Searching for LYON family members in Botetourt and surrounding counties just before the Revolution. Botetourt County tithables for 1770-71 list a ROBERT LYON. I cannot seem to find other family members connected to him, and suspect he may be a connection to a Robert Lyon family in Caswell County, NC, later in the century. If anyone knows about this man or any other Lyon folks in the area at the time, I would love to hear about them. Many thanks,
