Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jun. 8, 1915
Centre County
Pennsylvania, USA

A grand old man passed from life to eternity on Tuesday at his home at Lyontown. About the middle of March he contracted a bad cold which developed into the grip and he had been ailing ever since, though his condition even on Tuesday was not considered serious, so that his death was quite sudden.
Shuman Nathaniel Lyon was a son of Samuel and Hannah Lyon and was born in Clarion county on May 2nd, 1834, hence was 81 years, 1 month and 6 days old. He came to this county when a boy and located at the old Hecla furnace, which was then in blast. When he grew to manhood he went into the charcoal operations, first as a wood chopper and later as a charcoal burner, following that occupations until operations ceased in Nittany valley. Later he purchased the small farm at Lyontown which has been his home for many years, and it is his associations there and his genial courteousness to all who knew him which will be lovingly remembered by a legion of friends.
He was one of the founders and leading supporters of the Weaver M. E. church and had been a trustee and steward for many years. He was a faithful follower of the doctrines of the bible and always practiced the golden rule. In politics he was a Democrat, and this paper lost a lifelong reader and staunch friend in his death.
Upwards of sixty years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Catherine Young who survives with five children, namely: Edward, of Elkorn, W. Va.; Mrs. Charles Johnstonbaugh, of Lyontown; William B., of Bellefonte; Franklin, of Mt. Carmel, and Harry, of Lyontown. One son died in infancy. He also leaves three brothers and one sister: Samuel, William and Albert Lyon, all of Lyontown, and Mrs. Emma Loneberger, of Williamsport.
Funeral services will be held in the Weaver M. E. church at one o'clock this (Friday) afternoon by Rev. J.H. McKechnie, pastor in charge, after which burial will be made in the Curtin cemetery.
