(Comment from Clarence J. Gamroth - The Charles Lynn or Lyne who got the patent (deed) from the United States in 1857 was a tutor to George H. and Arthur A. Markham.  He came with the Markhams from England in 1856.  He lived with the Markhams until he moved to some western state.  The Markhams owned a large tract of land which bordered on the Trempealeau River to the south.)
