Patrick Lynch had run away to join the Army during the Civil War at the early age of 14. He was caught and sent back home. He was a self-taught lawyer and practiced in Blairstown.

The following is an excerpt from a resolution written by Floyd Pearson, the then secretary of the Winn. Co. Bar Association, upon Arch’s death 12 Sep 1954: “Mr. Lynch was an excellent lawyer. His work was characterized by industry and thoroughness. His character and code of honor were inflexible and unyielding. His sense of professional ethics was keen. He was persevering and stable in his character. He was a learned and perceiving student of the law and an effective advocate. His work and studies were often interspersed with unmatchable humor and wit. He was loved and respected by all members of the bar and judiciary who knew him.”
