Children of Edward Leo Lyman & Mary Miranda Callister Saw this picture here and realized it is a picture of my grandmother, Lydia Lyman and her siblings! My father, Richard Lyman Finlinson is the only remaining sibling in his family. Millie is actually Philomelia, Clara died at the age of 9, Rich is Alma Rich and Willis Jay married Angie Finlinson (first cousins, once removed)! Diane Finlinson Miller
Could anyone help us find Alma's children, to get some feedback on this quilt, we'd love to know more about them. email me at email@example.com
I found out who the blocks belong to, they are of Ruby who was married to Alma Rich Lyman, who was the son of Edward Leo, the son of Amasa and Lydia. Patricia and Lela were their older daughters.
"My mother Verda Carlile Dallon died Dec 2012 leaving me a 35 block (12"x12" block) that was put together in 1936-1937 in Boulder City, Nevada. Each block was emboradered with a signature, place of residence and dated by the person who's name was on the quilt block. Most of the signatures were members of the Boulder City L.D.S. Ward as I remembered them from livinging in Boulder City, Nevada. However, there are three blocks signed:" Patricia Lyman ""Lela Lyman Boulder City, NV."" Ruby Lyman Boulder City, NV"Their husbands must have worked on Boulder Dam some time 1932-1938 as the only people living in Boulder City were employed by the Contractor or the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. The Boulder City l.D.S. ward was not very large and mother worked in the Primary and Young Women's MIA. I suspect these three Lyman girls would be born 1908 to 1916. I do not know their husbands name or the girls maiden name. Since Dennis Lyman lives down the street I asked him if these names ran any bells and he was going to check and that is how I got you involved. If you can shed any light on them I would be greatful."
