JOHN J. LYELL
[Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun]
Haymarket, Va., Oct. 29 -- Mr. John J. Lyell, a resident of Prince William county, died at his beautiful home, "Sanoma," at 5:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Mr. Lyell had been a sufferer from Bright's disease for many years, being practically beyond all hope of recovery for the last few months, and was finally stricken with an attack of the heart. Mr. Lyell had been a resident of this locality only about four years, he having moved here from Richmond, Va., and bought his farm, "Sanoma," about two miles from this place, which he has since much improved and beautified.
