In Reply to: Re: CHICHESTER,BARNUM,DIRKSEN... by Bill Lyman of 1041

Of course I notice. I come from a long line of English perfectionists!! HA.
I have those ancestors you mentioned, their exact dates of birth,death and places of same. I have their marriage info and and descendant info from Amy Adelaide Lyman to me.
Albert F. Lyman and Mary Emma Barnum are (were) my Great Great Grandparents on my Father's side, as follows:
Samuel Lyman
B:Feb. 1772
M:Nov. 27, 1800
D:Apr. 11,1845
To: Wealthy Hartshorn
Child: Chester J. Lyman
B: 10.09.1801
M: 02.08.1826
D: 08.29.1874
Spouse:Ann Elizabeth Brown Mack
Then they had ten children! The seventh child being:
Albert F. Lyman
Spouse:Mary Emma Barnum
They had three children. All daughters namely:
Amy Adelaide Lyman
Caroline Ann Lyman
Ethel Mae Lyman

Amy Adelaide Lyman married Sylvester J. Sherman Chichester
and they had three children also. They were all girls too:
Edna Chichester
Flora Irene Chichester
Gladys Irvil Chichester

Gladys Irvil Chester married Edwin Dirksen and they had five children:
Garth Frederick Dirksen
Vivian Dirksen
Rolland Edwin Dirksen
Merlyn Myron Dirksen
Jack Darrell Dirksen

Garth F. Dirksen is my Father!

I have more dates and also places of birth, death, etc... but I figured not to bore you right away-ha.

If you want to exchange info, let me know- I have a wealth of information on this family and it's pioneer days and adventures! It's a very long line and took me over sixteen years to obtain the information I have! Lots of interviews with living relatives. This family seems to live well into their 90's and are sharp as tacks in the memory department as well as photography and letter writing saved!

Hope to hear from you soon. If you'd rather converse via email - feel free:
(the viking is from my husbands side-thornton/svendson)

Happy Hunting,
