Cpl. Edward E. Lyon
I would like my great-great grandfather listed, he was Cpl. Edward E. Lyon, Corporal, U.S Army 6th Cavalry Troop C. He served in the Indian Wars, the Spanish American War, and the Boxer Rebellion.
He got married in Valentine, NE in 1894, while he was in the Army. He served from 1890-1910.
He also lived in Kilgore, NE sometime between 1911, as the Republican in Valentine on July 29, 1911 states that Mr. E.E Lyon of Kilgore made this office a business call last Saturday.
Mr. Lyon is buried in the Cemetary in Lander, Wy, as he moved to Hudson, Wy in about 1911.
He is listed in the muster rolls as a Connecticut man who served in the Spanish American War, as he was born in 1869 in Kesington, CT, and enlisted from there in 1890.
He is buried with a military marker that says " Cpl. U.S Army 6th Cavalry Troop C.
