I am trying to find any information on the Lyman family in Sheffield Twp. Ontario, Canada. My line is as follows:
1. JOHN1 LYMAN was born Abt. 1812 in Sheffield Township, and died September 24, 1889 in Kennebec Township. He
married MATILDA THOMPSON, daughter of WILLIAM THOMPSON and CORNELIA BARTLEY.

We have no idea who John's parents were or where they were from.
Notes for JOHN LYMAN: 1851 Sheffield Census :
John Lyman ( 39) Head       
Matilda Thompson (36) Wife       
Children:
Christopher (17) son       
Jane (15)
John Wesley (14)
Harriet (12)
Katherine (10)
Timothy (8)
Charlotte (5)
William Andrew (3)
Mary (1)

William Andrew married Margaret Victoria Detlor, their son William married Pheobe Lott and their son John Edward was my grandfather.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
