Matt Lynch, Pioneer Cattle Rancher, Dies
The rugged pioneer spirit that fired William Madison (Matt) Lynch to leave his natice Missouri in 1874 and seek fame and fortune in Arizona played out at 2:45 o’clock this morning in the middle of his 87th year.
Death occurred in the Arizona Pioneers Home where Matt Lynch has been a guest of the state since December 1, 1920. A period of nearly 15 years.
In the early days he was engaged in the cattle ranching business, when Arizona’s valleys were lush with waist tall grass and, in truth, the deer and the antelope roamed, plentiful and far.
Lynch’s wife died 48years ago. Their daughter 42 since. There survives a son, Frank Lynch, who is ranching near Prescott on Willow Creek. The elder Lynch was born April 14, 1848 in Tuscumbia MO, the son of James T. and Mary T. Lane Lynch.
Services are scheduled for 2:30 o’clock Monday afternoon in the chapel of Lester Ruffner Funeral Home, the Rev. John. L. Losh of the first Baptist church to deliver the funeral sermon. Burial is to be made in the family plot in the old Simmons cemetery.
