Hi KIM I have been researching the Lyman's from Canada, My great great -grandfather was Oliver Lyman. he was born in Tuskett, N.S in 1788. He was married twice. The first time to Ann Patton(en) in St John, N.B. and the second time to Ellen McGivery also in St. John. He had 10 children between the 2 wives. My gr-grandfather was James Peter Lyman, born in St John. As far as I can tell the family lived in St John until about 1890 when they came to the Salem, Ma area. If this connects to who you have been researching I would like more info, especially from N.S.
