His possible parents are Robert Lynn and Sarah Hale or William Lynn and Catharine E. Unknown. Does any one know which one is his?
There is a Robert M. Lynn abt 1789 SC or Ireland died Oct 1832 Stewart County, TN married 1816 Anderson County, SC to Sarah. Robert M. Lynn died soon after Robert was born. From the Stewart County TN Court Minutes: Extracts from 1833 John K. Colson Appointed guardian of Robert Lynn, November 6, 1833. No mention of Robert’s mother.
I found a Robert Lynn in the 1850 Census Monroe County TN living with William Catherine Lynn of about the right age. William was born Abt. 1816 SC and his wife Catharine E. Lynn was born Abt. 1810 TN. There were other children in the household with various sir names.
So could William Lynn be his father or maybe an Uncle?
Could either of the above be connected to my Robert Wiley Lynn?
