This book is a collection of the documents, pictures, and stories that my grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts and brothers found, researched, and saved. In this book I put the documents and pictures together in a chronological fashion and sprinkled some interpretations and stories. All of it enriches our understanding of where we came from, what decisions our relatives faced and how the hardships and joys in their lives made them the people they were---our ancestors, our PEOPLE!
Marge Lyon Humphrey- only one of many history buffs in the Lyon family. The trait of loving history has come from my relatives who worked hard to preserve their history with stories and documents.
