From LDS site:
William Lyster married Lucinda Lloyd Aug 2, 1860

This is interesting:
California Death Index, 1940-1997

Sex: MALE
Birth Date: 5 Jul 1896
Birthplace: KANSAS
Death Date: 2 Nov 1955

This person doesnt match the dates for William Sharps family. Another Lyster must have married a Sharp.
