Looking for descendants of the Lyon family...
My LYON ancestors had been American colonists who first settled in Connecticut then later New York but fled to CANADA after the Revolutionary War because they were United Empire Loyalists or "Tories" who favored the English Crown. Daniel LYON (1763 (CT)-?) and 2 other brothers settled in Storrington Township, Frontenac County, Ontario (near Kingston) on lands originally granted to them from the King of England. Daniel and wife Gift WATSON LYON had 6 children: Philander (1790(NY)-1857) who married Margaret FRIEL (1798-?), Oliver (1791(NY)-?) who married Elizabeth BUCK (1793-?), Lyman (1795(NY)-?) who married Rebecca WILLIAMS (1798-?), Nancy (1801-1884) who married Samuel AYKROYD (1797-1864), Henry (1808-?) and Seth W.1 (1799(NY)-1868).
