#140 Lyon Cemetery

Posted on Updated on

Readyville Quadrangle 1 1/4 miles south of Cripple Creek and about 1/3 of a mile west of Cripple Creek Road. 

From Robert’s notes:  The Lyon cemetery began on the farm owned by Reverend Nathan J. Lyon and wife Henrietta Smoot Lyon with the death of their son, Gideon in 1840.  Many of their children and their spouses and grandchildren are buried here, along with neighbors from the area.  Rev. Lyon was a Cumberland Presbyterian Church minister who started several churches in the area.  The cemetery is located on a private farm owned by Kenneth Fox.  It is not accessible from the road and permission must be obtained before visiting.

-Teresa’s notes:  You can visit here as often as you’d like. 🙂

From Robert’s notes:  In October 2001, a group of descendants of Rev. Lyon began a restoration of the cemetery, as many stones were broken and down, or buried.  It is now fenced and many of the stones are standing again.  There are stones which need extensive repair and subsequent restoration projects will be needed to accomplish the job. 

During 2002, several tombstones were found and replaced within the fenced area.  These have been added to this list. 

Information about the family relationships comes from Robert as well.
