Saw the message about the connection between Linam & Lynam. When my Linam-Lynam came from South Carolina (1840's) to south Alabama, the spelling was Linam for the next two genarations. When about 1900, my grandfather (Frank Edward Lynam) and his uncle changed thier spelling from Linam to Lynam (according to familey lore the spelling was changed because of a major
familey dispute)
