war from Lanesboro, Mass. (No. 155),
or possibly a son of that Abel. The given name "Caleb Meeker"
of one of Abel's grand children points surely to Fairfield, Conn., as
the home of the family.

Page 378, line 3.— The date of Samuel's birth, Oct. 6, 1836, has
been accidentally omitted; his death occurred in 1905.

written by their descendants, Cosad, Cozad, Casad, Cosart, Cosard and
Cassatt. ,

preached many years in Pennsylvania. Daniel Doty returned to
New Jersey 1793-4, to bring thence hi's new bride, Elizabeth Crane;
he purchased a large tract of land in Butler Co., near the present

oldest child of Ezekiel and Phebe Crane. He married Eunice Dod,
born 1741-2, died Feb. 20, 1822, daughter of Thomas^ Dod [DanieP,
Daniel, Jr.-, DanieP] and Sarah Newoomb. The following record is
preserved in the Courthouse at Newark, N. J.: "On May 5, 1794, the
lands of Joseph Crane, deceased, in Newark, were divided between
Sarah, wife of Timothy Day, Jr., Phebe Crane and Rhoda Crane, min-
ors, said lands bounded north by the road and lands of Tabitha Wood§
and southeast and southward by lands of Ezekiel Crane [No. 84].
Silas Howell, Simeon Broadwell and Daniel Bruen, Commissioners."

Children of Joseph and Eunice (Dod) Crane:

I. Sarah; b. Sept. 27, 1773; d. Feb. 26, 1860; m. Sept. 27, 1792, Timothy
Day, Jr., b. Sept. 3, 1768; d. Dec. 31, 1843.

II. Phebe; b. about 1776-7.

III. Rhoda; b. about 1778-9.

It is likely that there were other children older than Sarah but not living
In 1794.

Page 115, No. 413. — ^Asher Lyon could not have been a son of
Aaron, iNo. 141, who was born 1769, since Asher's son Joseph, No. 728,
was born 1785. Neither does it seem very probable that Asher was a
grandson of Mattaniah, No. 52, born 1724, although that would not be
impossible. He might more easily have been grandson of Mattaniah,
No. 17, born not later than 1694, but there seems to be no reason for
believing this. It will be noticed that his wife's maiden name was
Smith, so that the unidentified Smith Lyon, born about 1790, who
married Jerusha Dean in Springfield, N. J., might easily have been
his son. As it is, the names of Asher Lyon, No. 413, his son Joseph,
No. 728 and his grandsons, Jacob L., No. 1219, John H., No. 1216 and
Philip E., No. 1221, should find place in the list of unidentified Lyons.

From Dr. Palmer Heath Lyon there have been received oppor-
tunely the following records of some of the descendants of David
Lyon, No. 178, whose children are given among the foregoing notes;
see page 375 of this volume.

464e. VI. 178. STEPHEN' LYON [David=, Nathaniel*, Capt.
Henry^ SamueP, Henry^] was born at Lyons, Somerset Co., N. J.,
Sept. 3, 1789, and died Sept. 10, 1873. He married, Aug. 25, 1811,
Nancy Hill, born Feb. 17, 1792, died Sept. 17, 1847, of Basking Ridge.
Compare record No. 2165 on p. 239 of Memorial, Conn, and N. J.
Families. One may surmise that that record really applies to this
Stephen, but with erroneous dates of birth and death of Nancy Hill.
The other items might all be true of this Stephen except the wife
Mary in 1818.
