I got Lyman's journal out & enjoyed rereading it after all these years. It is from 6/24/1903-11/31/1904. It doesn't state it as so but in context there probably was a brother named Delbert. Same type of context Showed Pat (no other name). April 29,1904 a brother Frank was killed. Zula was the youngest in the family. Uncle Lyman hadn't married Aunt Nellie when he wrote this. He did "homestead" land in SD during this time. Aunt Nellie used to tell of picking up buffalo chips for fuel. The last time I visited Aunt Nellie she was in the"Grace Pyle Home" in Huron. It was a very long time ago so I can't be positive about the name. She was a joy to know.
I couldn't find the "tree". Dad is going to look at his place. As I said when I saw it years ago there were too many gaps to mean anything. When we find it I can also send you anything that might be pertinent. When I can make time I can scan Lymans diary and send it to you if it is readable. For someone who taught penmanship it sure is hard reading & of course was written almost a century ago. It's 80 pages long.
