LYNES-CRAYTON,Miss., 1870
Posted by: Charles Franz Date: July 07, 1998 at 23:05:07

My name is Charles Franz. The reason I am posting this is that I am in possession of something
that needs to be returned to the proper family. At a garage sale, I purchased a journal. Inside the journal were a number of marriage, birth,
and death listings for families with the surnames of LYNES and CRAYTON. These familes resided in the Baldwyn,
Mississippi area, however, part of the family moved to the Cooper, Texas area sometime prior to 1900.
The most current event listed, is a death in 1915, most are middle to late 1800`s. I would like to get this
back to the proper family. If any of the people mentioned below are your family, and you would like to
have this paperwork, please contact me.
There is also a beautiful, full page, hand written eulogy to a small child who died about 1870, and
a small, faded photograph of six young men, in their late teens or early twenties.
Here are some of the names mentioned:
WILLIAM DORIC LYNES
ELIZABETH EMOLINE CRAYTON (LYNES)
HELEN CROCKET LYNES
HIRAM LYNES
WILLIAM DORIC LYNES, JR.
ROBERT AUBREY LYNES ( I think this is who the eulogy is about)
AUDUBON MIMS LYNES
MINIE LYNES
EARNEST LYNES
OLGA LYNES
BLANCHE LYNES
LOTO JULIA LYNES ? (hard to read)
LUCIENDA CRAYTON (LYNES)
JENNIE WATT(LYNES)
ROENA CATHERINE CRAYTON(LYNES)
As I previously stated, all I want to do is get this back to the proper people. If any of these names are
your Family, and you want this paperwork, or a photocopy of it, please contact me.
