This page can be considered as an addendum to J.W. Lynch's Journal.  On March 27, 1926 JW copied the Genealogical Family History of his mother and father, David B. Lynch and Rebecca Hurry Lynch, that were a part of that families Bible. This information is a listing of many of their ancestors and others birth and death dates. These two pages, front and back, were not copied by JW as a part of the journals but were copied on two separate larger sheets of paper and kept folded with the journals. Their are various entries that I believe were added by JW either as he copied the information or at a later time, this will be up to the reader to determine if they are in agreement with me and what these entries would be. In my opinion these entries can make the information appear to be out of order and even difficult to follow.

An additional page is an alphabetical listing of surnames with information from various parts of these pages combined.
