Individual Note:
     Tennessee on his father's farm. He attended school held in the Walnut Grove Baptist Church which was the closest to him. Jim married Mary Liddie ”Duck” Scalf in Carter Co. on June 3, 1911.
They resided early in their marriage for periods of time in Washington Co., VA, Johnson City, TN, near Bluff City, TN and eventually moved to a farm they purchased in the Bunker Hill community which was partially in Carter Co. and in Sullivan Co. Their first home was located in Carter Co and the house was later moved then expanded sitting directly across the road from Mary’s parents’ Isaac Scalf family farm on Bunker Hill Road in Sullivan Co. where her brother McKinley “Ken” Scalf and wife Alma Walker lived until their deaths.
Jim worked for the railroad, the brick yard in Johnson City where he lost an eye in the late 1920s, drove a taxi in Elizabethton in the 1940s and was a burley tobacco farmer. His WWI draft registration card recorded on June 5, 1917 states his name as James A. Lyon, age 28 of Bluff City, Sullivan Co., TN born Jan. 26. 1889 as a self-employed farmer with a wife & child and described as medium heighth, slender build, blues eyes and light colored hair. The card is signed James A. Lyons and Ollie F. Glover, Registrar.
He was gentle, kind man who had a stocky build with brown hair and blue eyes. In the 1930s, Jim was diagnosed with mouth cancer and underwent treatments with Dr. Walter Hankins of Johnson City and recovered. Jim is remembered for his quick wit and keen sense of humor. One summer, his grandsons teased him for driving a Ford as they drove Chervolet brand. In the 1960s, a gas station was giving plastic magnetic horse shoes away with a fill-up using the catch phrase “Put a kick in your tank”. Jim’s grandson, Rickey Sams, came to Grandpa’s house with the horseshoes on the trunk of his Chevy and asked himwhat he thought of them. Jim replied, “Rickey, it looks like a Mustang kicked you in the butt.” Everyone burst out laughing much to Jim’s delight as a Mustang is a Ford product.
Jim and Mary were members of the Bunker Hill Christian Church .
Jim died of pneumonia in the Carter County Memorial Hospital in Elizabethton on May 2, 1971 after falling down a flight of stairs several months earlier due to a stroke which left him a paralyzed. His funeral was held on Tuesday, May 4, 1971 at 2:00pm and burial followed in Jones Cemetery, Sullivan County, TN (marker picture available).
