This may be irrelevant to your branch of Lynams, but I'll throw it out for what it's worth. My 3rd GGF, Thomas Linam, was born about 1774 (place unknown) but by 1778 was in Union County, South Carolina. He and his wife Elenor "Nelly" Wadlington left South Carolina before the 1830 census. Family tradition says that one of the three brothers, possibly Thomas, moved to Kentucky. The family heard from him and he had changed the spelling of his name to Lynam. Elenor was known to have many relatives in the southwest area of Kentucky, and in 1841, Thomas and Elenor's son John married Mary Wadlington, a widow, in Trigg County, Kentucky. I know nothing else about the Kentucky line, and evidence indicates that Thomas later left for Texas and may have been killed in a ships fire.
