Larkin, Peter Larkin, died a few weeks ago. The funeral took place Thursday and was largely attended.

LAWRENCE [Augusta GA, The Augusta Chronicle, Thur 16 March 1916] DEATH YESTERDAY OF MR. BRYAN LAWRENCE; Passed Away at 1:30 p.m. at University Hospital; FOR YEARS LEADING AND PROGRESSIVE AUGUSTAN. He Had Been a Sufferer From Illness for a Year - One of the Best Known and Most Highly Regarded Men in This Section. Mr. Bryan Lawrence, for a generation a prominent and progressive Augustan, for twelve months an invalid and a sufferer, died yesterday, at 1:30 o'clock at the University Hospital. Though his death has long been expected for there was no hope that he would recover from his illness - news that he had passed away will bring deep sorrow to hundreds of Augustans. When he was in health and strength, there was no finer Augustan and no better man. He was quick to respond when there was work to be done or a fund to be equipped for the advancement of Augusta. He was always in the lead in planning, equipping and executing plans to progress the city. Personally, he was a most companionable and lovable man. He was bighearted and generous and true to his friendships. He was a devout Catholic, and a leading member of St. Patrick's Church. For years in the hotel business, and a man who readily made acquaintances, he was well known through out the South Atlantic States. He has served in the city council and held leading places in the civic and political activities. He was a man of superior business ability. He was a good citizen in all that the word implies. Ill a Long Time. Mr. Lawrence had not been in good health for three or four years. A year ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis and since then has been hovering between life and death. Friday new complications set in and he was subject to a surgical operation. His was an iron constitution, but his illness of a year had preyed on his physical strength. The end came yesterday. During his severe illness (on the 19th of August last) his beloved wife died. Because of his critical condition, information of that bereavement was not imparted to him. But, finally the absence of Mrs. Lawrence from his hospital bedside - for she spent the days with him and ministering to him - had to be explained to him in November. Mr. Lawrence is survived by the following children: Mrs. Mary Emma Walker, of Augusta; Mrs. C Bruce Young, of Augusta; Mrs. James P. Johnson, of Atlanta; Mrs. Frank Bussey of Atlanta; Mr. E. L. Lawrence and Mr. B. J. Lawrence, of Augusta. Came Here When Young Man. Mr. Lawrence, born in Woonsocket, R.I., was 62 years of age on March 5th. He came to Augusta when he was 18, and married an Augusta lady. In his young days he was in the butchering business and with his brother, the late Mr. Edward Lawrence, conducted the leading meat market in this section. Mr. Lawrence progressed rapidly. He became the hotel man of Augusta. Invested largely in real estate and became interested in a number of different businesses, besides conduction out-of-town hotel establishments. He was at one time owner of the Planters and for years the lessee of the Albien (sp). He was the Arlington lessee when that building burned. He owned a lot on Barrett Plaza when he became ill and, but for his sickness, would have built a hotel there. He owned valuable farming land near the city and was very successful in farming and dairying. The funeral will take place this afternoon at 4 o'clock from St. Patrick's Church and the interment will be in the City Cemetery. Active pallbearers: R. J. Baronewski, J. Frank Carswell, Charles H.

LYNCH [Newport RI Mercury, Saturday 18 Feb 1882] Died… In Providence, 14th, Matthew R. Lynch, aged 47 years

LYNCH [Fall River MA Daily Globe, Wed. 20 June 1906] The funeral of Dennis Lynch occurred this morning from the residence of his daughter, Mrs. John Cunningham on Stafford road.

LYNCH [ Fall River MA Evening News, 4 Feb 1909 ] Capt. Thomas E. Lynch, whose death, of facial cancer, had been anticipated, passed away at his home, No 320 Third street, about 9:30 this morning, age 61. Although seriously troubled by his affliction, he had continued on duty, barring very short intervals, until about a week ago, when he gave up all work, knowing that the end of his life’s course was near. A man of his stamp, so long connected with the Fire Department, must be mourned and missed as time goes on. Capt Lynch was born in Providence , July 18, 18 47 , the son of Richard and Mary Pickett Lynch, natives of Ireland , who settled early in life in this country, the former in Boston , the latter in one of the British provinces.  When an infant he came with his parents to this city, where he had since resided, in 1861 he entered in the shoemaker’s trade, and this he followed until 1886. At the age of 14, he joined the Fall River fire department.  He was first appointed a torch boy of Engine Co. No. 1.  In 1869, some eight years later, he became a call member of that company, and during that year he saved the life of Michael Hare in the Waddington building in Court Square, in which Mr. Hare had become unconscious from the inpouring smoke and heat.  He was transferred to Engine Co No. 2 on July 7, 18 74 and was elected foreman in the following year, becoming captain of the company in 1882, and since 1886 has been permanent captain of Hose Co No. 2 and Chemical 2.  He was also detailed as District Chief last February. Captain Lynch was the principal promoter of the Fall River Firemen’s Mutual Relief Association, formed in 1883.  In 1893, he published, after long and laborious effort at compilation, his “History of the Fire Department of Fall River”, the sole authority on local fire department matters. The deceased was of companionable disposition, and was much regarded by those who served under him in his long period of command of firemen.  He was quiet and undemonstrative, and those who cultivated his acquaintance were surprised to find how diverse were his avocations.  He was not only interested in matters pertaining  to fire extinguishment, but in history in many forms, and enjoyed gathering a wide variety of relics and buying and selling old and valuable books, pictures, coins and other keepsakes. He had mastered the painter’s art, and made many a pretty piece of mural decoration showing love of natural scenery and of the craft by which it is preserved.  Much might also be said of Captain Lynch’s gentlemanly bearing, and of his enjoyment of dignified and oratorical speech. He leaves a wife, to whom he was married in 1886, who was Miss Margaret B. Mahoney, of this city, also a son, Richard Edward Lynch, a student in the high school. The funeral will be held at 10 o’clock Saturday morning at St. Mary’s cathedral. [Submitted by Dan Sweeney]
