Your Lynam/Stidham (and variations)connection in Delaware is very common. I know of at least two marriages involving those two surnames. The stidham comes from the old Swedes of the colony New Sweden. There has been some debate over lynam/Loinam...I have seen where they are swedish. I'm descended from David Stidham Lynam born 1833, his parents were John Lynam and Lydia Brynberg Stidham. I haven't seen your Lynam, but doesn't mean that they aren't connected and that I won't run across the name in the future. If I find anything I'll let you know.
