The photograph shown at left was found online in an Ancestry.com family tree and I DO NOT have that one in my possession. But I show it here for comparison. This photo is said to be identified as the wedding of Edwin C. Lyon and Carrie Victoria Anthony. Also in the photo is Carrie's sister Cora Anthony and her future husband. The priest at right has his eyes closed due to the camera flash. The image is rather blurry, but one can see that the wedding couple's clothing is very similar. Carrie may have her sleeves rolled up (or removed) in the seated version.
Edwin Clarke Lyon (b. 27 Sep 1877) is a son of Hervy Lyon (1836-1927) and Louisa J. Handshy/Handsley? (1846-1895). In 1907, he married a school teacher Carrie V. Anthony (1884-1934) whose parents are not known but reported by Carrie on the 1920 Census as being born in NY.
Edwin registered for the WWI Draft, stating his occupation was "pipe-fitter for Boyne City Chemical Company." At some point Edwin and Carrie moved to Memphis Tennessee where he continues to work in the Chemical industry.
