LYNCH, JERRY KANE
My great grandfather Jerry Kane Lynch was born 1856 in Washington D.C.  He died October 24, 1935 in Eldridge Alabama. I was told he accidentally poisoned himself.  He was an 'inventor' making all kinds of potions.  Supposedly --had a patent on a rose oil based ointment that he lost in a court case against a major company.
    He also wrote a lot about politics and other things.  But so far, no one in the family has found any of those papers.
    I've been told he was also a photographer so somewhere there should be lots of photos.  Again, we haven't found them.
attached is a photo of him as a young man.
    He was married to Arminda Herron who was an amateur horticulturist.   Sold flowers and plants.  Died in 1961.  Jerry Kane Lynch used to run a boarding house with his sister Jane Lynch. I don't know what brought him to Alabama.
    If you run across any information --or know where I could find more information -- please let me know.

MCINTYRE, ERASTUS S.
I hope you might be able to help me.  I have found that my g-g grandfather's 1/2 brother Erastus S McIntyre was Walker County Solicitor from 1892 to 1895.  His death was 9/23/1895; however, I can find no obituary.  It seems there would have been one.  His birth was 10/7/1860.  I believe he was born in Conecuh County and know he is buried in Monroe County, because he and my father are buried at the same cemetery.  If you can point me in the right direction, I would certainly appreciate it.  Thanks.

Amos is my uncle.  I did not know he was supporting the family in Walker County.  My mother is on line 6, Orlean Salter, 13 years old.  I would like to know where they were in Walker County to try to find out what school my mother attended.  Also, what coal mine Amos may have been working.
