Omaha Memories, E. F. Morearty, 1916:
" James Lynch Sr., born in County Kerry, Ireland, in 1832. He located to Ithaca, NY, with his wife and family in 1857. In 1862 the family moved to Omaha direct from Ithaca and lived for a number of years on the northeast corner of Fourteenth and Jacksons Streets, moving from there in 1865 to 1518 March Street, where on August 29, 1866, he died, with his wife following him a few years afterward. They left surviving them six children- Daniel, Margaret, Patrick, James, Minnie, and Sue. Of these two have died, Daniel and Patrick. All of the family are given as follows:
Daniel born January 12, 1841, was a blacksmith and for a number of years ran a blacksmith shop in Omaha. In addition to his trade he was an excellent violinist and was in much demand in the early days of Omaha, when entertainment's were given to men of prominence who visited here after the war, General Sherman being one of the distinguished guests at a reception given him in the old Herndon House. He was for a number of years located at the Rosebud Agency, at which place he died November 1890, and was buried in Omaha.
Margaret, born October 11, 1843, was married in 1865 to Thomas Cleary, who for years was engaged in the express business. He died May 29, 1870, leaving a wife and two children, Frank and Agnes. Agnes married John J. Hannighen in 1893 and is living in Omaha. Frank was married to Miss Mary Hogan in 1899 and now resides in Chicago, after severing his connection to the Union Pacific and the Missouri Pacific railroads, and is now engaged with the Great Western railroad.
Patrick was born March 9, 1849, was married to Ellen Fitzpatrick in Omaha on August 7, 1873. He was for more than twenty years in the employ of the Union Pacific railroad as a check clerk at the local freight office, was county jailer for two years-1890-1891; was four years a gauger at the Willow Springs Distilling Company in Omaha under Cleveland's first administration; was government storekeeper at the same place from 1892 to 1906, a position he held at the time of his death, December 13, 1906. He is survived by a wife, three sons-James, Benjamin, William-and one daughter, Angela. His son Benjamin, succeeded him in his position at the time of his death. William is an attorney, James an electrician. Angela is married to John Mattern, all residing in Omaha.
James H. born December 23, 1853, was years in the employ of the Union Pacific railroad in various capacities, first as a check clerk in the local freight department in Omaha; for one year telegraph operator and agent for the road at Brady Island and Columbus, NE; was clerk of the Omaha police court for two years 1890-1891, and agent for the Northwestern Railroad at Jackson, NE, from 1892-1896 and agent for the same road at Chicago from 1896-1900. He is now in the employ of the Great Western in Omaha. He was married to Elizabeth Coffey at Columbus, NE in 1882 and has one son, Daniel, a plumber, and two daughters, Agnes and Gertrude, both telegraph operators and employed with the Western Union. All are residing in Omaha.
Minnie, born August 28, 1857, was married to Otto Michaelsen, an uncle of the noted sculptor, Solon Borglum (Mount Rushmore), in 1881 at Omaha. Her husband is a machinist by trade and the inventor and patentee of the celebrated Michaelsen crusher and ore refiner, an invention to be found in any part of the civilized world where mining camps are located and rock crushing carried on to any extent. They had three children-Charles, Will, and Ilean. Charles died in May, 1915. Will is manager in his father's manufacturing establishment, and Ilean is at present in an art institute. The family for the past two years has resided in Minneapolis, MN.
Susie, born August 18, 1861, is the baby of the family and was on year old when she came to Omaha. She attended the Jackson Street School, also the Pacific and Omaha High during the time the late lamented Professor Beals was professor at the school. She was married to me May 13, 1884, at St. Philomena's Cathedral in this city. We had born to us eight children-five boys and three girls-all living. The oldest boy, Hilliard, is in the real estate business. Irven, the next, is field engineer for the city of Omaha. He was married to Ruth Coryell of Trenton, NJ in June, 1911. Edward Jr. is a clerk at the Omaha postoffice. Charles, a student at Central High is a battalion sergeant-major of the cadets and captain of the football team. Milton is a student at the Commerce High School. Mae is my stenographer, Viola a music teacher and Sue Harriett a teacher in the Omaha public schools. Some family, is it not? for a humble lawyer to have reared, and all but one living under the same roof, with one of the best mothers the world ever produced. (I can't say much for the father).
