Hardesty's History of Calhoun County, West Virginia


George Lynch, Jr., son of George and Mary (Gregory) Lynch, was born on Williams River, Nicholas County, Virginia (now West Virginia), February 14, 1813. His parents both died in Gilmer County, this state, his father in 1860, and his mother in 1875, but he has made his home in what is now Calhoun County since 1843. In that year he left Gilmer County, and settled on West Fork, building a mill near where he now lives. In Arnoldsburg, this county, February 15, 1843, the words were spoken joining in one the lives of George Lynch, Jr., and Jemima Knotts, and the years that have ensued have given them fourteen children, born: Mary, January 22, 1844; Joseph K., and Julia Ann, December 18, 1845; Pembroke, May 28, 1848, died October 1, 1872; Louisa, November 17, 1851; Rufus, August 14, 1853, died November 7, 1858; Amy, March 15, 1856; Sarah E., May 1, 1858; Almira E., October 16, 1860; Leuverna S., January 28, 1862, died December 25, 1866; Kosciuske and Pulaski, April 16, 1866, died January 18 and 19, 1867, respectively; George L., January 14, 1868; Matilda J., September 28, 1870. The wife of Mr. Lynch was born September 18, 1827, in Harrison County, then in Virginia, a daughter of Joseph and Mary (Arnold) Knotts. Her father is now deceased, her mother living in Washington district, Calhoun County. George Lynch, Jr., has served Calhoun County in many official positions, From 1854-56 he was justice of the peace; 1856, for a number of years was surveyor for the county, serving until ill health forced him to resign; in 1870 he represented Calhoun and Gilmer Counties in the legislature, and 1771-72, he was representative from Calhoun and Ritchie Counties. Farming and surveying now occupy his time, and Arnoldsburg, Calhoun County, West Virginia is his address.
