Obituary

Death of Edward F. Lyman

Word has been received by friends in town of the death of Edward F. Lyman of Mannaquan, N. J., on Wednesday, Oct. 1St, after a lingering illness of about four years, the last four months of which he was bedridden.

He was born on Royalton Hill, Jan. 7, 1847, the ninth child of a family of ten children of Jabez and Abigail Woodbury Lyman. His father was one of the early settlers of the town, removing here from Connecticut. He was a Civil war veteran, enlisting from this town. He was a railroad telegrapher by profession and for many years was a train dispatcher for the Pennsylvania railroad. The later years of his life he was station agent at Manasquan, N. J. He has always maintained an interest in the welfare of his native town and often visited here to renew his acquaintance and make new friends among the residents. He leaves three children, Edward, William and Louise Adelaide.
