Enlisted in the 17th on 18 Nov., 1861. Assigned to Co. "D" of the 17th Ark. Infantry, in Co. "K", 11th Ark. Infantry after consolidation. In the fall of 1863, Jesse W. Lynch, my great-great grandfather, was in a skirmish where his horse was shot from under him. He was shot in the leg and then bayoneted through the side, while pinned under his horse. He was left at the Army Hospital in Iuka, Miss. on Aug. 17, 1863. Returned home to Benton Co., Ark., in 1864 to learn that his wife, Barbara (Spoon) Lynch had been killed by Jayhawkers. Their children, John, David, James (my great grandfather) and Susan, were living with neighbors. He reportedly was crippled for life but my father, Jesse Harmon Lynch (now 93) remembers seeing him riding a large bay horse. According to family tradition, Jesse married Rebecca, the neighbor who was keeping the children, and they had a son named Jeffry. Then Rebecca found out her first husband was still alive and she took Jeffry and left. Jesse moved to Missouri, remarried and raised another family. Most of the Lynch families were pro-union and Jesse found he wasn't welcome by the family. He settled in Camden County, Mo., and died Nov. 1, 1911 near Macks Creek. He is buried in Pleasant Grove Cemetery where a Confederate Soldiers Monument marks his final resting place. Taken from the Linch/Lynch family history published in 1993, researched by Ray Hanford Linch of Tulsa, Okla.
