We are doing a family history and have found that we are related to a branch of the Lyman family from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
We know John Lyman married Hannah Ott on September 17, 1797 and they resided in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Stark County, Ohio and Iroquois, Illinois. They were the parents of sixteen children. We come through their daughter, Margaret (Peggy) Lyman.
If anyone has a history, or knows of a place that I could find historical information on this family, I would be very grateful if you could share with me.
