His son James LYNCH may have been born in Ireland. (who may have also used the name Francis James LYNCH. All the other references in old letters say "James" and the family tree and all other genealogical sources use the name James, so this other name, Francis James LYNCH is a remote possibility) and married Marguerite HOWLEY in Quebec Canada in 1843. (Margaret's father, Patrick HOWLEY arrived in Quebec in 1828, probably with wife and children. Wife's maiden name was Margaret COOK. There are no birth dates available for either of them. All families were Catholic.) James and Marguerite's children were James (1853) , Mary (1855), Agnes (1857), and then the family moved to Quebec, Canada, where Frances was born Nov. 18, 1859. The last child was Emma, born in 1861.

She met and married William MAIN in 1879 and travelled with him to Fresno,where they raised a family of eleven children.
