|Husband: Henry LYON
Death: 23 Mar 1707/8, at age 84, Newark, Essex Co., New Jersey Colony
Disposition: interred Old Burying Ground, Newark, Essex Co., NJ

Henry is said to have been born in Glen Lyon, Perthshire, Scotland, but I know of nothing to document this location — nor is there any historical evidence that any LYON ever lived in the Glen. The genetic connecton of Henry and Richard to William of Middlesex, England, then Roxbury, MA, suggests their origin is England, not Scotland.
WARNING: There is not a shred
of evidence identifying Henry's parents, only secondary sources.
