    Seeking relatives of Monsignor Edward Alloysius Lyons

    Maureen Graybill Newbie

      I'm interested in locating relatives of Monsignor Edward Alloysius Lyons, April, 1888 -- Feb 25, 1966.  I believe that his father (John Lyons) was my Great-Grand Uncle. Family lore has it that my great-grandmother (Annie/Anna Maria Lyons) came to America from Ireland with her two siblings (Bridget and John Lyons), and their mother (Mary Kieley Lyons).  (Their father. Bernard/Brian Lyons, had preceded them to America.)  Both Mary and John died, and the children were separated:  John was taken in by a grocer and his wife in Philadelphia.  I am trying to locate information about my great-grandmother Annie O'Donnell nee Lyons, and would appreciate communicating with relatives of Msgr. Lyons, who likely know more family history than I do.
