In Reply to: Oliver Lyman 1744 Tuskett, N.S. by Patricia McGrady McConnell of 1041

I am a decendant of the Lymans in Sy. John New Brunswick. My great great grandmother was Eliza 'Anne Lyman and Married John Henry Doherty . They were born in Donegal or atleast John was and it was around 1838. Another Lyman was Rebecca who marred my Greatgrandfather. Seems funny, but this the information I got. Infact the Lyman name is n the graveyard with the Dohertys and the Stuarts in St. John West N.B. Canada. The little town of Tuskett N.S. is where my grandfather Alonzo John Doherty worked for sometime and my dad Dyson Doherty told me he was a little boy and he lived there with grampy Doherty. He said he remembered not having friend and he would make up some. I believe they worked in the mills. I will ask my cousin Jean when I go home for U.S. Thanksgiving. I will try to get more information from my family who still llive in the St. John "area. I was told that uncle Joe Lyman went to Virginia and started the Virginia tobacco plantation. I remember the name being on the back of the Virginia Slims and dad said it was a relation. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated
