A. 156th Illinois infantry, with which he served until the close of the Rebellion. He was promoted to the rank of orderly Sgt., and was afterwards discharged. In every position he did his duty faithfully, whether in the thick of battle, or on the lonely picket line.
At the close of the Civil war, Daniel Lynch located at Hebron, Porter County, Ind.
In 1897, he was appointed postmaster of Lowell under President McKinley, and was again reappointed in 1902 by President Roosevelt, which position he held under the government for 9 years. He has ever been an ardent Republican.
On November 24th, 1869, he was united in marriage to Miss Ada Starr.
