Like his father before him he entered government service in a civilian capacity and for a time was employed in the Georgetown Customs Office. But like many young men he felt the spirit of adventure.3 He was found on a passenger list on 25 July 1923 he arrived on Ellis Island having sailed from Georgetown, Demerara, British Guiana. He travelled on the ship "S S Mayaro". The ship's manifest stated he was single and visiting Mrs H O Yearwood (his sister Stella) 173 Lynwood Street, Brooklyn, USA. He was five foot ten inches tall, with fair complexion, light brown hair and grey eyes. His doctor Dr Clavier from "Woodberry" 85 Murray Street, Georgetown, British Guiana wrote a letter which stated that "Mr L.H. Greathead was fit and you can issue him a ticket to New York" dated 7 June 1923. His passport was signed by the American Consulate at Georgetown on 9 July 1923. He soon obtained a job in the accountanting department of a large Insurance Company in New York.4 In the census of 2 April 1930 in 12 Vanderover Avenue, Howards Beach, Queens, New York, New Jersey, USA, he was listed as the brother in law of Howard Yearwood.5 He married Agnes Goodwillie Cameron, daughter of James Begbe Cameron and Georgina Hamilton, on 3 April 1938 in Elkton, Maryland, USA, Both Agnes and Lyndon were described as clerks and living in Richmond Hill, New York.

Upon his death this characteristic was acknowledged by a former neighbour from his Queen’s Village days, William Baird, a teacher at the Bronx High School of Science, who wrote a tribute, “The Most Unforgettable Character I Ever Met” and submitted it to the Reader’s Digest. Unfortunately it was never published.3,10
