These are from another project I’m working on. I have a big lot of photos I bought online, and after receiving them, it became clear that they belonged to two families. And it’s possible it’s just one family. I’ve identified two main family groups and am looking for a connection between them.

This is one group, all photos taken about 1942, probably in Illinois. If this is your family, please contact me. I would love to return the photos to you!

Jared, Esther, and Bill Lyon circa 1942
Jared Tyner Lyon (1902-1968) married Esther Harriet Anderson (1901-1969) in 1924. The boy is their son, who may still be living.

Viola Lyon circa 1942

Viola Susan Tyner (1872-1963) married William Edgar Lyon (1870-1926). I’m still trying to identify the young man in the last photo.

No Bar & Grill

No Bar and Grill

Believe it or not, there was a thriving punk scene in Muncie, Indiana, in the 1980s. The No Bar was all ages, so I spent a ridiculous amount of time there. (Found an old T-shirt while I was cleaning out my closet.)
