WILLIAMSBURG, October 3.

By Lieutenant Lyon, who arrived here last Tuesday from Fort
Du Quesne, upon the Ohio (whither he was sent by Colonel Innes
with a Flag of Truce, and which Place he left the 20th of last
Month) we are advised, that at that Time, the whole Force of
the French at that Fort, did not exceed 100 Men, and those very
indifferently supplied with Provisions, &c. His chief Business
there was to propose to the French Commander an Exchange of
Monsieur Druillon, and the two Cadets, for Messieurs Stobo and
Van Braam, which would not be accepted of, on which Account Mr.
Stobo was ordered away for Montreal the Day Lieutenant Lyon
left the Fort.

Memories of Carlisle's Old Graveyard

"In pursuance of the Honorable the proprietary's warrant bearing date the 6th day of Feby, 1767, there was surveyed for John Montgomery, Robert Miller, William Lyon, John McKnight, Thomas Donnelan, and William Miller in Trust for the Inhabitants in & about the town of Carlisle a lot of ground for a Graveyard or Burying place situate on the South side of the Sd. town beginning at a marked post sixty feet distant from the South End of Bedford Street opposite to the East side thereof, thence extending on the same direction as Sd. Street S 10 degrees W 25 Ps. to a Post Thence N 80 degrees W. 25 Ps. to a Post, thence N 10 degrees 25 Ps to a Post, thence by the South Street of the said town of Carlisle S. 80 degrees E. 25 Ps. to the Place of Beginning containing three acres, three rods, Twenty-five perches as appears by the above Draught.

John Armstrong
To John Lukens, Esq. D. S.
Surveyor General."

Of the names on this patent, John Armstrong and William Lyon have stones in this graveyard. Undoubtedly the others were buried here, but their stones like many others have long since disappeared. On the First Church patent we will find some of these same names. If the patents of the Episcopal Church, Market House and Court House could be examined some of the same names would doubtless appear in their lists. [lyon3-dprkrnfl.ged]
