Thanks, Eva, for clearing this up. There is an Edwards web site, which has James M. Lynch married to Melinda Edwards. I knew this not to be true, but hard to prove, because wedding records before 1865, are difficult to come by. I believe that their other son, James Brantly Lynch did not live in Hi. Co., but in Perry Co. where he was a teacher at Friendship School & married Emma Barham. It is said that Jim & Sam's father, Aaron Lynch lived to be 102 yrs. old.
