Here’s what my research has told me:
Of William Albert Lyon’s children, their first was William George, presumably your great grandfather. Their last child was Victor Norman b. 1879. Victor married Irene Luoise Williams and had probably three children, one of which was Jeanne Phyllis b. 1907. She went by the name Phyllis. Phyllis married Ross Caulie Sillers whom I knew as Caullie. He was a manager of the Bank of Nova Scotia stationed in Peurto Rico and born in River John, Nova Scotia. They had a child in Peurto Rica, Jim. Jim had three children, Brian, Michael and Louise, all of which live near me.
After moving back to Phyllis’ ancestral stomping grounds, East End Toronto, they had a daughter, Irene. Irene married Robert Adamson and moved to Utah. They have three children, Robert, John and Jill all of whom currently live in Washington State.
Their third child, John Sherman, is my adoptive father. He had a son with my mother (her second marriage) named Sean. We all still live in the same neighbourhood ehich is near St. John’s Norway which you mentioned in an earlier post.
I’d love to here from you and swap stories and information. How can we get in touch privately? I have lots of research to do and have lots of information already. My father might even remember your great grandfather.
