Subject: [LYON] BENNETT - LYON Family Photographs


> I've "rescued" a group of five photographs all belonging to the same family
> from Connecticut. Based on limited research I was able to gather
> information regarding the family and have included that information along
> with details of each of the photographs:
>
> 1. Jane Aurelia BENNETT SUTLIFF LYON, taken at the Gates Studio in
> Norwich, CT, likely taken in the 1880's with Jane appearing to be in her
> 30's at the time, notes "wife of Levi G. SUTLIFF who died 1880" and "wife of
> H. LYON 1899".
>
> Jane Aurelia S. BENNETT b. 27 Dec 1849 in Norwich, CT to parents Nathan &
> Abby J. BENNETT.
> Jane married Levi Granger SUFLIFF (b. 23 Jun 1845 in Bazetta, OH) on the
> 26th of Apr 1870 in CT.
> The couple had one daughter, Edith Granger SUTLIFF b. 20 Jun 1874 in
> Norwich, CT.
> Jane's second marriage was to Henry LYON (b. Feb 1832 in CT) whom she
> married in about 1898 in CT. I have a Charles Henry Lyon b. abt 1838 CT., RI or Canada; married Matilda McNickle before 1870 in Ct. Four known children: Jennie Sarah Lyon, (my Ggrandmother - married Frederick August Hahn), Emily Lyon, Henry Lyon, George H. Lyon all b. 1860's. His last entry in my files is 6-3-1880 census; not known died or divorced? Matilda went on to marry Edwin Collins, abt 1896. Could this Henry be Charles Henry?
