JOHN B. LYNCH.
Napa county received a valuable addition to its citizenship when John B. Lynch located here, and he has proven
himself the kind of a man that would be a desirable acquisition to any community. He is a native of Solano county,
and was born in the American canon on the 2d of September, 1891, a son of Peter and Mary (Donnelly) Lynch. The
father came to California in 1870 and the mother came to this state in her girlhood. In 1880 they settled in the
American canon, where all of their children were born. John B. Lynch was educated in the public schools and had
two years of high school work at Fairfield. Because of his father's advancing years it then became necessary for
him to return to the home ranch. Upon his father's death he took over the management and operation of the farm,
which he has continued to the present Ste: - Me is engaged in stock raising in Napa county, owning two thousand
acres of land and renting eight thousand acres. He runs large herds of cattle and a great number of sheep and has
attained excellent success in his operations. He is a man of great energy and sound business ability and has gained
a high reputation as a progressive and up to date cattleman.
Mr. Lynch was married to Miss Verna Switzer, a native of Napa county, of which her parents were pioneer settlers.
Politically Mr. Lynch is aligned with the republican party, though in local elections he maintains a somewhat independent
attitude, voting according to the dictates of his judgment. He is a member of the Benevolent Protective Order of
Elks, the Knights of Columbus and the Rotary Club.
