Lewis Lyons, Jr. (1831-1926) and his wife, Mary Sparks (1834-1908). Lewis was an older brother of Matilda Lyons, who married James Henry (Jim Goins) Boggs. While not a Boggs himself, the picture is of interest not only because of the relationship, but also his unique beard and the coarseness of their clothes. Contributed by Robert Cunningham.
