Anna Lyons of Avon, NY was my great-grandmother. She married (as his 2nd wife) Charles McDonald of Seneca Falls NY and had 6-7 children with him, the youngest being my grandfather Robert Emmett McD. Charles died in Rochester in 1888 at age 60 when Emmett was 2 years old. Anna died about 1932 in Bridgeport CT where she resided with daughter Dora McD. Leary. Her parents are listed on the death certificate as Patrick Lyons and Bridget Moran. and I would be THRILLED to get any Lyons family data you have. All I know is that she had at least one sister who may have married a Dakin, as I found an obit for a Howard Dakin in my father's papers.
