I am not sure if they were divorced or not. There seems to be some mystery about that. Tim

A researcher that came in my genealogy library has a George Saunders as an ancestor. On his Civil War pension papers, it says his parents were Harriet Lyman & Flavel--that is what the researcher said. Harriet Lyman is living with George in the 1880 census in Palmer, MA. Flavel Lyman is living witha nephew in Andover, CT. George died in Springfield, MA.

I believe that I have been in contact with the same lady. I was not sure so could not answer her question on this. It is possible that they were divorced but I have no proof of that. I wish I had more to go on. Please let me know if more is found to support this finding. Tim
