Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!
I have gone back and forth in the 1901 census records and have not yet found Michael and his family. The Midleton DED had 39 Lynchs but no Thomas, no Timothy, no teenage Michael etc.
Did he come into Ellis Island? If so, have you checked the Ellis Island records www.ellisisland.org There should be a page which shows his contact in Ireland and where they lived.
