Children of James3 Lyle Jr. and Martha Gray were as follows:

12. David3 Lyle (James2, James1) was born on 21 September 1841 in Elizabeth Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.634 He married Eliza Ann Davis, daughter of James H. and Elizabeth (Perkinson) Davis, on 10 December 1868 in Jefferson County, Indiana.635 He died on 2 October 1913 in Southeastern Hospital for the Insane, Madison, Jefferson County, Indiana, at age 72, cause hypostatic pneumonia with underlying senile dementia.636 He was buried on 3 October 1913 in Kent Cemetery, Republican Township, Jefferson County, Indiana, funeral arrangements through James O. Taff.637 His estate was probated from 4 October 1913 in Jefferson County, Indiana, when John M. Gray was appointed administrator of the estate.638 On 4 January 1914 the value of his estate was reported as real estate $11,062.50 and personal property $492.98, the latter to be divided among his sons James H. Lyle, Willard Lyle, Charles O. Lyle, daughter Annie M. Moore and granddaughter Bessie May Lyle.639
      He appeared on the census of 15 October 1850 in the household of John Lyle in Graham Township, Jefferson County, Indiana.640 He appeared on the census of 16 July 1860 in the household of James Lyle in Graham Township, Jefferson County, Indiana.641 He was listed as a laborer age 20 in the Militia Roll in 1862 in Graham Township, Jefferson County, Indiana.642 Civil War soldier He enlisted in the Union Army for one year on 4 February 1865 in Madison, Jefferson County, Indiana, as a private in Company I, 145th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, reported as a laborer, age 22, and resident of Republican Township.643 He was described as five foot, eleven inches tall with light complexion, hazel eyes and auburn hair.644 His enlistment entitled him to a $100 bounty which was paid in thirds.645 The 145th Indiana was mustered in at Indianapolis on 16 February 1865, each company recruited from a different county. The troops spent the 17th at Camp Carrington in Indianapolis where they drew their guns. On February 18 they left for the south arriving in Nashville, Tennessee, on the 21st. Next day they were off to Chattanooga from which they continued on the 23rd to nearby Dalton, Georgia. Rebel forces were little threat in northwest Georgia by that time, but skirmishes at Spring Place on February 27 and April 20 involved at least some of the 145th. Into the summer they guarded the rebuilding of northwestern Georgia’s rail lines and bridges such as one at Cartersville. They also had to escort wagons of provisions from end of the line locations. Their camps were in Dalton, Resaca, Cartersville and Marietta as they worked toward Atlanta. Though their “grub” was shipped to them, local produce must also have come to hand as in summer there was mention of blackberries and plums and sweet potatoes in the fall. With the end of the war many of the men looked for early discharge, especially once the rails were open to Atlanta. Closer to the truth were those who expected to be kept their full year’s enlistment. They did received furloughs home to see to their farms. David was marked present on all company muster rolls with no mention of furlough and perhaps as a single man whose brothers remained at home his presence in Indiana was not needed. By August they moved to southwest Georgia to the town of Cuthbert on an east-west rail line running west to Georgetown on the Chattahoochee River across from Eufaula, Alabama. Fortunately David was not one of the seventy enlisted men this regiment lost to disease.646 He mustered out of the Union Army on 21 January 1866 in Cuthbert, Randolph County, Georgia, then entitled to $19.19 in pay, having last been paid only through April of 1865, and to the last third of his bounty.647
      He appeared on the census of 6 July 1870 in Republican Township, Jefferson County, Indiana, with Eliza Ann Lyle, next to Elizabeth (Lyle) Hall.648 In 1876 David Lyle was a carpenter and joiner with a cooper shop and home on 80 acres in section 12, the same land originally patented by his Uncle William in Republican Township, Jefferson County, Indiana.649 He appeared on the census of 21 June 1880 in Republican Township, Jefferson County, Indiana, with Eliza Ann Lyle, Lillian A. Lyle, James Harvey Lyle, Willard Lyle, Charles Oliver Lyle, and Wallace Lyle, next to Elizabeth (Lyle) Hall and John T. Hall.650 David Lyle was the owner of a fairly average farm close to his aunt, Elizabeth (Lyle) Hall, and his Hall cousins, all listed in the agricultural census of 1880. His eighty acres were divided among forty-four acres of tilled land, six in meadows, hay fields and orchards, fifteen in woodland and another fifteen in other unimproved land. His land and buildings' value was $1500, farm equipment $100 and livestock $240. In 1879 he spent $64 on fertilizers, $100 in wages over 23 weeks and estimated the value of all farm products sold, consumed or on-hand at $1775 which may have included his business assets as well as the farm's. David had three horses and one mule. Production for 1879 came from dairy and other cattle, pigs, chickens and eggs, hay, corn, oats, wheat, beans, sorghum and forty apple trees. Fifteen cords of wood were cut.651 He was listed as a taxpayer on 100 acres, Kent in 1887 in Republican Township, Jefferson County, Indiana.652 By 1900 David Lyle increased his land holding to 200 acres including 120 adjoining acres owned by S. Sever in 1876.653 He and Eliza had eight children, six living in 1900.654 He appeared on the census of 4 June 1900 in Republican Township, Jefferson County, Indiana.655 He and Eliza Ann had eight children, four living (which does not account for Bessie May) in 1910.656 He appeared on the census of 25 April 1910 in Republican Township, Jefferson County, Indiana.657 He was widowed by the death of Eliza Ann Davis on 1 March 1912 in Republican Township, Jefferson County, Indiana, cause chronic gastritis of several months duration.658 He was under the care of F. F. Thompson, M.D. from 8 October 1912. As this was soon after the death of his wife, it may be when he was admitted to the hospital where he died almost one year later. Called Madison State Hospital since 1927 but popularly known as Cragmont, it opened in 1910 with twenty two-story cottages that provided patients with maximum exposure to fresh air and natural light.659

As a teenager he accompanied the growing family in moving on to Wapello County, Iowa.929 He appeared on the census of 28 August 1850 in the household of Charles Lyle in Wapello County, Iowa.930
     James O. Lyle "remained on the home farm [in Iowa] with his parents until twenty years of age, then taking up stage driving between Mount Pleasant and Oskaloosa, his employers being Frink & Walker of Chicago. He was thus employed until 1853. Then with a few thousand other fortune seekers he got the 'gold fever' and started to California with an ox team. The consideration of his passage was one hundred dollars, he in addition driving a team all the way, missing only one day during the five and a half months required to make the trip. In Fiddle Town, California, the tiresome journey terminated and here Mr. Lyle began mining, remaining thus engaged until April 1856. Then he took passage on the Golden Age, bound for Iowa, via the Panama route. Ill luck attended his journey. The Golden Age was wrecked two hundred miles from Panama on an island and here the hapless passengers lived for several days, scantily supplied with the necessities of life, until rescued by another vessel. After this narrow escape, Mr. Lyle proceeded to Iowa as best he could and arrived safely."931 He was assessed, based on a poll tax and no property ownership, 50 cents for the county and $2.00 for a road tax on poll and personal property in 1857 in Washington Township, Wapello County, Iowa.932 He appeared on the census of 28 June 1860 in Washington Township, Wapello County, Iowa, as James Lisle, age 28, born in Indiana [not correct], no occupation listed with Martha H. Snipes, Olive G. Lyle, and Charles E. Lyle.933 Olive may have been the daughter of his wife by a previous marriage and have been a Cossel not a Lyle.

The other two were Yakima City and Klickitat Creek. Mail was delivered to Klickitat Landing[a steamboat landing on the Columbia River at the mouth of the Klickitat River built about 1873] by river steamer.
     "Mr. Lyle was Postmaster for eight years and records in the court house at Goldendale show he was elected county commissioner in June 1870. In 1892 Mr. Lyle sold his ranch to Sir Thomas Balfour, a British Lord, of London, England. Mr. Lyle then purchased land at Camas Prairie and also many acres northwest of Lyle, north of Columbia Grange hall, where he lived for sometime before moving to Camas Prairie.

Turner.1047 She appeared on the census of 10 August 1870 in the household of Samuel Milton Wright in Washington Township, Wapello County, Iowa.1048 On 8 August 1871 Hannah E.

Lyle, their brother, who was killed at the Battle of Pleasant Hill in Louisiana on 9 Apr 1864 until Sarah's 16th birthday on 7 Jun 1870.

      Samuel Milton Wright was born on 30 April 1815 in Brown County, Ohio.1057 He died on 12 November 1880 in Washington Township, Wapello County, Iowa, at age 65.1058 He was buried on 13 November 1880 in IOOF Cemetery, Eldon, Wapello County, Iowa.1059 He was also known as Milton. He arrived in September 1830 in Fountain County, Indiana.1060 He came in 1840 to Des Moines County, Iowa.1061 He settled on 1 May 1843 in Wapello County, Iowa, one of the earliest settlers in the county when he was one of those responding to the opening of the "New Purchase."1062 He appeared on the census of 19 August 1850 in Wapello County, Iowa, in the household of Ashland merchant Thomas Ping as 33-year-old Samuel M. Wright, an Ohio-born clerk with $1000 in real estate. Listed before Samuel is Robert Wright, a farmer age 66 and born in Virginia. Following them are Elvira, age 19, born in Ohio and Amanda, age 17, born in Indiana. Perhaps these are Samuel's father and sisters.1063 He appeared on the Iowa state census of 1856 in Washington Township, Wapello County, Iowa, occupation clerk, checked as a native voter and as militia; also in the household were a 52 year old Thomas Crystal, farmer, and his wife.1064 He appeared on the census of 29 June 1860 in Washington Township, Wapello County, Iowa.1065 Civil War soldier He may have seen military service between 1861 and 1865.1066 He and Hannah E.

Children of Hannah E.3 Lyle and Samuel Milton Wright were as follows:

24. Sarah Ann Judson3 Lyle (Charles2, James1) was born on 7 June 1854 in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, Mary J. Hineline present. There is apparently no doubt of her date and place of birth, but the pension commissioners did not feel there was adequate proof of all the circumstances, perhaps questioning whether her parents were really Charles and Sarah Lyle.1115 She apparently married Abel Y. Marsh, son of Josiah Marsh and Leona Jane Bell, on 7 December 1871 in Klickitat County, Washington Territory, at the residence of James Lyle, Esq., witnessed by Mrs. R. D. Fleck and Mrs. C. E. Bunnell.1116 She probably died between 1886 and 1891, the years daughter Minnie was born and her husband remarried.

(Lyle) Turner to Jacob Allen for $85 on 13 January 1865 in Keokuk Township, Wapello County, Iowa.1119 Hannah E. Lyle was appointed guardian of minor sister Sarah A. J. Lyle on 3 April 1868 in Wapello County, Iowa, following the death of their sister Mary S. Turner.1120 She has not been located on the census of 1870. She appeared on the Washington Territorial census of 9 March 1871 in the household of James O. Lyle in Klickitat County, Washington Territory, as Sarah Lyle, age 17, unmarried, a domestic servant, born in Pennsylvania.1121 On 8 August 1871 Hannah E. Lyle apparently was calculated to receive $8 per month as guardian for the six plus years that her sister Sarah A. J. Lyle was the surviving minor sister of Joseph R. Lyle, their brother, who was killed at the Battle of Pleasant Hill in Louisiana on 9 Apr 1864 until Sarah's 16th birthday on 7 Jun 1870. The pension was evidently never paid though family and friends filed countless depositions trying to prove the case without convincing the commissioners of its validity.1122 She appeared on the census of 23 June 1880 in the household of Abel Y. Marsh in Dalles Precinct, Wasco County, Oregon, as his wife Sarah J. Marsh, age 26, born in Pennsylvania.1123 She may have been the mother of six children, three still living in 1900. One of the latter was Minnie E. Marsh who then lived with her aunt in Iowa but died three years later.1124

      Abel Y. Marsh was born in March 1849 in Iowa.1125 He married Mary E. Doyle on 19 May 1891 in Wasco County, Oregon.1126 He died on 11 August 1911 in Wasco County, Oregon, at age 62.1127 He was also known as A. Yomay. He appeared on the census of 25 September 1850 with Josiah Marsh in Wapello County, Iowa, as Able Y. Marsh, age 1, in the household of Josiah's probable father-in-law, blacksmith Samuel S. Bell.1128 He appeared on the census of 4 July 1860 in the household of Josiah Marsh in Dalles Precinct, Wasco County, Oregon.1129 He was listed as Abel, born in Iowa as was his 10 year old sister, but his six year old sister was born in Oregon implying the family had moved between 1850 and 1854. A neighbor was George R. Snipes, a relative of Mrs. James O. Lyle.1130 He appeared on the census of 24 June 1870 in the household of Leona Jane Marsh in West Dalles Precinct, Wasco County, Oregon.1131 He appeared on the census of 23 June 1880 in Dalles Precinct, Wasco County, Oregon.1132 Abel Y. Marsh purchased 301.34 acres in section 19, township 2N, range 13E from the land office in The Dalles, patent dated 11 April 1896, in Wasco County, Oregon.1133 He appeared on the census of 2 June 1900 in West Dalles Precinct, Wasco County, Oregon.1134 He was erroneously shown (in a question for women) to have eight children, 5 still living in 1900. This does not apply to his wife Mary, so may be all his children including two with his second wife.1135 Abel Y. Marsh purchased 40 acres in section 19, township 2N, range 13E from the land office in The Dalles, patent dated 15 January 1902, in Wasco County, Oregon.1136 He appeared on the census of 10 May 1910 in Hood River Road, West Dalles Precinct, Wasco County, Oregon, as a farmer with his wife, two sons and a hired man, his two married daughters living either side of him.1137 He was always a farmer and had hired hands living in the household, including Jack Ohlegschlager who apparently married his widow.1138 Abel’s will, written 11 July 1911, left half his personal property to his wife along with all household goods, jewelry and household equipment. The other half was to be shared equally among his four surviving children, Willie and Harold Marsh, Mrs. Effie Thornton and Mrs. Ina Fitzgerald. The inventory includes a good deal of farm equipment, nineteen cows, five heifers, one bull, one new automobile valued at $1600 and $8250 in notes. Real estate valued at $49,007.50 included the “Marsh home farm,” two pasture sites and the “Van Bibber farm.” His wife received a life interest in the land, and provided their sons remained with her on the land, a share of its income. The four children were to share the land subject to Mary’s life estate, the will requesting them all, if possible, to operate the land without dividing or disposing of any part of it, especially while his wife lived, and settle disputes in a friendly manner.1139
Children of Sarah Ann Judson3 Lyle and Abel Y. Marsh were as follows:

25. James3 Lyle (Samuel2, James1) was born on 29 September 1827 in Pennsylvania.1184 He married Louisa Graham, daughter of James R. and Mary (Brown) Graham, on 4 November 1852 in Meigs County, Ohio.1185 He died on 9 June 1908 in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio, at age 80, cause kidney trouble.1186 He was buried in McCaskey Cemetery, Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.1187

All but the youngest and oldest children attended school.1194 James Lyle was the owner of a moderate amount of land in the agricultural census of 1880. His farm was divided into 17 acres of tilled land, 40 in meadows, hay fields and orchards and 30 in woodland. His land and buildings' value was $1500, farm equipment $100 and livestock $300. He had two horses and two mules. Production for 1879 came from dairy and other cattle, sheep, pigs, chickens, other poultry and eggs, corn, wheat, a little sorghum, potatoes, 50 apple trees and wood cut from the forest.1195 He and Louisa had eight children, all living in 1900.1196 He appeared on the census of 8 June 1900 in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.1197 The cemetery marker is next to those of his parents.1198

      Louisa Graham was born on 22 April 1833 in Ohio.1199 She died on 22 December 1911 in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio, at age 78, cause pneumonia.1200 She was buried on 24 December 1911 in McCaskey Cemetery, Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.1201
      She probably appeared on the census of 1 June 1840 in the household of James R. Graham in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio, as the female age 5-10.1202 She appeared on the census of 5 September 1850 in the household of James R. Graham in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio, as 17 year old Louiza Graham who had attended school.1203 She appeared on the census of 8 August 1860 in the household of James Lyle in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.1204 She appeared on the census of 4 June 1870 in the household of James Lyle in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.1205 She appeared on the census of 16 June 1880 in the household of James Lyle in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.1206 She appeared on the census of 8 June 1900 in the household of James Lyle in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.1207 She appeared on the census of 29 April 1910 in the household of Charles E.

Children of James3 Lyle and Louisa Graham were as follows:

26. Isaac3 Lyle (Samuel2, James1) was born on 10 April 1830 in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.1368 He married first Elizabeth Jane Reynolds, daughter of James and Elizabeth (Guy) Reynolds, on 26 January 1857 in Gallia County, Ohio, Joseph Hunt, J.P., officiating.1369 He and Elizabeth Jane Reynolds were divorced on 9 November 1869 in Gallipolis, Gallia County, Ohio; Elizabeth Jane was granted custody of the children and Isaac was ordered to pay a lump sum alimony of $600 plus court costs.1370 He and Susan Herrod obtained a marriage license on 5 October 1874 in Jennings County, Indiana, which abuts Jefferson County where many of his relatives lived.1371 He married second Susan Herrod, daughter of Andrew H. and Mary Ann (Reynolds) Harrod, on 7 October 1874 in Jennings County, Indiana, Washington Malick officiating.1372 Isaac Lyle was divorced by Susan Harrod in Boone County, Arkansas, on 2 September 1880 and she was restored to her maiden name.1373 He died on 29 September 1911 in the soldiers' home near Santa Monica, Los Angeles County, California, at age 81, cause chronic endocarditis, secondary cause arterio sclerosis.1374 He was buried on 30 September 1911 in the Soldiers' Home cemetery, Los Angeles County, California (see postcard of Soldier's Home Cemtery about 1900) now the Los Angeles National Cemetery in Section 20, Row F, Site 18.1375

Isaac Lyle signature

Isaac Lyle
      He appeared on the census of 1 June 1830 in the household of Samuel C. Lyle in Elizabeth Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, as one of two males under five.1376 He appeared on the census of 1 June 1840 in the household of Samuel C. Lyle in Elizabeth Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, as one of two males age 10-15.1377 After the family’s 1843 move to Ohio, he appeared on the census of 31 August 1850 in the household of Samuel Lile in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio, as a nineteen-year-old engaged in farming.1378 He bought a 40 acre lot for $312.50 from Michael Conkel and his wife Mary Ann on 17 December 1853 in Meigs County, Ohio.1379 He of Salem Township bought a 40 acre lot for $350 from David Wright of Rutland on 15 September 1855 in Meigs County, Ohio.1380 He bought a seven acre lot for $150 from George Wright and his wife Elizabeth on 4 December 1855 in Meigs County, Ohio.1381 He appeared on the census of 8 August 1860 in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio, with household members Elizabeth Jane Lyle, Ashtabula Lyle, Emmet Lyle, Oliver Lyle, and Boyd Lyle, though the names in this enumeration are badly mangled. Isaac, a farmer, had real estate valued at $900 and personal at $400.1382
     Isaac Lyle was described as six feet, two inches tall; complexion, dark; color of eyes, brown; color of hair, dark on 22 January 1862.1383
     Civil War soldier He began military service on 22 January 1862 when he enlisted as a private in Company I, 53rd Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry in Salem Center, Meigs County, Ohio.1384 Recruits of the 53rd Ohio wintered just north of Jackson, Ohio, on the grounds of an old pig iron furnace. They traveled by rail to Portsmouth on 16 February 1862. The next day they took ship down the Ohio River to Paducah, Kentucky, arriving on 23 February. To set up camp they were directed by Gen. Sherman to "Go anywhere, it's all flat as a pancake and wet as a sponge." In March these Ohio "boys" received rifles, though not the "best" and loaded onto the steamer Anglo-Saxon down the Tennessee River. High and muddy from plentiful spring rains, the river's murky water was consumed despite its nickname of "soup." Predictably diseases resulted earning another nickname--"Tennessee quickstep."1385
     Reaching southern Tennessee on 20 March, they camped away from the river at a farm made famous as the Rea farm. Here the spring water seemed to increase the sickness.1386 Isaac, one of the many ill, was reported with chronic diarrhea and malarial fever on 1 April 1862 in Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee, Gen. Grant’s Army of the Tennessee headquarters.1387 As many as 250 patients in the 53rd (of about 1,000 men) remained in the tents of their camp on Sunday morning, 6 April 1862 when the unprepared Union Army was attacked. Isaac must have been one of those lying sick who fled to the rear rather than one of the fighting men whose retreats from battle made this regiment infamous in the Battle of Shiloh.1388
     On 8 May 1862 Isaac left Pittsburg Landing for the hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, though he was for a time considered deserted. He was back with his regiment from August 1862 through 30 June 1863, at the time of the Siege of Vicksburg, with hospitalizations 21 September–1 October 1862 from acute diarrhea and 2–4 May 1863 with scurvy. He was sick again in August 1863, hospitalized with remittent fever (probably malaria) in Black River, Mississippi, and sent home on furlough 27 August. A thirty-day furlough was extended by sick leave until his return on 20 December 1863. The rest of his service he was detailed to driving a team for the Fourth Division, which was renamed the Second Division in August, as was his brother Oliver. This included the Atlanta Campaign from May to September. Isaac was further hospitalized in northwest Georgia during June 1864 in Big Shanty (Kennesaw), at the General Hospital at Altona (Allatoona?) in July and again in July at Rome.1389 On 19 April 1863 Isaac Lyle and Elizabeth Jane Reynolds sold a 47 acre lot in Meigs County for $800 to David T. Harkins, the captain of his army company; Isaac's signature was notarized in Memphis, Shelby County, Tennesse on 29 Apr 1863.1390 He mustered out on 11 February 1865 in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio, his health never the same after Shiloh.1391
     His ill health during and after the war was summarized by his neighbor Eli J. Edmundson of Salem Center who remembered Isaac's return home from the army suffering from diarrhea about June 1862 and again in August or September of 1863. On the latter occasion Isaac also had a fever from which he recovered before returning to the army. After the war he had smallpox and could not work at all for a time. Later they did some fence work together, but Isaac had no strength or energy. When last Eli saw him, about 1875, Isaac "appeared to be ailing and not in the enjoyment of good health."1392 Isaac and Elizabeth Jane sold to Oliver Lyle their remaining forty acres in Meigs County, Ohio, for $900 on 24 March 1865.1393 Isaac paid Alvin Harding and his wife Jane $1,400 for a fifty-acre lot in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio, on 14 August 1865.1394 He bought this land near his wife's family, but it was not far from his own family in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio. In May of 1866 Isaac was accused of ongoing adultery with a local girl and according to Isaac, his wife and her friends mobbed and beat him and made threats to keep him away from his home.1395 In fear for his person he first stayed in Meigs County and then lived between 1866 and 1867 in Illinois according to his brother, Biddle Lyle, with whom Isaac later made his home in Rutland, Ohio, until around 1875.1396 Delayed by the divorce proceedings, an 1868 court judgement for debts to Biddle of $345.00 and costs and of $183.32 and costs to his brother Samuel Lyle was satisfied by the sale of Isaac's Gallia county land by sherrif's sale for $833.67 to his brother Biddle Lyle on 20 December 1869.1397 He saw his former land sold at a profit when Biddle Lyle and Sarah Jane McHaffie sold the 50 acre lot he bought from his brother Isaac at sheriff's sale to Bartlett Harding for $1,350 on 13 January 1870 in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.1398 He appeared on the census of 16 June 1870 in the household of his brother Oliver Lyle in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio, Oliver's land was worth $1200 and his personal property $625.1399
     Isaac Lyle lived between 1876 and 1878 in Indiana, apparently never returning to Ohio.1400 He lived between 1878 and 1883 in Newport, Arkansas, where he suffered ill health, at times confined to his bed, and was cared for by Samuel Campbell and wife until Samuel's death in 1881 and by the Timothy Tylers thereafter.1401 He may not be on the census of 1880, though his daughter Della appeared with the Samuel Campbell family in Union Twp., Jackson Co., Arkansas.1402 Isaac did not appear at the 1880 divorce hearing though he "had been duly and legally warned to appear." In his absence he was found guilty of such indignities as to render Susan's life "miserable and intolerable," her allegations found by the court to be sustained by the proof introduced. The marriage was dissolved; Susan was restored to her maiden name and required to pay court costs. It is odd that the decree does not mention their child Della who went with her father to Wisconsin.1403 He was admitted to the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, Northwestern Branch, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, on 3 July 1883; this West Milwaukee facility was planned during the Civil War, designed by Edward Townsend Mix, opened in 1867/8, with additions in 1875 and 1888.1404 (view drawing of historic soldier's home). He was described as age fifty-three, now only six feet tall with a light complexion when he went to the Milwaukee home. He claimed to be a widower and listed as his nearest relative his sister, Mrs. Hannah Jane McKnight, of Pomeroy, Ohio.1405 Eligibility for the homes included disability from sickness contracted in service and in practice was more liberally applied than the same criterion for pensions as in Isaac’s case he was still petitioning for pension coverage while living in the home.1406 He appeared on the special census of surviving veterans and widows of June 1890 in N. W. Branch National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, noting disability incurred of chronic diarrhea during service in 1863.1407 He was discharged on 13 October 1891 from the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, Northwestern Branch, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.1408 For some reason on 4 January 1892 Isaac Lyle transferred to the Pacific Branch that had opened in 1888 in Sawtelle, Los Angeles County, California.1409 He appeared on the census of 22 June 1900 in National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, Pacific Branch, Los Angeles County, California.1410 Residents of the soldiers' home were required to wear a blue uniform and Isaac could even be one of the men in a postcard photo showing a Memorial Day review at the Pacific Branch home around 1900. The homes provided a full range of services with work, recreation and medical care, but were very military in nature with reveille, mess call for the dining hall, uniforms and even courts martial. In southern California the home was initially removed from population centers, landscaped with abundant foliage with a view of the mountains and looks like a real haven.1411 He appeared on the census of 11 May 1910 in Malibu Township, Los Angeles County, California.1412 He received his last pension payment of $20 on 4 September 1911.1413 At his death Isaac had on hand $23.10 in cash and his personal effects were sold for ten cents, but the soldiers' home register does not tell how they disposed of this money.1414

      Elizabeth Jane Reynolds was born on 2 August 1835 in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.1415 She died on 19 February 1921 in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio, at age 85, cause arterio sclerosis of 2 years duration.1416 She was buried on 22 February 1921 in Gravel Hill Cemetery, Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.1417
      She probably appeared on the census of 1 June 1840 in the household of James Reynolds in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio, as the female under age 5.1418 She appeared on the census of 2 September 1850 in the household of James Reynolds in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.1419 She appeared on the census of 8 August 1860 in the household of Isaac Lyle in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.1420 When Elizabeth Jane filed for divorce after Isaac’s return to Ohio in 1869, she claimed she had needed to support the family with property he left behind, but there still remained two cows, five sheep, two beds, bedsteads and bedding, one cooking stove, one bureau, one cupboard and a quantity of other household and kitchen furniture of but very little value, plus $76.10 cash in the hands of the Court and the contested land on which she lived in Cheshire.1421 After their divorce, Elizabeth Jane was left to raise four children alone. At first she appeared on the census of 23 August 1870 in the household of her father James Reynolds in Vinton post office, Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.1422

She appeared on the census of 8 June 1880 in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio, age 43, widowed or divorced, keeping house, born in Ohio with her four children.1423 She was an heir of the estate of James Reynolds in 1882 in Gallia County, Ohio.1424 She appeared on the census of 23 June 1900 in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio, white female age 64, born Aug 1835 in Ohio, both parents born in Virginia, had 4 children, all living, living alone in home she owned.1425 She appeared on the census of 15 April 1910 in Kyger Road, Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio, female age 74 living alone, divorced, mother of four children, all living, born in Ohio, both parents in Virginia, no occupation, can read and write, this follows the family of a Roderick Reynolds age 60.1426 She appeared on the census of 2 January 1920 in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio, in the household of her son-in-law and daughter, Seth P. and Ashtabula Thomas, with whom she still lived at her death a year later.1427
. Some of her family and descendants believed that Isaac had abandoned her and the children not realizing there had been a divorce.1428 It is not clear that Elizabeth Jane fully understood her position when she filed a claim for one-half of Isaac’s pension on 16 November 1900 as the form explicitly asks if one is divorced and she entered “no.” She was aware that he was living in the soldiers' home near Santa Monica.1429 Isaac responded with a letter in bold strokes denouncing the claim and enclosing a copy of the decree of divorce from the Gallia County Clerk of Court.1430
Children of Isaac3 Lyle and Elizabeth Jane Reynolds were as follows:

     Susan Harrod was born circa 1851 in Kentucky.1532 Alexander L. Evans of Lead Hill and Susan R. Herod of Harrison obtained a marriage license on 14 June 1884 in Boone County, Arkansas, he was sixty-six and she was thirty-four. The pre-printed word "Miss" on the form before her hand-written name has a line through it.1533 She married second Alexander L. Evans on 19 June 1884 in Boone County, Arkansas, I. J. Micles, J.P., officiating.1534
     She appeared on the census of 9 June 1860 in the household of Andrew Herod at the City Jail and Poor House, Covington, Kenton County, Kentucky, where he was the jailor.1535 She was eight-year-old Susan Herod who attended school. She appeared on the census of 23 July 1870 in the household of Andrew H. Harrod in North Vernon, Center Township, Jennings County, Indiana, a butcher.1536 She was listed as Susan Harrod, age nineteen, born in Kentucky. She had an older sister named Aladelphia who was apparently also known as Della.1537 She appeared on the census of 17 June 1880 in the household of Andrew H. Herod in Harrison Township, Boone County, Arkansas, now a farmer.1538 She is listed in the census as a married daughter, Susan "Ligle", age twenty-five and boarding with her parents and brother, George W. Herod, several counties from her five-year-old daughter Della who is listed with the couple caring for Isaac Lyle. Ligle is undoubtedly a transcription error for Lyle.1539 She and Alexander L. Evans were not acknowledged as the parents of Alexander Lou Evans born on 17 January 1884 in Arkansas, the parents listed as Thomas C. Evans and Eliza Womac.1540 Alexander Evans was listed in the 1880 census as a blacksmith, only age fifty-three, with a wife, son and three step-children.1541
Children of Isaac3 Lyle and Susan Harrod were:

27. Hannah Jane3 Lyle (Samuel2, James1) was born on 22 March 1835 in Pennsylvania.1575 She married John McKnight, son of Thomas S.

As this was close to Chicago, he took his mother to visit the bustling downtown of what was then the second largest city in the United States. McKnight family lore records that Hannah Jane was somewhat overwhelmed and as they walked along the street, she said to her son, "Tommy, could we just step into this doorway and let the crowd go by?"1589 She appeared on the census of 30 April 1910 in Rutland Township, Meigs County, Ohio, enumerated with her were Lewis Elbert Entsminger and Carrie Belle McKnight.1590

31. Boyd3 Lyle (Samuel2, James1) was born on 23 July 1845 in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.2107 He married Jennie A. Whitman, daughter of George W.

W. J. Fulton of Rio Grande, conducting the funeral service, arrangements by J. G. Stewart & Son, undertakers in Middleport, Ohio.2110
He appeared on the census of 31 August 1850 in the household of Samuel Lile in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.2111 He appeared on the census of 8 August 1860 in the household of Isaac Lyle in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio; though the names in this enumeration are badly mangled. Isaac, a farmer, had real estate valued at $900 and personal at $400.2112 Civil War soldier He enlisted on 3 October 1861 in Meigs County, Ohio, as a private in Co. I of Capt. David T. Harkins, 53rd O.V.I., claiming to be 18 though he was only 16.2113 He was described as 5 feet 11 inches tall with a light complexion, brown eyes and hair at enlistment.2114 The 53rd Ohio wintered just north of Jackson, Ohio, traveled by rail to Portsmouth on 16 February 1862, and the next day took ship down the Ohio River to Paducah, Kentucky, arriving on 23 February. In March these Ohio “boys” received rifles, though not the “best,” and loaded onto the steamer Anglo-Saxon down the Tennessee River. High and muddy from plentiful spring rains, the river's murky water was consumed despite its nickname of “soup.” Predictably diseases resulted earning another nickname—“Tennessee quickstep.”.2115
     Reaching southern Tennessee on 20 March, they camped away from the river at a farm made famous as the Rea farm. Here the spring water seemed to increase the sickness.2116 His brother, Isaac, was among those stricken, but Boyd was apparently not so sick at that time as he was reported present on all muster rolls to October 1862.2117 On Sunday morning 6 April 1862 the unprepared Union Army was attacked with the 53rd Ohio on the front line. Boyd may have been one of the fighting men whose retreats from battle that day made this regiment infamous in the Battle of Shiloh.2118 He was ill with chills and fever and spent the fall of 1862 at the Regimental Hospital at Memphis, Tennessee where he took a severe cold. His legs and feet were very swollen. When his regiment was ordered away, he was left in a tent at the upper part of Fort Pickering with other sick. There he was lying on damp ground as he could not get up by himself and contracted ague as well.2119 He was discharged from military service on 2 January 1863 in General Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee, by reason of chronic diarrhea and repeated attacks of intermittent fever, having done very little duty since battle of Shiloh. It was hoped he would recover in change of climate and mode of living.2120 He was carried back to his tent after his discharge examination, waited about one week when he was helped onto a boat at Memphis and sent home.2121 He suffered palpitations of the heart and was so sick after his discharge that he was unable to work for about two years, using crutches to walk during that time and still unable to walk long distances afterward.2122 He appeared on the census of 17 June 1870 in Langsville post office, Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio; his father owned the farm, but Boyd had personal property valued at $280.2123 He filed for a disability pension on 7 June 1877 alleging that in the fall of 1862 he contracted chills and fever and while in the hospital at Memphis, Tennessee, took a severe cold, then rheumatism, gravel and diarrhea and while lying on damp ground at Fort Pickering, Tennessee, he contracted heart disease and rheumatism. The pension claim was based on the rheumatism, gravel and palpitations of the heart, but at first the claim was rejected.2124 signature of Boyd Lyle, 1877 He appeared on the census of 18 June 1880 in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio.2125 Boyd had a small farm near his father Samuel Lyle Sr. and his brothers Oliver and Samuel, all appearing in the agricultural census of 1880. The items listed look like what could be accomplished by Boyd's wife and children with the assistance of the hired help they had four weeks of the year, probably for tilling, harvesting and wood-cutting because Boyd's health would not allow him to do hard physical labor. He only owned seventeen acres, one in woodland and the rest tilled. The land and buildings' value was $300, farm equipment $200 and livestock $175. Production for 1879, valued at $250, came from dairy and other cattle, pigs, chickens and eggs, corn and potatoes plus sixty cords of wood valued at $100. They had just one horse.2126 Boyd Lyle bought from James Reynolds, former father-in-law of his brother Isaac, who was represented by Samuel Robinson as guardian, his land in section 35 for $2,150, the highest offer received on 31 August 1880 in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.2127 He was 6 feet, 2 inches tall at age 37, weighing 180 pounds at one of his many physical examinations on 16 May 1883 in Gallipolis, Gallia County, Ohio.2128 He eventually received a disability pension of $6/month dating from his discharge and with increased disability the amount was raised to $8 effective on 10 September 1884.2129 His pension jumped to $24 on 14 September 1887 because his heart disease left him unable to perform manual labor.2130 He appeared on the special census of surviving veterans and widows of 1890 in Kyger post office, Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.2131 Boyd Lyle of Kyger, Gallia County, Ohio, had his pension increased to $30 per month from 19 March 1890.2132 He hosted a box supper in September 1890 at his home for the benefit of Wesley Chapel which was nearby, its graveyard now known as the Van Zant Cemetery in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.2133

Jennie A. Whitman was born on 13 October 1849 in Jackson County, Ohio; parents Geo. Whitman and (?) Long.2134 She died on 17 March 1931 in 3053 Howey Rd., Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio, at age 81; cause cancer of stomach and liver (one year), metastatic for 3 months.2135 She was buried on 19 March 1931 in Poplar Ridge Cemetery, Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.2136 She was also known as Virginia.2137 She appeared on the census of 17 June 1870 in the household of Boyd Lyle in Langsville post office, Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio; his father owned the farm, but Boyd had personal property valued at $280.2138 She appeared on the census of 18 June 1880 in the household of Boyd Lyle in Salem Township, Meigs County, Ohio, as his wife Virginia.2139 By 1893 she reported that her husband Boyd was frequently so disabled that he had to stay indoors and at times required nursing and some one to feed him.2140 signature of Jessie A. Lyle, 1893 She was widowed by the death of Boyd Lyle on 2 February 1897 in Kyger, Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio.2141 She applied for a widow's pension on 19 February 1897, a monthly stipend of $12 granted along with $2 for her minor son, Leslie Vaughn Lyle, until he reached 16.2142 She appeared on the census of 2 June 1900 in Cheshire Township, Gallia County, Ohio; where she was head of a farm household with her two sons, widowed daughter and grandson.2143 She and Jessie L. Spires with Leland Boyd Spires moved in the fall of 1901 to Yellow Springs, Greene County, Ohio, from their home in Cheshire Township.2144 She was owner of a milinery store.2145 She appeared on the census of 20 May 1910 in 226 N. Main St., Ada, Hardin County, Ohio; as a sixty-year-old widow who had a millinery shop where she hired help and owned her home without mortgage but with a retired boarder.2146 Ada was the second small town to which Jennie moved, both with colleges, Antioch in Yellow Springs and Ohio Northern in Ada. Perhaps professors' wives were good millinery clients. Here she was near her niece, Mary E. (Lyle) Stevenson, but perhaps not close enough to be a reason. Stranger is that in 1910 her daughter was a milliner in Clayton, New Mexico, in the northeast corner of that state where Jessie lived with her son Leland.2147 She appeared on the census of 22 January 1920 in the household of Jessie L. King in 515 High Street, Pratt, Pratt County, Kansas, as her widowed mother Jennie Lyle.2148 Her pension amount was gradually increased to $30/month by 1928 when it was raised to $50 by an act of Congress on 24 May 1928. At that time she owned no property except a three-room house valued at $1,500 in which she only had $300 equity; had no income save her pension and at that age was disabled, unable to work.2149 She appeared on the census of 2 April 1930 in 3053 Howey Rd., Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio; an eighty year old widow enumerated alone in a house valued at $2,700 which she owned; she had a radio.2150

The well was down to a depth of about twenty-four feet and Mr. Donaldson was at the bottom digging and filling a bucket while his son was at the top hauling up the buckets as his father would fill them with dirt.
     "Suddenly the whole side of the well caved in, burying the unfortunate man under tons of clay. The young man was horror stricken, but immediately gave the alarm and the neighbors at once began the work of rescuing the unfortunate man who was buried alive under tons of earth.
     "After working for over two hours removing the dirt from the well the rescuing party came upon the dead body of Mr. Donaldson, which was horribly crushed and battered. Death must have been instantaneous.
     "The recent rains softened the earth and as the well was not braced the sides caved in."3301
