surname translation lyons in illinois

I am looking for the descendents of my grandfather's family. His last name was Lyons which is a translation of his Lebanese name. We used to say Syrian. He lived in Bloomington, Illinois as a child. He was married to Johanna Ulz. They lived in Gillespie, Illinois. His youngest sister Blanche had three children, one boy-Richard, and two girls. One of the girls was Maryann. My niece has a best friend who says that we are related. My mother was Lucille Lyons Corley. She married Richard Corley. I am her second child. I last saw or heard of these relatives when my Uncle Elmer and my grandfather Delmar Lyons passed away. I very much want to establish contact with them. My niece, the first family member of her generation in our family to show interest, is very interested in learning of her Lebanese ancestory.
