Mary Ann Dam b. July 1, 1843 in Arkansas married Peter Gilfoil Lynch born in Ireland. Mary Ann lists her parents as being from Germany on the 1920 Census. Mary and Peter had 5 children: Robert, Cornelius Boudinot, William, Lilly, and Nellie. Peter, Mary Ann and Nellie are buried in the Maysville Cemetery in Maysville, Benton County, Arkansas. Has anyone ever heard of a Dam family living in Arkansas as early as 1843 or so?
Mary Ann's mother's first name may have been Elizabeth, it is listed on her death certificate.
