Aug 2012 11:58AM GMT Classification: Query You can find lots of information on the Lyon(s) family by going to Lyon(s) Families Association. They have publications that you may access or order. PLEASE JOIN! Their prices are very reasonable. The David Lyons in Barren County is a twin to my Joseph N. Lyons, both born 19 Aug.1759 in Morristown, NJ to Stephen Lyons who died in Mercer Co., Ky. My Joseph was in Barren Co. in 1810 then went back to Mercer and/or Clark Co., KY. was the father of Joseph N born ca 1798. When you go to the Lyon(s) website you need to know that we are descended from Henry Lyon profiled in "Lyon Memorial Vol. II. Hope this helps.
