Diane, There are several of us researching Obadiah Lynes. He is my great-great grandfather. I haven't had alot of time to continue my research lately but will soon have the time to resume it. I did recieve a lot of information from a distant cousin. She was very helpful to me. I am still trying to find information on Obadiah's parents, Thomas Lemual Lynes and Mary Watters. Both of them show birtplace as S. C. in the 1850 census Jones Co., Miss. Please email me at .
