On my last blog on December 4, 2010, I attached two grave markers-Colonel Charles Lynch and Anna Terrell Lynch. At this time I will not be discussing them. If anyone would like to send comments or information, I would certainly appreciate your interest. I am not discussing them at this moment because they are an important piece of Americana for the area and for history.
I will be listing the names of their children.
Charles Lynch and Anna Terrell Lynch were married on January 12, 1755.
Their children were:
Charles Lynch, born November 28, 1756 Died July, 1822
Anselm Lynch born June 8, 1764 Died February 18, 1826
John Lynch born September 11, 1769 died June 14, 1842 This is not the founder of Lynchburg. The John Lynch that was the founder of Lynchburg was his uncle.
Christopher Lynch born April 17, 1775 died June 1797
Sallie Lynch born November 28, 1773 died September 2, 1816
Born June 8, 1764
Died February 18, 1826
Anselm Lynch lived at Green Level which was later called Avoca. Anselm married Mrs Susannah Miller Baldwin daughter of John Miller of Lynchburg and Mrs. Mary Moorman Johnson. This was a second marriage for Susannah. She was married to Dr. Zebulon Baldwin until his death on July 14, 1795.
During Anselm's youth he was a member of the Virginia Militia and was in the battle of Guilford Courthouse. He was recommended as a First Lieutenant of the Militia in Bedford County on September 24, 1781. In March, 1782, he was recommended as a Captain for the Militia in Campbell County. He was sworn in as a Justice of Campbell County in February, 1802 and was a member of the State Legislature in 1809, 1010,1811 and 1812. According to the book Richmond Terrell and Timothy Terrell Colonial Virginians, he was a breeder of fine horses and had a race track laid off near his home.
Died; July 1, 1808.
Susan Miller married first Dr. Zebulon Baldwin on April 2, 1975. According to The Lynchburg and Farmer's Gazette Page 3 Column 4 which I found in Ancestry.com, Dr. Baldwin died on July 14, 1795. They were only married three months. Four years later she married Anselm Lynch.
