Alexander Lyon was born in 1780 in Maryland. He had one son and seven daughters with Jane Moran between 1817 and 1836. He was a farmer and served in the War of 1812 as a private in the 5th Regiment Virginia Militia and died on August 3, 1863, in Virginia, having lived a long life of 83 years.
We are related to Alexander Lyon through his marriage to Jane Moran. Jane Moran we believe was the sister of Richard Moran who rode with Mosby during The Civil War. Richard is buried in the same cemetery as Alexander Lyon.
