  • thanks Nate, i hope some of his descendents see it. one son who stayed in Ireland, John, had 8 daughters so would not likely carry the Lydon name but i may have living relatives there. i visited the area last June and meet many Lydons and Coynes (my 2nd great grandparents names) but no one seemed to know back that far.
    i hope to connect with someone someday!
