From his first census Francis was known as Frank (but the family name is spelled Linch). Frank was born in Indiana, but his family had moved to Illinois about 1876. Frank was one of nine siblings in 1880, and his mother was only 37 so there may have been more. Among his siblings was Lucy, who was about two years older.
He applied for the license to marry Laura Eighner using the name Frank M. Lynch, and the couple appears to have settled near Rankin until about 1917. No record of any children has been uncovered and census data suggests none surviving in 1910 and 1920. In 1920 Laura is with her father's family in Indiana, and she is listed as married, but Frank is living with his sister (who has married John B. Seals) in Danville, and is listed as divorced.
Frank appears as married to his second wife in the 1930 Census, but as there is no evidence of children and she is 50 years old, it would appear Frank never had children.
