Biographical Sketch of E. H. Lyday

Was born in Grundy County, Missouri, in 1852, and came to this state with his father’s family, who settled near Honey Grove, in ’61. In ’66, Judge Lyday moved his family to Bonham, and here it was that E. H. Lyday received his education and prosecuted his study of the law. He was admitted to the bar in ’77, and has been in public ever since. He was four times elected Mayor of Bonham, and at the election in ’84 was elected Justice of the Bonham precinct.

Mr. Lyday is one of the “young democracy,” active in local politics, and universally liked. As a judicial officer, he has discharged his duties intelligently, and conscientiously.
