Lyon Cemetery is owned by Town of Easton, maintained by the Cemetery Committee of Easton.

Cemetery History

The Lyon Cemetery was established in 1800 as a burial ground for the Lyon Family. As time went on, early settlers of the town of Easton were buried here, so now, you are able to see members of other families interred here. The most recent burial is that of Adeline Lyon, who died Nov. 16, 1881. A memorial headstone was placed here for Olius L. Lyon, who served as a Private in the Civil War. He is buried in an unmarked grave in North Carolina.

Lyon Cemetery has also been referred to as, "Rock House Cemetery".

As of this writing, the condition of the cemtery remains very good, grass neatly mowed, shrubs taken care of, most stones upright and standing.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
