Lyon Family Genealogy

This Lyon family consists of two Lyon branches that married into one. What is a bit confusing is that, although they were different individuals, the earliest known ancestor for each branch had the same name - Joseph Lyon. The Joseph Lyon from the first branch had a daughter named Betsey Lyon. She married Elijah Lyon, the son of the Joseph Lyon from the second branch. It was Betsey's second marriage. Elijah may have been a cousin, or not related at all. Lyon was a very common surname at the time, especially in Essex County, New Jersey. This is the only reference found for Elijah's parents. All census information indicates that both families are from New Jersey.
