Thomas LYON
Huldah BURLINGAME
WARNING:  I believe a bad connection is being made here between our subject, Thomas LYON, and John LYON, grandson of Henry LYON of Newark, NJ.  Among other things, Elizabeth (RIGGS) LYON, wife of John, is much too old to be Thomas's mother.  The average women has her last child by the age of 43; Elizabeth would have been been in her 50's in the 1730's.
Husband:  Thomas LYON
Birth said to be:  ca. 1735 or "late 1730s"
Birth based on marriage date:  ca. 1737
Death said to be:  1805, Oxford, Chenango Co., NY

Father said to be, but cannot beJohn LYON, b. 1678
Mother said to be, but cannot beElizabeth RIGGS, b. 1679

Marriage:  25 Dec 1760, Cranston, Providence Co., RI
The average age at first marriage for a man is 23, for a woman 19.
Wife:  Huldah BURLINGAME
Birth said to be:  ca. 1742, Coventry, Kent Co., RI
Birth based on marriage date:  ca. 1741
Death:  21 Aug 1803, Oxford, Chenango Co., NY
Disposition:  buried Gregory Cemetery, Oxford, Chenango Co., NY
Father:  Daniel BURLINGAME
Mother:  Rose BRIGGS
Children:
Said to have had this child:
Thomas LYON, b. 1762, Susquehanna, PA, 
but, if so, how is it he ended up born in PA?

Said to have had this child:
Alexander LYON, b. 21 Apr 1776, Sandgate, Bennington Co., VT
but, if so, how is it he ended up born in Vermont?  The 1850 census does support his birth in VT.

2.  June Cioppettini, Lynda McGinnis, and Betty Cogliati, eds.  1999.  Henry Lyon of MA, CT, & NJ, and Some of His Lineage.  Lyon(s) Family Association of America, Belton, MO:
p. 23 59. Thomas LYON (20.John3, 4.Samuel2, 1.Henry1) b. late 1730s, m. 25 Dec 1760, in Cranston, Providence Co., RI, Huldah BURLINGAME, d. aft 1800, buried: Oxford, Chenango Co., NY.  Thomas LYON was born about 1735. The linkage of this person to John is weak and is speculated.  Lyon Memorial assumes that Thomas is a brother of John based on their marrying Burlingame sisters.  Lyon Memorial also states that "almost certain that the sons of Thomas removed from Rhode Island to Chenango Co., NY as did some of the sons of John.  At all events three Brothers, Samuel, Alexander and 'Major' Lyon in 1791 settled at Lyon Brook, Chenango Co and their descendants state that they came from Connecticut to RI."
Emphasis in red is mine.  If only they had not made this connection because people are accepting it.  The connection is not only "speculative," it's impossible.  As for assuming Thomas is a brother to "John" because both married BURLINGAME sisters, I don't disagree.  I do disagree that this Thomas and John are grandsons of Henry of Newark.
