The information below is from Sandi Hartnell, (email@example.com) who says "Most of the early stuff was compiled by my grandmother's twin sister, Mina Lyon Rife. She dated the material 1956. She did a lot of research, and attributed some of the material from a 3 volumes titled "Lyon Memorial". She indicated they were purchased in Boston at Goodspeed Book Store. I visited Glamis Castle about 10 years ago and have guidebooks from there that had family information, and I also picked up some information from various web sites. "
