    Notes 


    • Conny Green did some more sluething, and found a church record that disputes the material in the Lyman Gen, compiled by Coleman and published in NY 1872. The gen. indicates that Ruth Gaylord d. 1751, but the church record states that Moses Lyman married Sarah Gridley on 5 Feb 1739/40, (Southington, CT church). This indicates that Sarah would have been the mother of Lois Lyman along with Moses b. 1743, Sarah, 1745, Lois 1747, Hannah 1749, Noah 1751, Phinehas 1755 and anoather Sarah 1757.

  • Notes 


    • Moses Lyman was at the surrender of Burgoyne and in consideration of his services was honored with the duty of conveying the good news to Washington, who announced to the army, "Let every face brighten and every heart expand with grateful joy and praise to the Supreme Disposer of all events, who has granted us this signal success". He was on guard over the unfortunate André. His commissions are still in the family and he lived to the age of eighty-six.
