I'm not sure my information will help. I've read your posting, and except for the surname LYNN and Kalamazoo, I don't recognize anything. But here it is. Maybe you can make a connection. My great-great grandfather, WILLIAM LYNN, moved to Wakeshma Township in Kalamazoo county, Michigan circa 1864. I come thru his son, CHARLES RUFUS LYNN>WILLIAM LYNN>WILLIAM LYNN>Me. I've got the list of brothers/sisters/wives, but will not include it here.
