Wyoming Tribune no. 263 October 13, 1905, page 2 Cheyenne

M. L. Lynch and family are rejoicing over the advent of a little sister into their home. The little stranger is very tiny, weighing only three pounds, but as she seems to be in good health the Lynchs have decided to keep her and have christened her Helen Mildred.

 

NOTE. Parents are probably Mike and Kate Lynch, 1900, 1910, 1920 census Ten Sleep In 1910 the census says they have four children with two living after being married for 22 years.  Harold and Helen are possibly twins, but can they be born three weeks apart?  No census of other Lynch families are in Ten Sleep.

 

Catherine (headstone spelling or Katherine /Kate – the newspaper spelling)  and Mike Lynch were the parents of a set of twins born in1905 - Helen and Harold.  Harold died after a few hours and Helen (weighing 3 pounds)  a few days later.
