Cadiz Record January 1905

MR. W.C. LYNN
Returns to Trigg County After an Absence of Forty-Seven Years.
We had the pleasure yesterday morning of a call from Mr. W.C. (Tobe) Lynn of
Dallas, Texas, who is here on a visit to his niece, Mr. J.W. McKinley. Mr.
Lynn was born and raised in what is now known as the old John Dyer place, on
the Cadiz and Canton pike, four miles west of here. He was born in 1837 and
lived in this county until 1858, when he moved to the Purchase country. He
joined the Confederate army in 1861 and went through the war. After the war
he located in Ballard county, where he was married to Miss mollie E. Holton,
aunt of Mrs. McKinney. In 1874 he moved to Texas, where he has since lived,
this being his first visit back to Kentucky, and his first visit to Trigg
county since he left it in 1858. Mr. Lynn has been living in Dallas for
thirty-three years, and his wife and three of his eight children are still
living. He is a carpenter by trade. He is a most interesting
conversatinalist and this was one of the most pleasant and interesting calls
we have had for a long time. He will be here about a week longer.
