  • Mary's grandson Buck Linsten Lynch reports her name to me as Mary Molly Hall.  All the genealogies I have found have her name as Martha Hall.  Buck says this is an erroneous entry from an earlier report.  Her name as Mary Hall has been confirmed in Hall and Lynch sources.  Some sources have Molly as a middle name or in parentheses, indicating it is a nickname.  I also have taken it to be a nickname, since this is a common nickname for Mary.  She is listed as Mollie in the 1880 census.

    An anonymous genealogy of the Lynches reports that Martha (Mary/Mollie?) Hall was born in 1860 in Mt Pleasant, Titus County, Texas.  They seem to indicate that this date of birth is based on her age in the 1870 census.  I found her age in 1880 to be 22, which would mean born in 1858, which is the date I have used.

    In his RootsWeb -- genealogy of Carter-Cook-Rippetoe-Fields, Robert Stephen Carter has birth in Texas; but year is 1860:
    Martha Molly HALL, Birth: 1860 in Texas
    Death: 1888 in Navarro, Texas
    Burial: Blooming Grove, Navarro, Texas
    Father: Robert T. HALL b: ABT 1839 in Georgia
    Mother: Mary S. MCENTIRE b: 1836 in South Carolina
    Marriage to Grief Linsten LYNCH b: 6 Aug 1852 in Georgia
    Married: 1874 in Morris, Texas
    --  RootsWeb,

    Another family genealogy for the Amox (Mock) family (no longer online) also reported that Mary and Grief were married in Morris County.  We have not found that record, nor any record in other counties where the families had lived.  John Wardlow reports:
    "They didn't marry in Morris County. I have the marriage book from 1875-1941. Perhaps Titus County or Navarro County. I was hoping someone found a marriage record for Mollie Hall & Grief Lynch."
    --  John Wardlow, RootsWeb genealogy online note to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 4 January 2010

    In further correspondence on this question, John wrote:
    "Titus County marriages weren't online but I have access to the marriage index from 1895-1973. all records prior to 1895 in Titus county were destroyed in a fire at the courthouse.  Neighboring Morris, Camp, Cass, & Franklin county records are available. If the marriage took place in Titus County prior to 1895 we wont be able to find a record. I am assuming that it did since both Grief & Mollie were with their families in the 1870 Census of Titus County, Texas"

    No definite burial record has been found.  Buck Lynch has heard from a Hall family source that she was buried in Blooming Grove, Navarro County, Texas:
    "I can't find Mary Hall Lynch or Samuel L. Lynch records in Navarro or Henderson County court house.  Nothing but an old letter from a Hall woman saying Mary's grave is in Blooming Grove. ...  I am not sure if Mary died in 1888, that's what Hall people said."
    --  Buck Lynch, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 28 January 2008

    A genealogy for the Amox (Mock) family has reported Mollie's death in Dresden, with burial in Dresden Cemetery, while Buck reported she was buried in White Church Cemetery in Blooming Grove.  The Amock genealogy is no longer online for reference (4 January 2010).
