The Lyman line is started with my maternal 5x great grandmother, Naomi Lyman. She married Caleb Weller in 1807.
She is the daughter of Abner and Hannah Lyman. I share a birthday with her, May 25th, albeit hers was in 1784 in Northampton, MA.
She gave birth to 5 children, all of whom lived to be adults. Two daughters: Lovice and Martha; three sons: Solomon, Roland, and Henry. It is not yet known when Caleb Weller passed, but he does not appear in a census after 1840 that I have found. All of her children were grown by this time.
- 1840 Naomi and Martha (based solely on female age) are listed in Northampton. Solomon by himself.
- 1850: Northampton; living with Roland, his wife Lucy, and Martha (listed as Eliza M).
- 1855: Mass Census: Northampton; living with Henry and Martha.
She would die in 1859 from dysentery and is buried in the Bridge Street Cemetery with Lovice, Solomon, Roland, and Martha.
I do not have any pictures of her nor have I completed any substantial research on her parents as of yet.
