Dear Linnie:
My initial comment should be edited. My great aunt (now deceased) speculated that our ancestor Ann Sophia Lynch was the daughter of Sarah Lynch whom she speculated married Archibald Runyon. Further research suggests that Ann Sophia Lynch is the daughter of Peter Lynch and Hester Ann Saffron. Nonetheless, my great aunt left me information she had written out from a book that was copyright 1936 by Douglas Summers Brown, mfg by J.B. Bell (sp?) Co., Inc., Lynchburg, Virginia. She didn't recall the name of the book. I tried googling it and found a title "A History of Lynchburg's Quakers and Their Meeting House" that fits that info. My great-aunt's notes begin with info about Michael and Margaret Clark sailing on the Glasgow in 1669 from Southhampton, England to Barbardos in the West Indies. Then info on their son Christopher Clark and wife Penelope Johnson Clark coming to Virginia in 1705; and then info on their descendants including Sarah Clark who married Charles Lynch; and then on their descendants including John Lynch (b 1740 d 1820) married Mary Bowles and their 11 children.
