Re: Edward Lynch - SC - 18th c.
I found the name Abner curious.
William Lynch of Pittsylvania Co., VA. married a woman named Elizabeth, who's maiden name I cannot find.
They named a son Abner.
Elizabeth died, date unknown, and William Lynch married a widow named Ann Moon Stone, widow of Ashwell Stone, in 1785.
May mean nothing, but it may be a clue.
