HENRY LYONS, the oldest resident of the town of Barton,
died at his residence, Lockwood, on Tuesday, December 31st, 1889. He was
born in the town of Barton, September 5, 1797 and had never resided in any
other place. From early manhood, he was industrious and prudent, and in the
course of time succeeded in accumulating a nice property, so that in his
old age he had enough to provide himself with a comfortable living.
For the past twelve or fifteen years, he has been in declining health and
during the past five or six years has not attempted to transact any kind
He was a son of Justus LYONS, who came into this town from Orange county
nearly one hundred years ago. His mother (Anna BUCHANAN) was a first cousin
of James BUCHANAN, eighteenth president of the United States.
Mr. LYONS was three times married. His first wife was Paulina DEAN by whom
he had seven children: Justus C. LYONS, now living in Montana, Polly M. BROWN,
wife of Ezra BROWN, of Waverly, Cynthia, now deceased, who was the wife of
John TOZER, Cordelia T. GRAY, wife of James GRAY, Watkins, NY., Calista LYONS,

wife of Edward HYATT, now deceased, Joseph LYONS, Kansas, Victoria E, deceased,
John B. LYONS and Ella LYONS, Kansas.
His third wife was Mrs. Huldah THORP, who still survives him.
In politics, Mr. LYONS, was a Whig and in 1820 cast his first presidential
vote for the unsuccessful candidate, John Quincy Adams. When the Republican
party was organized, he became an enthusiastic member of it, and has constantly
stood by the watchword "Freedom and right against slavery and wrong".
In early life he held no fixed religious principles, but later he came to
look upon these things in a different light, and finally heartily embraced
the religion of the Gospel and attached himself to the Methodist Episcopal
church of which he died a member.
He was respected as a citizen and neighbor, and at the good old age of 92,
fell asleep to open his eyes on the realities of the state beyond the river.
His funeral was held from his late residence on Friday, and as his remains
were deposited in mother earth it was done with the full assurance that through
Grace his spirit had entered upon a life of perpetual joy and happiness.
