 From the Portrait and Biographical Record of Sheboygan County, Wis., 1898:

Thomas H. Lynch, Page 641


THOMAS H. LYNCH, Secretary and Treasurer of the South Sheboygan Land Company, is a native of Sheboygan, having been a resident of this city all of his life.  He was born January 22, 1862, and is a son of Michael John Lynch, a pioneer of this city. (see his sketch.)

    Mr. Lynch of this sketch, after receiving a fair English education in the common schools of his native city, learned the printer's trade.  In 1887, he, in company with H. W. Bolens, under the firm name of Bolens & Lynch, started the Daily Journal.  In 1888 the Journal Printing Company was incorporated, Mr. Lynch being chosen editor.  That partnership continued until 1889, when he sold out and engaged in the real-estate business.  With others, he joined in the organization of the Lake Lawn Land Company, and the Chelsea Land Company; and later in the South Sheboygan Land Company.  Of the last-named, the Hon. T. M. Blackstock is President; P. H. Keenan, Vice-President; Thomas H. Lynch, Secretary and Treasurer.  These companies have platted and put on the market quite extensive and valuable tracts of land, and have sold many lots that have been improved, thereby permanently aiding in the growth and development of the city.

    Mr. Lynch still devotes a portion of his time to newspaper work, and is correspondent for the Chicago Times, Milwaukee Journal, etc.  He is a Democrat in politics.  In addition to his real-estate business, he is engaged in fire insurance, and is building up a fine agency in that line.
