Lyman Lawrence was a World War II veteran.  He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Reginald Lawrence of 20 River Street.

In 2010 Ron Lawrence, son of Lymie and Jane, shared a story  regarding his parents and a famous sporting event in 1956.  Lymie and Jane had tickets to game 5 of the 1956 World Series at Yankee Stadium when Don Larsen of the Yankees pitched the only perfect game in World Series history.  Since his parents had already gone to games 3 and 4 of the World Series they decided to skip game 5 since his mother wanted to go shopping.  Ron said his father was a huge sports fan but on that particular day shopping won out over baseball.
