    We are informed by his son James in the previously mentioned letter that
Edward Lynah, his father immigrated from Ireland with his mother and brother
around the year 1768-1770 and after serving in the Revolutionary war as a
surgeon's mate in the siege of Savannah and with Marion's Corps, he married
first on 6 December 1792 in Charleston:

(he died 12 July 1828 age 31) issue unkown.
        V. (8) Elizabeth Isabella M 1 January 1829 at Stono, St. Paul's
Parish, Dr. Edward Wilkinson Hamilton, son of Governor Paul Hamilton of S. C.
 They moved to Alabama in 1832 (I (Christie Hamilton Verdonik believe the
year to have been 1839). issue unknown. (to be provided by Christie Hamilton
Verdonik, great-great-granddaughter of Edward Lynah and Elizabeth Isabell(a)
        VI.(9)  Edward Thomas M Adeline Fickling, niece of his stepmother.

Edward married (2) on 27 Nov. 1816 Elizabeth Fickling (d 1 May 1841).  There
was no issue from this marriage.

Edward Lynah, planter, doctor, realtor, commission merchant, auctioneer, as
he called himself at various times was left trustee of his father's estate
for both his and his brother James' (2) part.  The estate was indeed
formidable and through various purchases and alterations by 1825 consisted of
the following:

1.  plantation: Laurel Hill, Comahee River S C 1676 acres Laurel Springs,
Comahee River 352 acres (the old house tract adjoining ?)

2.  Tracts of land: Pineland, hammock(?) branch, St. Bartholomew's Parish
1300 acres
    Stono River, St. Paul's Parish, Colleton Co, 370 acres
    St. Paul's Parish, Colleton Co 662 acres
    on Pon Pon River
    St. Paul's Parish, Colleton County, 200 acres
    on Adams run
    West Florida ? 4000 acres.

3.  City property:  dwelling Pitt and Montague Sts. Charleston
                #4 & #5 King Street, Charleston
                dwelling Meeting and Queen Sts.

    It would appear that Edward although left a considerable estate was not
as sagaceous or as competent as his father.  At age 66, in 1895, he was force
to turn over the estate to his son James (4) and much of it had to be
liquidated in order to pay his debts.  This was done and James (4) managed to
save a substantial portion; however, the settlement of the estate trust of
Dr. James Lynah (1) was not to the liking of the various other grandchildren.
 As a result numerous lawsuits were initiated, even before Edward's death, by
nieces, nephews, and even his own son Edward Thomas. (1)

    Edward lived the luxurious life of a planter and prosperous citizen of
Charleston.  He was a Mason, Director of the Bank of South Carolina, and
active in the Catholic church, assisting in the purchase of the Vauxhall
Gardens where the present Cathedral was built on Broad and Legare Streets in

Edward, certainly one of the most handsome of the Lynahs was, it  would
appear, to be somewhat atypical of a rich man's son.  Apparently lacking the
business sense of his father, he managed to lose a large part of his father's
estate through various speculations.  His vanity and pride are apparent in
some of his actions.  For example after removing some poor waif from the
orphanage, he in turn sued the directors of the orphanage for the maintenance
and support of the child.  An unheard of action as the court declared in
finding against him. (2)  He was obviously honest as his father trusted him,
his son admired him, and he was not one to shirk his obligations or
responsibilities, but he . complicated the family finances and
consequently .. friendly relationships which should have existed between
.  Edward Thomas were broken and as far as   were never
