Children of James & Malinda Skelton Lynch were J.B. Lynch and Samuel Lynch. They lived in Hickman Co. at least thru 1880. I believe Samuel married Angeline Harbor. Were there any more children? Does any one know date of death for James & Malinda? They lived on old Amos Skelton homeplace. Does anyone know where the location would be today?

Do you know if Malinda Skelton was Amos & Charity Skelton's daughter? My grandmother made a note that Amos Skelton "moved to Hickman County and settled near the mouth of what has since been known as Skelton Hollow". My grandmother came from the line of Ruth T. Skelton which married James Harvey Hinson.

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.

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.

I don't know what happened to Malinda. I checked for a re-marriage in Hickman Co marriage index and could not find one for her. I hope this information helps.

Eva, In 1900 Hickman Co. Census, you have a James Chandler, Lorenzo, Jane Long & Anneta listed as living with James & Malinda Lynch. How were they connected to each other?
Thanks. Joyce Mayberry

Do any of you have any info on a John Broyles, whose middle name in some sources is listed as "Skelton", in any lineages from Davidson Co. Tenn. His mother was Adina Lynch whose line I am trying to track with little results so far, and father Samuel Broyles of the Germanna Broyles of Virginia. John was born in the 1880's, listed as a widower by 1910, and was plumber in St Louis, Missouri. Several of his sisters married into my Webb line that I am looking for also, Maggie to William Webb in 1886, and Mollie to Robert L. Webb in 1890, both males listed as deceased in 1900 census. Any info of great help. Thank you. Margot Malone
