Thomas Lyons family, Fayette Co. census of 1880
Posted by: Linda Pearson (ID *****8203) Date: August 17, 2003 at 16:51:58

I am hoping someone can help me with a brick wall. I have been searching for my husband's great grandfather for about 4 years with no luck........basically, a needle in a hay stack. No one who is still living knows his name. I did have several names of his children and some of them match a family in the Fayette County census of 1880. According to this census posted on the LDS site, Thomas Lyons and wife, Rebecca, had five children at that time:

Nannie B., age 9
Sallie M., age 7
William T., age 5
James D., age 2
John R., age 1

My mother-in-law is now 80 years of age. Her father was Lewis Lyons from Alabama. She remembers him having a brother William T., a brother Jim, and a sister named Nannie Belle. Lewis was born in January, 1883, so wasn't around for this census.

Does anyone have this family in their tree? Do anyone have the names of any other children?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Linda
