John Lyons snr and jnr,


 Looks like John jnr lost his parents at an early age and possible John snr also before 1930.
John jnr died 28.7.1960 at about 48 years of age. I wonder if he stayed single living with his aunt.

Thanks again Rosie, after years of stalemate this information is really moving me along.

Yes I would say John Junior seems to has lost his parent's at an early age ..Hard to tell if he married and a few deaths around for a John Lyons 1960 but just index ..What were the other family members you were looking for ?

Hello Rosie, Thank you for looking.    The other two brothers are,
Thomas Roger Lyons born circa 1881 who in 1960 was living in Fordyce Buildings, Clarksburg, West Virginia.  Believe  he had at least one son who. Might have same Christian name as his father. Donot know who or where Thomas Snr married , death date or emigration  details,  although after 1911. all I have is above which got from will details of his sister, Margaret Dooner in New York.

The other and final brother who emigrated  was Patrick Lyons born1883, also known as Pierce F. Lyons, who in 1960 was living. 634 Maryland Ave, Pittsburgh 32, PA.  He also left after 1911 census inIreland. they all seem to have left within a year or two of 1911.

Anything you could find   Particularly children born would be of great help.

Thank  you for giving me your time and help.

THomas R and Patrick(Pierce) Lyons.

Wow,

Both  Thomas and Patrick were missing from1911, everything fits. You  have, however, now thrown up some new mysteries. I do not know who the Uncle John mentioned is although I am assuming he must be a brother to the boys father Michael Lyons. Neither do I know who Mary Lyons is although I suppose she could be wife of  this John.  Likewise I do not know who Nellie is, perhaps wife of Patrick if he in the area at that time?

This is all amazing information Rosie,after years of nothing a glut of Info.

Many thanks.
