Lyons Church 1876

This is the original Lyons Christian Church on E. Morenci Street in Lyons.    The church was built by E. C. Daniels in 1876 and burned to the ground in 1924.    The brick church was built on the same site and still stands today.

E. C. (Enos Chapin) Daniels is my maternal ggg grandfather. He was the father of Ellen T. [Daniels] Wood, grandfather of Lue L. Wood, gr grandfather of Carl L., Wood and gr gr grandfather of Lela Mae [Wood] Marlatt.

(Received this email and and some 19 photos from Bob Duckett who now lives in Florida. In the last 50 some years, Bob has played in a number of groups. He is asking for photos of the group in which he and the Finfera brothers played from 1963 to 1965. If you can help him out, please send the photo or a scan of it to me at corpmiz@aol.com.)

Hey Charlie,
I hope you are doing well-look forward to seeing you in May. I am trying to find a picture of my earliest band with Rudy and Roger Finfera from 1963 thru 65-we played at the Coliseum in Swanton, Mann's Corners Skating Rink, various WTOD record hops and at the Devils Lake Pavilion. Do you remember seeing any pictures of us?? If anybody has one it would be you-I would like to add it to my collection.

Just a short note-I'll talk to you soon.

THE TRADING POST



(Photo submitted by Helen Peebles; June 14, 2011)

     If you would send me your memories of The Trading Post, corpmiz@aol.com, I'll post them just below this photo. Does anyone know who first founded a store at this location, and what the ownership history was?

(June 18, 2011)
     My parents Clare and Dortha Rowland purchased the Trading Post from Fillingers in about 44 during the war. Had a little grocery store on the side. To get 100 #'s of potatoes had to take 100 #'s of cabbage, Cigarettes and gas was rationed . I was a Jr in high school. In 45 Lyons had a winning basket ball team and never lost a game. Before their last game my dad told the boys he would put on a steak supper if they won them all and they did and we served the boys and coach their steak supper. Lost out at the tournament though but we were very proud of them.

     The Trading Post sold at auction and Harold and I bought it From Morels and Shaws in 64. When I phoned my mom to tell her she said " Oh no !!! So much work" She was right but we enjoyed every minute of it. Lots of business and served lots of food as my parents had.. Penny and David were in school and were a big help to us but they thought it was lots of work too but enjoyed their friends dropping in. Lots of good memories go with the Trading Post..
