Lyman was born in Vermont and came from the Stoddard family that had been in New England since the 1600s. He was a Civil War veteran (service info included below). His father's name was Hezekiah Thompson Stoddard and mother was Eleanor Brown (who family lore said was a full-blooded native, but we have never found any further proof of this). Lyman married Rhoda Douglas in the 1860s in Vermont and a few children were born there before they headed to Colorado, where he was a miner. Eventually he and Rhoda parted ways, and Lyman ended up in the Bisbee, Arizona area -- mining there too. He also remarried, this time to Mary Lamb.
