I'm researching my ggggrandfather Philip Mead, born circa 1813 in NY. He married (by age of only child) circa 1839 Rebecca Ann (unkn. maiden name). They had one known child, Laura J. Mead.
Philip lived in Galen, Wayne Co., NY on 1840 census. In Savannah, Wayne Co., NY on 1850. The family then migrated to Locke Twp., Ingham Co., MI and are listed there in 1860 and 1870 census. Philip and Rebecca died in 1877 and 1878 respectively. The are buried in the Bell Oak Cem. in Locke Twp., Ingham Co., MI.

Their dau. Laura J. Mead married John C. Lyon in 1865 MI. John was the son of Eli Lyon and Eli was supposedly (unproven) the son of Ezekial Lyon. The Lyon's were from neighboring Yates and Ontario Co., NY.
I have a locket with 2 tin type pictures in it. One side of locket has Laura J. Mead as a young woman and the other of an unnamed cousin.
Any help greatly appreciated. Philip is my brick wall on this line.
