Notes for Joshua W. LYNCH
St. Mary’s Cty Court Equity Papers show Joshua in 1832 battle over estate of Thomas Lynch, Sr. against Thomas Lynch, Jr. Also involved were Catherine L., Kenelm B.W. L., Rebecca Freeman, Thomas Freeman, Eliz. Burford, and McKelvie Hammette.

Joshua and Annie moved to Ohio shortly after their marriage, where they lived for 15 years before moving to Daviess County in 1839. They appear on tax records for Licking County, Ohio for 1826-1829 and in Hopewell Township in Licking County 1830-1836. Joshua had 91.65 acres of land. Records show he made payments on the cost of $103.10 from May of 1829 to 1834. (By comparison, a cow costs $5.)

Joshua bought 160 acres in Daviess County in 1839. Familiy legend says they came by covered wagon, and stories of the time indicate there were few residents or institutions of any kind. They paid $600 for the land, and sold it two years later for the same sum, but had to bring suit to collect on the purchase price. They also received two land grants, for 80 acres each, in 1843 and 1878.

Notes for Ann Tea
Family legend says she was an Indian woman orignally named “Tea.” [756] The new Lynch book says “Darth Miller has found her parents in Maryland.” [789]

Annie’s granddaughter tells stories that Annie smoked a pipe and would blow smoke in her ears when she had an earace. When they lived in Ohio, they would sleep away from the house to avoid Indians. She would take dirt in a sieve and walk backward and use the dirt to cover their tracks. The granddaugther’s granddaugther now has a set of tongs that Annie used to get hot coals into her pipe. [789]

Son John’s death certificate gives parents as Joshua Lynch b. MD and Anna Tea b. VT.
