Lyman Thmpson, 1825-1910
 
From a farming community and partially handicaped in one arm due to some unfortunate accidents, young Lyman for an unknown reason drifted into horology and optometrics, his life's work in April of 1853 in Cherry Valley, N.Y.

Very little is known about his watches which at first glance appear to be Swiss; however, various parts were obtained from Waltham but the rest were reportedly hand made by Lyman. These watches are key wind, jewelled, and three quarter plate. A single example was reported by Major Chamberlain about 75 years ago but that example has long ago disappeared. I would date his movements around 1870ish.
