From a letter of Jospeh Ingersoll Turley about the Lyman family:
[Theodore Turley and Frances Amelia Kimberley’s daughter], Priscilla lived in retirement in Redlands; she married the Apostle Amasa Lyman and had at least three sons I met by him. The oldest, Theodore K., born in San Bernardino, was a big man, six feet two or three inches tall and heavy-set, very friendly and popular and had the largest Livery Stables in San Bernardino and owned the Stage Lines to the mountain resorts of beautiful Lake Arrowhead about a mile high and Big Bear Lake, about 6,500 feet above sea level, where they have deep snow in the wintertime.

Theodore Lyman, son of Mormon Apostle Amasa Mason Lyman and his sixth wife, Priscilla Turley, came to Lyon Creek in 1882. He was a widower with two children, Guy and Theodore, and his mother (widowed in 1877) accompanied him to take care of the children. He occupied the cabin built earlier for the Berrys. His name was given to the creek and later to the town, but he left by 1885.
