THOMAS B. LYNCH.
A native and lifelong resident of Napa county, Thomas B. Lynch has led a life of persistent and indefatigable industry,
and in places of responsibility he has proven his worth to the entire satisfaction of all concerned. He was born
on his father's ranch near Soscol on the 19th of January, 1884, and is a son of Matthew and Jane (Quigley) Lynch.
The father came to Napa county about 1860, settling at Soscol, where he devoted himself closely to agricultural
pursuits during the remainder of his life. The mother came to Napa county as a girl, together with a sister, and
she was married to Mr. Lynch in Napa. She is now making her home with her son, the subject.
Thomas B. Lynch received his education in the public and high schools and then went to work on the ranch of his
uncle, Peter Lynch, with whom he remained for thirteen years. During the following five years he was employed on
the State Hospital farm at Napa, as foreman, and in 1920 he was appointed head foreman of the state farm at Yountville.
This farm is maintained as a source of supply for other state institutions and provides all the meat for the State
Prison at San Quentin, the Veterans Home at Yountville and the State Hospital at Napa. It is a well improved property,
and the position of head foreman necessarily entails a vast amount of responsibility and attention to detail, Mr.
Lynch has proven himself well qualified for the work and has received the commendation of those interested in the
successful operation of the farm. Politically he is a stanch republican, and he is a member of the Young Men's
Institute and a third degree member of the Knights of Columbus. He performs his duties faithfully and takes a justifiable
pride in the methodical and up to date manner in which the operations of the farm are conducted under his supervision.
