William Lynch Died at Carthage

Owner of Marvel Cave Succumbs To An Old Ailment - To Be Buried In the Hills.

The following account of the death of William Lynch of Marvel Cave is taken from the Wednesday morning’s Springfield Daily News.  “I’ve little time for quest of gold. I need my time to live. And of the hours I may retrieve, Would there would be more to give.” This verse from a poem “Service” by William Lynch was recalled yesterday by Springfield friends of the Ozark pioneer, inventor, poet and scholar, who yesterday died in a hospital at Carthage. Mr. Lynch was born in Canada but became an American citizen. He was 80 years of age. His death was caused by gangrene in one of his feet due to an infection about 12 years ago from wearing colored socks. When the infection became serious about two weeks ago, he was taken to the hospital in Carthage where his daughter, Miss Genevieve is superintendent. He has one other daughter, Miss Miriam, who lives at the home near Marvel Cave. The first word was received in Springfield of the death of Mr. Lynch yesterday morning by Mrs. C. C. McCord, 1230 Roanoke avenue, a friend of the two daughters. Funeral services will be held in the little Shepherd of the Hills cemetery Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock. In this little cemetery a lone pine stands guard over the graves of other pioneers of the Shepherd of the Hills country - Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Ross, known as “Uncle Matt” and “Aunt Mollie” of the Shepherd of the Hills and Levi Morrill, known as “Uncle Ike”. The Reverend John Crockett, pastor of the Tabernacle Presbyterian church and friend of Mr. Lynch, will have charge of the funeral services. Miss Daisy Livingston, of Springfield, will sing. The life of Mr. Lynch was as colorful as the background of the blue hills against which the last 35 years of his life were enacted. Born in Danville, Quebec, Canada, he held position of responsibility and trust in that country. He was the means of having the Canadian government establish a department of dairy agriculture which had been of much benefit to the country. He was a commissioner for the Canadian government to study mining conditions in the Klondike and served as a member of the Canadian parliament. He had traveled in most of Canada, the United States, Great Britain, Holland, France and Denmark, and he was a scholar and inventor. When in the early 90’s, Mr. Lynch read stories of the wonders of Marvel cave, he became so interested that he came to the Ozarks to visit the cave. Form that time, his love for the cave was a compelling force in his life. He purchased the cave and for several years, spent only part of his time there, making frequent trips to Canada. Those were the days before a railroad had been built through the rugged hills of the White River country, The Old Wilderness road build before the Civil war and over which Mr. Lynch traveled to his cave was not the most accessible road in the country. Freighting was done in wagons from Springfield and Harrison, Ark. Even then, however, the dream of Mr. Lynch for introducing the wonders of the Ozarks to the world was not to be daunted. He had a grand opening of the cave about 1895. A piano was lowered into the cave, a platform built and an orchestra hired. A temporary hotel of several rooms was partially constructed to accommodate the visitors. Few, however, came the great distances, so difficult was travel at that time. In those days, Rm. Lynch must have been a striking figure in the sparsely settle frontier country. Friends who have known him for many years recalled him as he came to the hills wearing a Prince Albert coat, an English cravat and derby and Van Dyke beard. For about 14 years, Mr. Lynch made his permanent home near Marvel Cave. He owned about 1,000 acres of land stretching out over the hills and hollows about the cave. Always his dream was to develop the region, He labored carving out a road across the hills and boasting the region. Mr. Lynch had a remarkable vitality which in spite of his age, enabled him to guide and explore in the cave. Seldom a day passed that he did not go into the cave if only to get a bucket of water from the clear cool spring many feet below the top of the ground and known as “The fountain of youth.” Mr. Lynch was inventor of an anti-dust and draft ventilator which he sold and is used in buildings and railroad cars, but which brought him small financial return. He also was writer of several poems which attracted favorable comment from prominent critics. Mr. Lynch was a friend of Harold Bell Wright, author of “The Shepherd of the Hills. When that writer came too the region for a visit about seven years ago while writing “The Winning of Barbara Worth” Wright also did some sculpture from clay in one room of the cave now called “Wright’s studio”. Always interested in literature. Mr. Lynch numbered among his friends and acquaintances many prominent writers of this country and Canada.


Lynch, William Henry 25 Jul 1846 - 13 Sep 1927 CCR 22 Sep 1927 p1

The destiny of a man’s soul depends upon those things which his mind fosters and which whiten his spark of immortality until it fits into those things pure, from the hands of the Everlasting. The shadow of the life of William Henry Lynch will forever creep across the life of the Ozarks, as the shadows of the fleeting clouds, bringing to the citizens refreshing ideals for which to work and hope. We were unfortunate in that we did not know him, as others should have known him, yet within the time of our short acquaintanceship, we believe we saw deeper into his should, than most others say, who might have known him longer. With a personality founded upon knowledge of man and God, William Henry Lynch sought the beauties of his Marvel Cave, not for that which would inspire the average man, financial gain, but because he knew that he could better fit his soul to meet his master by associating himself with such a handiwork of his creator. And in his doing, he took into consideration the destiny of other souls and sought them to see what he had found and fostered, a real work of God, to the end that an inspiration from on High, might penetrate into the hopes of him who saw. To the writer, the voice of William Henry Lynch came “as a voice crying in the wilderness.” He brought to us the message of Marvel Cave -- what it meant to mankind in the life on earth and more of what it meant to bring people to the realization that such works can be nothing but the work of time, architect by a hand from the Great Unseen Heaven above. William Henry Lunch probably was as much misunderstood and unappreciated as any man that ever lived, because of his supervision and his refined understanding of men generally. We do not believe that his motives were selfish, but that he had the common good of man in mind while working for the things he hoped for. Beneath the pine trees which brought a message to only Pete, the body of William Henry Lynch will in time again become the dust of the earth, while the whisperings of his hopes and the spirits of his unaccomplished ambitions, will be taken up by the breeze of progress of coming generations and will become the things material upon the souls will be fed. No man can come into a community and life the life the life of endeavor and sacrifice that William Henry Lynch lived and fail to lay the foundation for a lasting monument for himself which not only reached into the very heart of the earth, but its pinnacle of service will be as the beacon light on the brow of the highest hill beckoning all to come to the realization that there is a God; that His handiworks are wonderful; and that the destiny of a man’s soul is determined, not by the judgments of men, but by Him, who shall stand at the right hand in that day yet to come. To live among the hills is to live where sentiment abounds more freely than where the hills and valleys are skyscrapers and paved streets of men. To live among the hills, one is more often to be likened into a being, not only human, but a bit spiritual, for it was from the hills whence came the voice crying in the wilderness, heralding unto the world the coming of Him, the Savior of the world. To live among the hills, as did William Henry Lynch, it is fitting and proper that his body should rest where it labored and that the hills should be made his sepulcher. And now as the dawns of day break forth with new hopes, and as the eventide brings its shadows over the havens of rest, the spirit of William Henry Lynch will live within the confines of the Ozarks, centering around Marvel Cave, of which none can speak without an echo of the man whose dream and ambition were the making of it as a place into which all might enter and not be denied the knowledge of the marvels of a Creator.
