David, Lorraine, Lindsay and Andrew Wilson would like to say welcome to Harry - the newest member of the Lynskey clan. The photos are beautiful and certainly prove the old saying "like father like son".

May he have a long, healthy, life and bring great joy to his Mum and Dad.

Chuck,

I think it is fitting to note that the last Lynskey to grow up on the Lynskey farm in Danville from the generation of Gaston, Anne, and Martin passed away April 22, 2004. Mary L. (Lynskey) Hackett, youngest daughter of John Joseph Lynskey, brother to William Edward Lynskey, your Great Grandfather, died after a long illness in Ohio. Mary lived for 40 years in Cranford, NJ. She was survived by her son James, and daughters Ann Noone and Judith Collier. Submitted by James E. Biller Jimb856@Aol.Com

Hi Lynskeys: My Great Grandfather Patrick Lynskey, married to Mary Deskin, had a pub in Milltown, Galway. Three children, Patrick, my grandfather, Thomas, and Margaret. I knew Patrick slightly before he died in New York. Margaret married Thomas Kenny in Manhattan in 1903. Know very little about Thomas. Does anyone know about Patrick and wife Mary Deskin? The children came to the U.S. but I think Patrick and Mary stayed in Galway. My E mail: ctobin@localnet.com a

Hi Kevin Sue and James Lynskey, I did leave a message on the book in 2002, but I have changed my email address to suelynskey18@btinternet.com

We live in Bromsgrove Worcestershire. Without repeating myself again, we are looking for Info on a John Francis Lynskey (Jack) who is Kevin's father. He may have been married before he married Kevin's mother Hettie Irene Harris, and he could well have had a son called Thomas (Tom) from that first marriage?

John Francis was born in Galway and as far as we know lived on a farm, he would have been born around 1900-1910, not sure of exact date. Many thanks.

Hi to all the Lynskeys! I married into the name this year, and decided to look up its meaning... surprised to find another Carmel Lynskey out there - I keep being told it is a beautiful name! My husband (David Lynskey) is from Liverpool (although we live in Lytham St Annes), and one of several, so I'll get him to post some more details shortly. carmellynskey@hotmail.com

My parents are Kevin Lynskey, born and raised in Sharpsburg, PA , Ann Louise Domyan Lynskey born and raised in Turtle Creek, PA. There is a whole clan of Lynskey's in Pittsburgh, PA. Some of my cousins, whose mother was a Lynskey, have the last name of Kotchey. Lynskey is such an unusual name, that we love hearing that there are others out there.

My father comes from a family of 8. My father, great Uncle and cousin all traced our family back to Ireland. My father was able to meet his distant cousin several years ago in Ireland. As someone else on this website commented, we had also been told that our name came from a Polish origin with the last portion being changed. Funny how those stories cross all country lines!

Hi Cynthia, please email me via the "email link" in my guest book.  I have a large amount of information regarding your family tree.  Chuck.

Hello everybody, my name is ZoŽ Lynskey and I think that it is wonderful to have a site like this. i had no idea that there were so many Lynskeys out there. Here is a little about me ; I live with my family in Christchurch, New Zealand (where there are only 6 other Lynskeys in the phonebook!). I'm 16 years old and I'm currently studing for my high school exams. I'll find out some more information about my branch of the Lynskey family and post it here.

Hi there, I am Jan Lynsky Cotter-Harris, daughter of James and Shirley Lynsky now in California. Dad was originally from Cleveland Ohio and was the son of James and Emma Lynsky who was son of William Lynsky, son of Timothy Lynsky and originally I understand we're all from County Mayo. I am a Latter Day Saint (Mormon) and so am very, very interested in geneology. I am so thrilled to find your web site. I'll explore this some more later after work. thanks
