I believe we share the same gr gr grandfather PATRICK LYONS. I am a descendent of his son JAMES LYONS. My records show Patrick Lyons married Mary or Maria Crien (sp?) from New York. Daugher Briget born in NY and James, John and Henry born in WI. There were 10 children, two of which died at ages 1 (Patrick) and age 5 (Catherine). James married Margaret Geelan in WI and families moved to McCook County, South Dakota by 1888. Patrick and James Lyons and Christopher Geelan (James father-in-law) have adjoining land patents in McCook County SD. James and Margaret had two children (Francis) and (Dale Edward), my grandfather. I too am trying to determine date Patrick immigrated to US. Would like to share information with you.
