Lynch, John

  • Born: 7 Nov 1856, Guelph, , ON, CAN

bullet  General Notes:

Thomas and Ellen's third child, John, was born 7 Nov 1856. He was baptized the same day and John Lynch and Catherine Whelan were his godparents. The story goes that he was chopping wood with an axe one day and his father showed him the safe way to chop so he would not hurt himself. When his father left, he went back to his old way and before too long, he split his foot open. He was so ashamed that he left home and was not heard of for years until one day he appeared at his sister Margaret Ann's home in Walla Walla. She had no idea who this stranger was until he asked for a special kind of cookie like their mother used to bake. When his father died in 1903 and his mother in 1922, John is listed in the obituaries as living in Vancouver and was reported to be a policeman. He married a girl named Marie, had no family and died in Seattle, Washington 18 Jan 1938 from heart trouble which had been bothering him for two years. It is not known when he moved to Seattle but at the time of his death his home address was 1710 East Columbia Street. He was buried from the Church of the Immaculate, 18th Avenue and Marion Street 21 Jan to Calvary Cemetery and his wife asked the Parish Priest, Rev. L.P. Conway, to notify his family by letter.

bullet  Marriage Notes:

John married Marie.
