     She was born on 30 May 1830 at Ireland according to the 1901 census.2 Alternatively, she may have been born in 1825 according to a less well documented source.1 Sara married John Lynch on 16 July 1859 at Clarendon, Québec, Canada.1
     Sara Strong died on 5 June 1915 at St. Patrick's Home, Ottawa, Carleton County, Ontario, Canada, according to Ontario Death Registration 010150.3 Alternatively, she died on 5 May 1913 according to a less well documented source.1

     In the obituary of William Michael Lynch who died 23 March 1942, his parents, John Lynch and Mrs. John Lynch were listed or implied as predeceased.5
     The following analysis is from my personal research and reflects my attempts to consolidate information from different sources.
The Ontario Death database on ANcestry.com does not include a Sara Lynch that died in 1913. Since 05 May and 05 June are so similar, I suspect that the above primary death date is for this individual, despite the 2 year+ difference in date.3

     He was born on 18 August 1895 at Northcote, Admaston Twp., Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada, according to Ontario Birth Registration 032977.5,3,7 Alternatively, he may have been born on 17 August 1895 at Northcote, Admaston Twp., Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada, according to his Military Medical record, Card D2; or, on 18 August 1896 at Ontario, Canada, according to the 1901 census.6
     Thomas Clifford Briscoe died on 27 June 1917 at France at age 21 whenhe was killed in action "during the advance on AVION, this non-commisioned officer was one of the first to reach the objectives, but at that moment was instantly killed by enemy shell fire."
     The following is from his Find A Grave memorial page:
Born on the Family Farm. Thomas was the 7th child of of James A Briscoe and Alice Adeline Beach.
     Note: All the records spell his last name as Briscoe but his parents & siblings, spell it as Brisco
     ***
     Sergeant J Billings, of TCB's company, wrote of his buddie's death to the Renfrew Journal:
     "We had orders to go forward on the morning of the 26th and take a French village, which we did with slight losses. On the morning of the 28th, at 2:30 am, we received orders again to advance and take another village, when Sgt. Briscoe got into the trench OK but as usual, Fritz, after being driven out, put a carage on the line he left and, as they were all heavy shells, one of them burst close to Sgt. Briscoe, and he was instantly killed by concussion. Now, what I wish to convey to the people of Renfrew is that no braver boy left Renfrew, nor a more thorough gentleman. He was liked by all who knew him or came in contact with him. I was in his platoon in Canada and here. I was his 2nd Sgt here, and words cannot express my sympathy for such a friend. He was one of the many boys of Renfrew who made good over here. He was decorated here for bravery which he welll earned, and in my opinion should have received the DCM. He was also recommended for a commission in the Battalion for his good work here. ***** Believe me, No 1 Platoon will avenge Sgt Briscoe's death. We buried him four miles back of the firing line in a well-kept soldier's graveyard, along with many other Canadian boys. The officers and non-commisioned officers and men of A Co 38th Battalion, join in sending their deepest sympathy to the friends and parents of a true soldier and a gentleman."
     Notes by Rick Moffat: the memorial stone erected in the Rosebank Cemetery gives his date of death as one day later, 28 June 1917. It also incorrectly spells Avion as Avon. See his Death event for other sources for this information.10,11,12,13
     Thomas Clifford Briscoe was buried at La Chaudiere Military Cemetery, Vimy, Pas de Calais, France, remembered with honour.4
Thomas Clifford Briscoe is also remembered on a gravemarker at Rosebank United Church Cemetery (Lot 22, Conc 1), Admaston Twp., Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada.14,15
     
Canadian Military Service:

     Thomas Clifford Briscoe began military service on 24 November 1915 at the age of 20 years, 3 months and 6 days at Renfrew, Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada, joining the 130th Battalion. On his enlistment papers.2
     On 1 December 1915, at Renfrew, Horton Twp., Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada, Clifford was taken on strength to the 130th Battalion.
     According to his military examination records of Jan 7, 1916 he was a merchant, 5' 5 1/2" height and 140 lbs. In another form he is listed as having brown eyes and black hair.
     His unit sailed from Halifax on the S. S. Lapland on Sep 23, 1916. His overseas pay records commence Oct 1, 1916. They disembarked at Liverpool on Oct 6th.
     He was transferred to 12 Res Battalion (12 Res Bn) on the same date.
     On Nov 24th, 1916, Clifford was promoted to Sergeant.
     Then he was transferred to the 38th Battalion (38th Bn) on Dec 1st, 1916.2
     On 26 March 1917, at France, he was awarded the Military Medal for Bravery in the Field., with the following citation:
For conspicuous gallantry on early morning of 26th March 1917 near SOUCHEZ.
     The enemy blew a camouflet at 5.20 a.m. and broke into one of our Mining Shafts. The force of the explosion burst in the sides of a dug-out near one of the Mine galleries. Twenty men were in the dug-out when the explosion occurred. Three of these managed to make their way out but the remainder were unable to gain the surface.
     About a dozen men were standing in the trench near the dug-out entrance, amongst whom were CPL. RAINFORD, SGT. BRISCOE, PTES. EDWARDS and CAREY. These men, without consideration of their own safety, and also having seen the gas flame rush from the mouth of the dug-out, singeing (sic) the hair and burning the faces of some, entered the dug-out and succeeded in bringing 10 men to the surface. The remaining seven men were found to be killed. These men assisted in the work of resuscitation of those overcome by gas.
     The men rescued were badly burned and gassed and must have been overcome by fumes but for the prompt and gallant action of these men. Some of the rescuers themselves were badly affected by the gas.
     These four men have been selected from the rescuers as being those who rendered the best services.
     There (sic) prompt and gallant action undoubtedly saved the loss of 10 of their comrades and it is considered that they are fully deserving off an Immediate Reward. (A.F.B. 3121. April 18th 1917.)16

     On 5 April 1917, he appears to have been wounded when buried, possibly by an exploding shell. On this date he was admitted to No. 11 Field Ambulance, which was a mobile front line medical unit, with a Contus Buried (wd) (contusion, buried - wound.) The next day he was transfered to No. 13 Field Ambulance. From there, on the 14th, he was transferred to 2 Australian General Hospital (2 Aus Gen) at Wimereux, and on the 19th to 1st Convalescent Depot (1 Con Dep.) Boulogne. He rejoined his unit on May 9, 1917 which was by this time known as the 38th Battalion (formerly the 130th battalion.)2,17,15
