John Lytle, Jr., the grandfather of John N. and George Lytle, emigrated from the Susquehanna Valley to Waterford, Erie County, Pa., 1796, and soon became a prominent citizen of that new country. In 1802 he was elected to the Legislature by the five counties which then constituted that district. He was unfortunately killed in 1816 by his horse becoming unmanageable upon a bridge, throwing him upon the ice fifteen feet below.
