Dynda - I read your response to Dennis Whitfield with interest. Unfortunately, almost none of the Lynams you mention connect with my line, with the possible exception of George. George was born about 1746, place unknown, but presumably passed through Delaware and Maryland before settling in Union County, SC, where he fought in the Revolutionary War. He died in Union County in 1815. I have not been able to trace his lineage, but the Christian names don't suggest Scandinavian. I have a copy of his signature which is in a beautiful hand and spells his name Linam. However, I'm curious about the "ungrateful son" remark in Anders Lynam's will. Do you have any further detail? George Linam's descendents left SC for Lawrence County, TN, and Lawrence County, AL around 1825. My line eventually moved to the Republic of Texas (later Victoria County) and New Mexico territory. I'm in Tucson, AZ. By the way, did you ever get a response from Dennis Whitfield? I just posted a response to his posting, but note it is a year old. Regards.
