Lyon Family Cemetery


The Lyon Family Cemetery (next to 3rd green, Brambleton Regional Park and Golf Course, Ryan Road) has gravesites for Lyon, Shryock, Moran, Edwards and Dove family members. There's good news and bad news about the cemetery's location. The fact is that it still exists and has been preserved even though the Brambleton Regional Park and Golf Course was constructed in 1994 on the old farmland. However, it's in a fairly run-down condition and has not been maintained well. Images were taken in 2000.
