On the LDS site, "[John, George or Richard Lynam bring up Anders [Anderson] Loinam Lynam, and Anders is traced back to Lionam Loinam, b. DE about 1650. I am beginning to think there may be proof that the Loinam's and Lynams were two branches of the Derbyshire England Lynam's (also on LDS site). One of those, John Lynam, b. c. 1640, was proto-Quaker (Quakers hadn't yet become Quakers), married Margaret Ridge (by this time they were both Quakers) and came as part of Penn's group to Philadelphia in about 1680. Both died there about 1700, and I think must be related but I can't quite make the evidentiary leap yet. Working on it. You and I separate at William Hall Lynam. I would guess that your William and my Andrew (b. 5 Jan 1759, Guilford Co., NC) were both children of Andrew Lynam (b. 2 Nov. 1720) and Sarah Hall, daughter of William Hall and Elizabeth Thankful Doak -- I have further back on both. Anyway, my Andrew (b. 1759) married married Elizabeth [Betsy] Greene, and they had Richard, my 3xG GF; Richard married Sarah [Sally] Hunt, and they had Richard Lee Hezekiah Hunt Lynam; Richard L.H.H. Lynam married Mary Jane Anderson [a first counsin through the Hunt's, and they had Sarah Ann [Sally] Lynam; Sarah Ann married Frank Collins [who is related to Rice's] and they had Edith Hester Collins. Edith Hester married Albert Orestes Andrews, and their ninth and last child is my father, another Albert Andrews. During all this they travelled through/to/near NC, VA, KY, MO, KS; they (most all were Quakers at some point and my particular branch ultimately became Methodists, apparently relatively late -- like 1900 or so. Have more on all of this if you are interested, and I am definitely interested in a full description of your info. Please email me, cousin?
