       Biographical note 
       Ministers, newspaper publishers. John Lyle was an elder of the Timber Ridge Presbyterian
        Church in Rockbridge County, Virginia. His sons, the Rev. John Lyle and Joel Reid Lyle came
        to Kentucky in the early 19th century. Joel Lyle had three sons, William, John and Joel
        Kenney Lyle; the latter married Maria Nourse. They were the parents of Lizzie, Helen and
        Charles Nourse Lyle. The Rev. John Lyle operated private schools in Bourbon County, Ky. and
        a printing shop in Paris in addition to his pastoral duties. He was active in the
        Presbyterian Church in Kentucky. Joel Reid Lyle taught in his brother's schools but resigned
        in 1809 to publish the  Western Citizen , a Paris newspaper. He
        retired in 1829, turning the paper over to his son, William. 
     
     
       Scope and Contents 
       The Lyle family papers (dated 1768-1944, undated; 8.3 cubic feet; 21 boxes) represent four
        generations of the family, which lived in Rockbridge County, Virginia and Bourbon County,
        Kentucky. The elder John Lyle is well represented through his correspondence in the
        collection. Papers relating to his son, the Rev. John Lyle, include his sermon on  Order  preached in opposition to the extravagancies which he
        perceived in the frontier revival, and a copy of the  Circular
          Letter  to the churches of the synod of Kentucky. There are letters between Joel
        Reid Lyle and his sons, William and John who attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and
        Joel Kenney who attended Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, and Princeton Theological
        Seminary. These letters (1825-1849) comment on events of the times, the Second Great
        Revival, the Campbell-Rice debates, the Bank of Kentucky, slavery, abolition, and troubles
        in Texas. Joel Kenney Lyle's papers (1842-1872) include correspondence, and records
        pertaining to his pastorates in Kentucky, sermons and notes. References to the Civil War are
        frequent. 
       Genealogical materials concerning both the Nourse and Lyle families were accumulated by
        Marie Nourse Lyle. Additional papers deal with Mrs. Lyle and her children. Among the Lyle
        papers are early indentures, day books, diaries, scrapbooks, and broadsides. Correspondents
        include Archibald Alexander of Princeton Theological Seminary, Robert Jefferson
        Breckinridge, Presbyterian historian Robert Davidson, textbook author and educator W. H.
        McGuffey, and religious historian William B. Sprague.
