Update, Noah, William & John Lyon (with the latter 2 being minors) located in Chester County South Carolina Equity File 26 of 1824. Father Elijah Lyon (born 1765 Amherst, VA died 1815 Chester Co., SC, court proceedings involving their mother Elizabeth Lewis Lyon Scaife (married William Scaife, MD in 1815) lists deceased father as Elijah Lyon. Boy, she didn't wear her widows weeds for long! Is this Elijah Lyon the son of Elijah or Elisha Lyon (a birth date for one or the other is 1720 to 1740. Died Oct 1, 1787 in Franklin Co., VA)? The wife is listed as Mary 'Polly' Bailey. The records interchange the names Elisha/Elijah. But they are not one and the same as they were brothers and the sons of Peter Lyon (1700-1764)and Margaret Lewis (died 1786. If you can verify that Elijah was the son of Elisha or ELijah Lyon who was the son of Peter please contact me. Thanks.
