Notes

  • Records report that Guy was born in Texas.  There are several Texasbirth records for several unnamed children ("Lynch, Infant of John")whose father was John Lynch or John H Lynch in different Texascounties in 1903-1906.  It appears the family was living in NavarroCounty about the time of Guy's birth.  The only such entry like thisfor Navarro County was 31 Oct 1903.  This is one day and one year offfrom the date given in family sources.  I have seen many instances ofone or more years differences between public and family records orgravestone dates.

    One or more family genealogy reports the birth date for Guy WatsonLynch as 30 Oct 1904.  But Guy's Masonic gravestone has only the year1903.

    John Henry's Draft Registration for WWI provides some additionalinformation.
    John Henry Lynch, residence Carnegie (Caddo), Oklahoma, born 21December 1874; Farmer, self-employed; Grey eyes, Brown hair; wifeSarah L Lynch; registration 12 September 1818, Cordell, WashitaCounty, Oklahoma

    In 1920, we find they have moved over into nearby Caddo County,Oklahoma.  They were there by 1918, when Buck Lynch tells me John andSallie continued farming but also opened up a cafe in Carnegie, whichthey ran until retirement in 1943.

    From the age and birth place of Jack we can tell they moved to Texasbetween 1932 and 1935.  The presence of Dorothy Fulbright as Guy'ssister-in-law gives us Juanita's maiden name, confirmed by Fulbrightgenealogies after this discovery.

    After they had been in the Houston area for the 1940 census, we findthem out in the west plains listed in the city directory for Midland,Texas, in 1948.

    Guy's gravestone placed by the Masons reports his birth year (no date)as 1903, while family sources report it as 30 Oct 1904.
