Just back from Salt Lake City where with two weeks concentrated search I found Levi Lyman Sr, who died in New Milford, CT in 1799. Guardianship paper revealed that his son Levi, aged 15years, chose Adam Fairchild as his guardian. Levi Jr apparently left Adam still young and travelled to New York where he married Sarah Cornwall in Dutchess Co., ca 1804-05
Does anyone have any further info on this elusive Lyman Family? It is barely mentioned in Coleman's book as 'virutally unknown' Any help will be greatly appreciated!
