Yes, Melinda Skelton was wife of James Lynch. They called her "Lynn". Her sister Sarah married David Lynch. There is a false conception that the Melinda who married James Lynch was an Edwards. This is not true. Amos Skelton deeded James & Melinda 100 acres before he died. James & Melinda received the homeplace of Amos Skelton after he died in 1878. Amos & Charity Reeves Skelton had 15 children, 7 had died by the time Amos died in Hi. Co. They called it Skelton Holler or Skelton town.
