25003 (1) The compiler has not found satisfactory proof of the identity of the parents of Abraham LINDSEY. Abraham LINDSEY is placed here as a son of Edmund LINDSEY and Elizabeth BEASLEY in order to stimulate further research.

(2) Susan Grabek :

Abraham Lindsey was born circa 1723, probably in Cecil County, Maryland. At this time, the parents of Abraham Lindsey are not known. Abraham may have been a son of Edmund Lindsey, Sr. Because Abraham Lindsey was born before Edmond Lindsey married Elizabeth Beasley, he may have been Edmond's son from a prior marriage. At this time, there is no evidence of a prior marriage for Edmond Lindsey, so Abraham's father could have been a different Lindsey male.

Abraham Lindsey owned land on Goose Creek in present day Loudoun County, Virginia for which he received a grant in 1745. He was a member of the Frederick County militia during the French and Indian War. Abraham left the Long Marsh area for South Carolina about 1762. That same year, Abraham obtained a grant for land along the Enoree River in present day Newberry County. Abraham Lindsey sold his Newberry County land in 1783, and he moved to Wilkes County, Georgia. Abraham Lindsey died in Wilkes County about 1824. . . .

Abraham had a son named John (b. abt. 1749), who lived in Laurens Co. SC, then Jackson Co, GA, and who died in Maury Co., TN in 1810. . . .

Another man believed to have been a son of Abraham Lindsey was Isaac Lindsey (b. ca. 1745), who owned land adjacent to Abraham in Newberry County. Isaac Lindsey sold his Newberry County land in 1784, and he moved to York County, South Carolina.

Ezekiel Lindsey, who died in Laurens Co., SC ca. 1784 is also believed to have been a son of Abraham Lindsey. . . .

Abraham Lindsey . . . lived in the same tax district in Wilkes Co. as Jacob Lindsey, Sr. Abraham first paid a poll tax there in 1804, indicating that he was born ca. 1783. Abraham later lived near Jacob Lindsey, Jr. in Jones Co., GA, where Jacob Jr. paid Abraham's property taxes in 1811. Abraham Lindsey and Jacob A. Lindsey were listed together on the 1828 tax list of Monroe Co., GA. Abraham was last on the census in Monroe Co. in 1830. On that census he was listed as between the age of 50-60.

(2) Susan Grabek :

David Lindsey, born by 1728, was . . . an enigmatic figure in the area. He appeared in court on numerous occasions, almost always in litigation. David was in the Frederick Co. militia. He had a wife named Catherine. David may have leased land in the area because he did no citizen duties in Frederick Co. David appeared in a court record with Isaac Lindsey in 1770, indicating that they may have been related. By 1773, David had moved to the area that is now Greenbriar Co., WV. . . . Known children of David Lindsey are Robert, John Valentine, Sarah, Jane, and Rebecca.

Elijah Lindsey, b. by 1766, probably in Frederick Co., VA. Elijah first appeared in Wilkes Co., GA records in 1787. Elijah died ca. 1815 in Wilkes Co., leaving a widow, Dicey, and sons named John, Jacob, James, and Archibald. Elijah also had a daughter who married William Andres. . . .

Elijah Lindsey's father is believed to have been Jacob Lindsey Sr. of Frederick Co., VA and Wilkes Co., GA. . . .However, this relationship between Elijah Lindsey and Jacob Lindsey Sr. has not been proved.

25009 (1) The compiler has not found satisfactory proof of the identity of the parents of Hezekiah LINDSEY.

(2) Susan Grabek :

Hezekiah Lindsay b. 1747 Pennsylvania, d. February 16, 1826 Clermont County, New Richmond, Ohio. Hezekiah Lindsay married Eliza Fisher d. ? Clermont County, New Richmond, Ohio.

Hezekiah Lindsey's name appeared on a 1770 deed in Frederick Co., VA. He was named as a co-owner of a tract of land along with Edmund Lindsey, Jr. Hezekiah lived in the Fort Pitt area during the Revolutionary War, where he served as a soldier in both the Virginia and Pennsylvania regiments. Hezekiah's marriage to Eliza Fisher is a speculation that has never been proved. 
LINDSEY, Hezekiah (I39868)
 
25010 (1) The compiler has not found satisfactory proof of the identity of the parents of Isaac LINDSEY.

According to Susan Grabek :

We now have proof that Isaac Lindsey of York County, South Carolina was the father of Jacob Lindsey of Cobb County, Georgia. Jacob's wife, Elizabeth, applied for a widow's pension for Jacob's military service. In her application Elizabeth stated that she and Jacob were married in York County, South Carolina in 1813 by John Lindsey, a minister of the Gospel. Now we need to find proof that Isaac Lindsey was a son of Abraham Lindsey of Newberry County.

(3) Susan Grabek :

Isaac Lindsey [ca. 1745 - 183?] may . . . have been the father of Elisha Lindsey (ca. 1772-1820) of Spartanburg County, and the grandfather of Jacob Lindsey (ca. 1812-1880) of Spartanburg County. . . .

Isaac Lindsey received a grant for land in York County in 1784. He may have been the same man who had lived in Newberry County previously. An Isaac Lindsey received a grant for land in Newberry County in 1768 on Foster's Creek, a tributary of the Enoree River. Isaac Lindsey sold this land in Newberry County in 1785, so the timing is right for him to have been the same man who began to appear in York County records in 1785.

Abraham Lindsey of Newberry County owned land adjoining Isaac's land on Foster's Creek. Abraham Lindsey sold his land in Newberry County in 1783 and moved to Wilkes County, Georgia, where he died ca. 1824. Because Abraham and Isaac Lindsey lived next to each other in Newberry County, it would seem that they were close relatives, possibly father and son as I have hypothesized.

The names of Isaac Lindsey's wife and children are known from the 1817 York County will of Isaac's son, John Lindsey. . . . Isaac Lindsey of York County was married to Rachel. Isaac and Rachel had children named John (ca. 1772-1817), Elisha (ca. 1772-1820), Jacob (ca. 1788-1838), David (ca. 1790-1815), Druscilla (ca. 1780-?), Edy (ca. 1785-1853), and Fanna (ca. 1785-184?). Other Lindsey's who lived in York County who appear to have been closely related to Isaac Lindsey were Archibald Lindsey (ca. 1788 - 1860) and Ellender Lindsey (ca. 1790-?). Archibald Lindsey may have been a nephew of Isaac and Rachel Lindsey. Ellender may have been the widow of David Lindsey, a son of Isaac and Rachel Lindsey who died in 1815 while on military duty, or she may have been Archibald Lindsey's sister.

From John Lindsey's 1817 will and his probate record, it is known that Edy Lindsey married William Parker, Druscilla Lindsey married Thomas Wilson, and Fanna Lindsey married Thomas Putman. John Lindsey is buried in the Martin family burial ground in Cherokee County, as is his wife, Mary Lindsey, who died in 1816. Jacob Lindsey married Elizabeth Allen ca. 1812-1813 (per Elizabeth Lindsey's widow's pension file). Elisha Lindsey's wife was named Susannah.

Isaac Lindsey appeared in York County records from 1785-1820. He may have moved to Hall County, Georgia sometime after the 1820 census. An Isaac Lindsey of Hall County, Revolutionary War veteran, won land in the 1832 lottery. Jacob Lindsey, who lived in the same militia district in Hall County as Isaac Lindsey, also won land in the 1832 lottery. My guess is that Isaac and Jacob Lindsey were the father and son who had earlier lived in York Co., South Carolina. Isaac's lottery land reverted back to the state, so he must not have completed the paperwork to finalize his ownership. Perhaps Isaac died at about the time of the lottery. To date, no probate records have been found for Isaac Lindsey. There is a Revolutionary War file for Isaac Lindsey at the South Carolina Archives, but the file is empty. Bobby Gilmer Moss's book on South Carolina patriots does not list an Isaac Lindsey, so it seems that no record of Isaac Lindsey's Revolutionary War service exists, although he most certainly would have served as a soldier during the war. Isaac Lindsey has been a difficult man to pin down in records after 1820.

Elisha Lindsey, b. ca. 1772, a probable son of Isaac Lindsey, purchased land in Spartanburg County in 1794. He lived in Spartanburg County until 1819, when he died. Elisha Lindsey's probate record showed that he had a wife named Susannah and sons named Isaac, John, Jacob, and Elisha. Elisha Lindsey had daughters named Susannah, Elizabeth, Sarah, and El. Information from Lee family researcher, Margaret Beheler Jay, states that three of Elisha Lindsey's children married three of the children of John Watts Lee (b. ca. 1765 -1770) and his wife, Elizabeth Lands: Richard Lee married Sarah/Sally Lindsey, and Jeremiah Lee married Elizabeth Lindsey. Ms. Beheler's work also states that Susan Lee married a Lindsey. Researcher Scott Jones has determined that Susan Lee married Elisha Lindsey's son, John Lindsey.

(4) Susan Grabek :

Jacob Lindsey b. April 8, 1812 Spartanburg Co., SC, d. aft. 1860 Athens, Clarke Co., Georgia. It is believed, but not proved, that Jacob Lindsey was the son of Elisha Lindsey, b. ca. 1772 SC, d. 1819 Spartanburg Co., SC. Elisha Lindsey's probate record listed a wife, Susannah, and children named Isaac, John, Jacob, Elisha, Elizabeth, Susannah, Sally, and El. Jacob Lindsey married Nancy Hart. Jacob and Nancy Hart Lindsey had children named Susan, Elisha, Joseph S., Martha Ann, James K., William, Commodore R., John, Benjamin, Mary, George Wilson, Morgan M., and Elvira. L0018 descends from Commodore Lindsey.

The 1860 census for Spartanburg Co., SC listed Jacob Lindsey as J. L. Lindsey, age 47. Living with Jacob were his wife, Nancy (b. ca. 1819), and children named Susan (b. ca. 1836), Martha (b. ca. 1841 ), James (b. ca. 1843 ), William (b. ca. 1845), Commander (b. ca. 1847), John (b. ca. 1849), Benjamin (b. ca. 1852), Wilson (b. ca. 1853), and Mary (b. ca. 1855). Additional children of Jacob Lindsey from family tree information at Rootsweb (database penny0608) are sons named Elisha b. ca. 1838, Joseph S. b. ca. 1839, George W. b. 1860, and Morgan M. b. 1862. An additional daughter from family tree information is Elvira b. ca. 1857.

In 1965, Martin Van Buren Lindsey (b. 1879, a grandson of Jacob Lindsey) made a complete listing of Jacob Lindsey's family record. Martin listed Jacob Lindsey, borned April 8th, 1812, and wife Nancy Hart, borned Nov. 6th, 1819. Martin gave their marriage date as about 1834. Then he listed their children and their birthdates: Susan Lindsey - 12 Mar 1836, Elisha Lindsey - 7 Apr 1838, Joseph S. Lindsey - 7 Mar 1839, Martha Lindsey - 8 Jun 1841, James K Lindsey - 8 Apr 1843, Wm. K. Lindsey - 1 Dec 1844, C. R. Lindsey - 8 Sep 1846, Jno. H. Lindsey - 15 Jan 1848, Ben. J. P. Lindsey - 8 Feb 1850, A. W. Lindsey - 12 Mar 1852, Mary Lindsey - 22 Jan 1854, Elvira Lindsey - 21 Feb 1857, G. W. Lindsey - 20 Jul 1860, M. M. Lindsey - 22 Jun 1862.

25011 (1) The compiler has not found satisfactory proof of the identity of the parents of Jacob LINDSEY.

(2) Susan Grabek :

Jacob Lindsey, b. ca. 1780-1790 South Carolina, d. ca. 1838 Cobb Co., GA. Jacob married Elizabeth, b. ca. 1798 in SC. Children of Jacob and Elizabeth Lindsey included David, b. 1815 SC; Lawson H., b. ca. 1820 SC; Jackson J., b. ca. 1831 GA; Green Augustus, b. ca. 1838 GA; and a daughter Lucinda, b. ca. 1827, who married Lawson Kiser. . . .

Jacob Lindsey may have been a son of Isaac Lindsey of York Co., SC. Jacob was named as a brother of John Lindsey in his 1817 York Co. will. In the will, John also named Elisha as a brother, and he named Isaac and Rachel as his parents.

(2) Susan Grabek :

John Lindsey b. 1847 Texas, d. ca 1906 Lincoln Parish, Vienna, Louisiana.

John Lindsey may have been a son of Thomas Lindsey, b. ca. 1826. Thomas Lindsey was enumerated on the 1860 census for Cass Co., TX. Among the children of Thomas on the census was a son listed as J. Lindsey, age 9. Thomas Lindsey died in 1862 near Bastrop Parish, LA. Thomas was a son of John Lindsey, b. ca. 1777. . . .

25013 (1) The compiler has not found satisfactory proof of the identity of the parents of Joshua LINDSEY.

(2) Susan Grabek :

Joshua Lindsey b. 1799 Kentucky, d. bef. 1855 White County, Indiana, married Sarah (Sally) Johnson, March 8, 1823 in Lawrence Illinois. The children of Joshua Lindsey & Sarah Johnson were Sally, Martha, Mary, John, Elizabeth, Louisa, Joshua, George M., Samuel and William Tipton Lindsey.

The parents of Joshua Lindsey are believed to have been Joshua Lindsey Sr. (b. about 1770) and Elizabeth Findley (b. 1773). Elizabeth's father was John Findley, a Revolutionary War soldier who lived in the Fort Pitt area of present day Pittsburgh. It is thought that Joshua Sr. must have met and married Elizabeth in the Fort Pitt area before migrating to Kentucky about 1791. The family moved to Indiana about 1800, where Joshua died in Jackson County ca. 1818. 
LINDSEY, Joshua Sr (I39870)
 
25014 (1) The compiler has not found satisfactory proof of the identity of the parents of Stephen LINDSEY.

(2) Susan Grabek :

Stephen Lindsey b. ca 1775 Virginia, d. Sept. 7, 1864 Fulton County, Illinois, married Rachel Reynolds Dec. 1798 in Campbell County, Kentucky. The children of Stephen Lindsey & Rachel Reynolds were, Nathan (b. circa 1802 KY), James (died circa age 18), Jonah (b. Ohio), Jacob, Phoebe (m. Mr. Lovell), Reuben, Stephen, Hannah (m. Mr. Stoops) & Hezekiah. The migration path for Stephen Lindsey (1775 VA - 1864 IL) was his marriage and time in Campbell County, Kentucky to Clermont County, Ohio to Fulton County, Illinois. In an October 17, 1843 deposition by Stephen Lindsey (1775 VA - 1864 IL), he states, in 1782, he went to live, at age 7 or 8, with his maternal aunt, Ruth Beasley Dollar & her husband William Dollar, in Berkeley County, Virginia. Inferring the maiden name of Beasley, for the mother of Stephen Lindsey, provides a possibly connection to Edmond Lindsey (Long Marsh-now Clarke County, Virginia Lindseys), b. 1697 who married Elizabeth Beasley in Baltimore Co. MD in 1724. This could imply that Edmond Lindsey & Elizabeth Beasley were the grandparents or great-uncle/aunt of Stephen Lindsey.

25015 (1) The compiler has not found satisfactory proof of the identity of the parents of Thomas Jefferson LINDSEY. Thomas Jefferson LINDSEY is placed here as a son of Jacob LINDSEY, Sr. and Elizabeth ABRELL in order to stimulate further research.

(2) Susan Grabek :

Thomas Jefferson Lindsey b. Jan. 21, 1791 Wilkes County, Georgia, d. Oct. 2, 1861 Brownsboro, Texas, m. Bathsheba Sudduth. It is believed that the father of Thomas Jefferson Lindsey was Jacob Lindsey (1740-1818) who married Elizabeth Abrell.

Thomas Lindsey moved from Wilkes Co., GA to Tuscaloosa Co., Alabama in the early 1820's, before moving on to Mississippi and later to Texas, where he died.

It is possible that Thomas Lindsey was the son of Thomas Lindsey Sr., born circa 1766, a Revolutionary War soldier from South Carolina who died in Wilkes Co., GA before 1820 leaving a widow Mary, and children named Thomas, Abraham, William, Phoebe, Elizabeth, Charlotte, Rhoda, and Mary. Several of the children of Thomas Lindsey Sr. moved to Tuscaloosa Co., Alabama, including Abraham, Phoebe, Rhoda, and Mary, who all married in Tuscaloosa Co. Abraham Lindsey married Mary Traweek in 1829, Phoebe Lindsey married James Suddeth in 1847, Rhoda Lindsey married Cornelius Roberts in 1828, and Mary Lindsey married Richard Files in Tuscaloosa Co. in 1828. In 1830, the heirs of Thomas Lindsey Sr., asked Thomas Lindsey of Tuscaloosa Co. to act as their agent to sell lottery land in Troup Co., GA for them. Thomas might have been one of the heirs, himself.

(2) Susan Grabek :

There is speculation that Thomas [Lindsey] may have been the son of Edmund Lindsey Sr. (b. 1697). Because Thomas sometimes signed his name Thomas Jr. there is also speculation that he was the son of a man named Thomas Lindsey who lived in Cecil Co., MD.

(3) Susan Grabek :

Thomas Lindsey may have been a son of Edmond Lindsey, Sr. He was a constable, juryman, and road overseer in Frederick Co. Thomas married first Mary, and second, Elizabeth. Thomas Lindsey sometimes signed his name Thomas Jr. despite being the oldest known Thomas Lindsey in the county. Thomas died in 1769. His will named his wife, Elizabeth, and children John, Thomas, Abraham, James, and Mary Turner. Thomas' will also named his sons-in-law Nathaniel Barrett (married to Abigail Lindsey), and Richard Allen (married to Nancy Lindsey). A book about Thomas Lindsey was written by Ferrell A. Brown. . . .

Thomas Lindsey's son, John (b. 1746), married Sarah Abrell, the sister of Elizabeth Abrell (married to Jacob Lindsey Sr.). John and Sarah Lindsey moved to Pickaway Co., Ohio about 1811. Some of their sons migrated to Pickaway Co. with them. . . .

(4) Lindsay, Margaret Isabella, The Lindsays of America, Albany, NY: Joel Munsell's Sons, 1889, p. 229:

BERRYVILLE.

(Clark[e] County, formerly Frederick County.)

From the tradition in this family of its ancestry, I am strongly led to believe that it is connected in a collateral way with the Northumberland and Fairfax Lindsays. The tradition is that in 1740, two brothers, Thomas and John Lindsay, removed from some part of the lower Potomac, possibly Northumberland, and bought and settled here an immense tract of land known then, as now, as Longmarsh, and were called wealthy farmers of the Shenandoah valley, and that they had a sister who married a Hierome Lindsay Opie, an ancestor, probably, of the Hierome Lindsay Opie who owned a large and elegant farm near Berryville in 1850.

These said two brothers were contemporary with Robert Lindsay of Northumberland, who removed from there and settled in Fairfax county about 1743, and it is barely possible that the three were brothers, sons of the one father, Opie Lindsay of Northumberland.

(5) O'Dell, Cecil, Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia, Marceline, MO: Walsworth Publishing Company, 1995, pp. 215-216:

Thomas Lindsay (b. 1720 c., probably a son of Edmond) had purchased 300 acres from [Nathaniel] Daugherty by 1748. On 16 April 1751, he acquired 345 acres from his attorney John Lindsay. He received a Fairfax grant for 255 acres on 22 November 1754. He willed this land (located on Little Cacapon in Hampshire County) to his son James, who was under 20 years of age. He received one other Fairfax grant on 27 July 1761 for 318 acres located on Long Marsh Run, adjacent north of the 860-acre survey. . . . This land is located on Clarke County Highway 611 and 639. Thomas and his wife Elizabeth sold 89 acres of the 318 acres to Edmond Lindsay Jr. on 1 November 1765 for 20 pounds. He willed the remaining 574 acres from his Long Marsh Run land to his sons John, Thomas Jr. and Abraham Lindsay.

Thomas Sr. was deceased by 6 August 1769 when his will (written 1 May 1769) was proved in Frederick County Court. He left horses to his son-in-law Nathaniel Barrett and son-in-law Richard Allen.

He also left 20 pounds to his daughter Mary Turner living in Carolina. His wife Elizabeth and son John Lindsay were named executors. The witnesses to the will were George Hampton, Jacob Larew, Thomas Blakemore and Jacob Lindsey.

Thomas Lindsay Jr. received two Fairfax grants on 30/31 March 1761. One was for 399 acres on Opequon Creek in present-day Jefferson County, and the other for 405 acres across the Opequon and west in Berkeley County, West Virginia. . . . The Berkeley County tract is on Silver Springs Run and Speck's Run. . . . In 1763 and 1764, Thomas and his wife Mary sold this land in four 200-acre parcels to Mercer Babb, Thomas Green, Isaac Lindsay and Benjamin Blackburn for 100 pounds each. The four men each received land on both sides of Opequon Creek.

THE LINDSEYS . . .

THOMAS LINDSEY. It is thought that he was born a. 1721 in Virginia. His will was dated 21 May, 1769 and probated 1 August, 1769 in Frederick County, Virginia. He m. (1) a. 1743 to Mary Frost, b. 1723 in Clarke Co., Va., d. 28 May, 17___ in Frederick Co., Va., m. (2) to Elizabeth _____ a. 1765. He died __ July, 1769.

Children of Thomas and Mary, surname LINDSEY: . . .

i. Mary . . .

ii. John, b. 6 August, 1716 . . .

iii. A daughter . . .

iv. A daughter . . .

v. Abraham, b. 25 May, 1750 . . .

vi. Thomas . . .

vii. James, b. 20 April, 1759

Thomas Lindsey lived in that part of Frederick County (now Clarke County) Virginia on Longmarsh, a branch of the Shenandoah River where his children were born.

The Longmarsh Section is in the northwest corner of Clarke County near the West Virginia line. There is at this time a voting precinct called Longmarsh.

There is nothing in the records of Frederick County, Virginia, to show where Thomas Lindsey lived prior to coming to Frederick County.

Our family history says, "Our older Lindseys lived on the Rappahannock, near the Potomac, in Northumberland County, Virginia."

From the Frederick County records, we find the first mention of Thomas Lindsey was where he was made constable in 1744.

There is is a Presbyterian church near the headwater of Bull Skin that is near Summit, West Virginia, and Thomas Lindsey was once appointed overseer of the road from the head of Bull Skin to Pennington Marsh.

We know nothing of the appearance or characteristics of Thomas Lindsey, but a description of his first wife, Mary Frost, has come down to us.

"She was remarkable for her beauty, her heavy suite of raven black hair which came to the calves of her legs, her very white complexion and wondrous dark eyes. She was of Welsh descent."

It has been said that the dark eyes of our branch of Lindseys came down from the Frosts. Lindseys are usually blue or gray eyed.

DEEDS

Deed Book 2, Frederick Co., Va., April 16,1751.

John Lindsey to Thomas Lindsey, tract of certain parcel of land being part of a tract of land patent bearing date 2 day April, 1751.

Granted to John Lindsey, adjoining Edmund Lindsey on north side of Long Marsh, containing 345 acres.

Deed Book 8, p. 231. Feb. 27,1763.

Land: Lease on both sides of Opeckon Creek, part of Thornas Lindsey grant.

Thomas Lindsey to Mercer Babbs, signed by Thomas Lindsey, Jr., and Mary his wife. Witnesses none. Release not signed Jr.

Deed Book 8, p. 235. Feb. 27,1763.

Land: Lease on both sides of Opeckon Creek, part of Thomas Lindsey grant.

Thomas Lindsey to Thomas Green, signed by Thomas Lindsey and Mary his wife.

Deed Book 8, p. 239. Feb. 27, 1763.

Land: Lease on both sides of Opeckon Creek, part of Thomas Lindsey grant.

Thomas Lindsey to Isaac Lindsey, signed by Thomas Lindsey and Mary his wife.

Deed Book 9, p. 340. June 8, 1764.

Land: Lease on both sides of Opeckon Creek, part of Thomas Lindsey grant.

Thomas Lindsey to Benjamin Blackburn, signed by Thomas Lindsey, Jr., and Mary his wife. Witnesses: John McMackin, Joseph Edwards, Jr., Henry Heth, and Geo. Myles. Release also signed Thomas Lindsey, Jr.

Deed Book 11, p. 69. Nov. 1, 1765.

Land: Lease 89 acres (part of 318 acre grant to Thomas Lindsey).

Thomas Lindsey, Sr., to Edmund Lindsey, Jr., signed by Thomas Lindsey and Elizabeth, his wife. Witnesses: Thos. Speake, Jas. Lindsey, and Wm. Bennet.

It proved by the these deeds that Thomas Lindsey had two wives. He was married to Mary Frost, a. 1743. Mary wife of Thomas, was alive June 8, 1764, but died before November 1, 1765 as Thomas had wife Elizabeth at that time.

He signed his name Lindsey at all times. He signed his name Thomas Lindsey, Jr., in two deeds by which it might be inferred his father's name was also Thomas. In that day and time, however, this was not necessarily so.

Two hundred years ago, the term Senior and Junior did not as a rule imply the relationship of father and son. The men had as a rule only one given name and there were often several men in a town with exactly the same name.

In order to distinguish one from another the another in the group assumed the title Senior, the others Junior, 3rd, 4th etc.

When Senior died, Junior changed his name to Senior. In this mix-up George Clarke. Jr., might have a son Henry Clarke, Sr.

So it seems, Thomas, even though he signed Junior after his name may not have the same given name as his father.

However I have wondered if Thomas Edmund Lindsey (usually written Edmund) first found in Frederick County, Virginia, in 1733 may not have been our Thomas' father.

There is nothing in the Frederick County records, to prove relationship of the Lindseys first found in Frederick County: Edmond or Edmund, John, James, Thomas, Isaac or Abraham.

LAND GRANTS

1754 - Book "H", p. 583. Frederick Co., Va., Nov. 28, 1754.

To Thomas Lindsey, land in Hampshire Co., on both sides of Little Cacapehon, 255 acres.

1761 - Book "K", P. 262. Frederick Co., Va., March 30, 1761.

To Thomas Lindsey of Frederick County, 399 acres in Hampshire Co., on west side of Opeckon Creek.

1761 - Frederick Co., Va., July 27, 1761.

To Thomas Lindsey of Frederick County, 318 acres on Long Marsh, a branch of the Shenandoah River.

GRANTS

Part of a survey of land containing more than a thousand acres granted by Fairfax to John Lindsey in April, 1751 and conveyed by Lindsey to his eldest son Thomas in the same month and year.

The part conveyed to Thomas Lindsey contained 345 acres. Other parts of the whole survey were conveyed by John Lindsey in the same year to James and Edmund Lindsey, brothers of Thomas, to Isaac Larue and in 1756 to Speake.

A smaller tract of 245 acres granted by Lord Fairfax to John Lindsey in 1762 was also conveyed to his son Thomas. This smaller tract adjoined the 345 acre tract on the South and adjoined George William Fairfax's land.

Thomas Lindsey died in July, 1769. In December, 1784 the eldest son John Lindsey and Abraham his brother sold to Albion Throckmorton of Berkeley Co., W. Va., 294 acres described as adjoining Isaac Larue and Warner Washington.

Albion Throckmorton was a son-in-law of Warner Washington, Sr., having married Mildred Washington.

Since it has been proved by records that the same John Lindsey, Gent. moved to Berkeley County, South Carolina, and left his will there dated August 9, 1783, proved September 6, 1787 and left a living son, Thomas, it would appear that Mr. Curtis Chappelear was in error in stating Thomas who died in July, 1769, was the son of John Lindsey.

It seems almost certain that John was a brother of Thomas although there is a possibility John may have been Thomas' uncle. John and Abraham, brothers mentioned in the Historical Society of Clark County, Virginia, Vol. viiii were sons of Thomas, will of 1769.

Among those giving military and material aid to the Frederick Co., Va. Militia (French-Indian War 1759-1763) were Thomas Lindsey 4 S; Isaac Lindsey 39 S; and Thomas Lindsey and Isaac Lindsey 9 S each.

In the Colonial Wars in Frederick Co., Va. "were Thomas Lindsey, Capt. John Lindsey, John Lindsey, Abraham Lindsey, James Lindsey, Edmund (also Edmond or Edward) Lindsey and Isaac Lindsey."

In the militia records for September 2, 1755, Isaac Lindsey was listed in Capt. Thomas Speake's Co., Thomas Lindsey, Jr., Abraham Lindsey, John Lindsey, Jr., and Edmund Lindsey, Jr., were in Capt. John Hardin's Co., and David Lindsey in Marquis Calmes [sic] Company.

In the Virginia Colonial Militia lists Edward Linsey, Frederick Co. Va., Sept. 1758, Isaac Linsey, Frederick Co., Va., Sept. 1758 and Thomas Linsey, Frederick Co., Va., Sept 1758.

In Cartmell's History of Old Frederick County lists as 'minute men' of Frederick Co., Va., 1758 Edward Linsey, Isaac Linsey and Thomas Linsey.

The Allens, Barretts and Turners were all found in the James City Co., section during he time of John Lindsey of James City County (1660's); also the Alexanders, Byrans, Martins and Rosses were in Frederick Co., Virginia during John and Thomas Lindsey's time of residence there, which may indicate the Lindseys came from this section.

SOME DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS LINDSEY (CA. 1721/1769) AND HIS WIFE, THE FORMER MARY FROST

Lindsey-Lindsay

NOTE: Emily Lindsay (Mrs. James Beemer Lindsay) tells me that her husband and his two brothers, and their families used the "ay" spelling as did George Winston Lindsay (grandson of Dr. James and Sarah Berry Lindsey) and his family.

She further tells me that these early users of the "ay" spelling were advised that it was the proper Scottish spelling (as opposed to the English "ey" spelling), and it was their understanding that their Lindsey-Lindsay forbears came from Scotland.

Thomas Lindsey (ca. 1721-1769) (Fdk. Co. WB 3/502). It is believed that he was of the second generation of Lindseys to live in Frederick County, and that the Lindseys either came from Northumberland County, Virginia, or from Pennsylvania. He m. (1st.)

LINDSEY, Thomas Sr. (I9241)
 
25017 (1) The compiler has not found satisfactory proof of the identity of the parents of Thomas LINDSEY.

(2) Susan Grabek :

Thomas Lindsey b. 1768 Montgomery County, Georgia, d. 1816 Kennaesaw, Georgia, buried Cook County, Georgia; married 1794, Hester Ann Clark (April 13, 1774 GA - July 4, 1874 Cook County, GA).

Thomas Lindsey may have been the son of Thomas Lindsey Senior, who petitioned for land in present day Burke County, Georgia in 1767. Thomas Lindsey Sr. died by 1784. His widow, Elizabeth, continued to live in Burke County, and received a grant for land there in 1794. Other Lindsey's found in Burke County in the 1790's were Thomas, Benjamin, and Kier. Thomas and Benjamin Lindsey of Burke County both won land in the the 1807 lottery, along with Martha Lindsey, who may have been the widow of Kier Lindsey.

Kier Lindsey might actually have been named Kiah (nickname for Hezekiah). It is possible that Thomas, Benjamin, and Kier Lindsey of Burke County may also have been Thomas, Benjamin and Hezekiah Lindsey, sons of Thomas Lindsey, who owned land in Wilkes County, Georgia in 1777. Thomas Lindsey died, and his heirs, Thomas, Benjamin, and Hezekiah Lindsey, and Elizabeth Lindsey Jenkins, brought a lawsuit in 1792 to recover the land that their father had owned in Wilkes County.

25025 (1) The compiler is not convinced that Anne PECK's husband was the Abraham FROST who was a son of William FROST. The latter Abraham FROST was in America no later than 1639, when he accompanied his father, William FROST, to Uncoway (Fairfield, CT). If the latter Abraham FROST married Anne PECK on 29 May 1651 at St. Peter's, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England, he would have to have gone from America to England for the marriage, and thereafter returned from England to America.

(2) If Anne PECK's husband was the Abraham FROST who was a son of William FROST, she probably died before June 30, 1684, when Abraham FROST and his wife Susan were witnesses to the sale of land. See Frost, Josephine C., The Frost Genealogy, New York, NY: F. H. Hitchcock, 1912, pp. 335-336:

Oct. 17, 1681, buys woodland of Harmon Jonson, in Hempstead. April 9, 1685, sells the same, and wife Susan signs. March 9, 1693-4, Susan Frost, Isaac Frost, and John Hendricke sell to John Foster part of fifty acres purchased by "her husband Abraham Frost" of William Thickston, located in Foster's meadows. June 30, 1684, Abraham and Susan witness to sale of land.

[Note by compiler: As of 30 June 1684, this Abraham FROST's wife was named Susan, not Anne.]

STARNES, Ella Minnie (I40313)
 
25027 (1) The compiler knows of no direct evidence that Charles Claiborne STARNES was a son of Peter STARNES, Sr. However, the compiler's working hypothesis is that Charles Claiborne STARNES was a son of Peter STARNES, Sr. See also Note (10), below. It is not clear whether Claiborne was C. C.'s first name or his middle name. Since C. C. is listed as Charles STARNES in the 1870 census of the 7th District of Coffee County, TN, and since other members of C. C.'s family went by their middle names, the compiler has chosen to list C. C. as Charles Claiborne STARNES.

(2) Biographical Souvenir of the State of Texas, Chicago, IL: F. A. Battey & Co., 1889, p. 786:

Clayborn C. [STARNES] was born June 22, 1810, in Tennessee, where he has resided all his life, now living near Hillsboro, and following farming. He is a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church and a man beloved by all who know him. He was well off when the [Civil] war broke out, but suffered heavy losses during those troublous times. He served a short time in the Confederate army. His wife, Elizabeth Douglas, was born in Tennessee and died there, the mother of eleven children.

(3) A household headed by Claburn STARNES is listed in the 1840 census of Coffee County, TN. [The compiler believes that Claburn was Charles Claiborne STARNES.]

Listed in Claburn's household are 1 free white male under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; 2 free white females under 5 years of age; 1 free white female between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

Assuming that Claburn is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born sometime between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1840 census.

Assuming that Claburn's wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age in 1840, she would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1840 census. According to Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1983, p. 694, this person was Elizabeth STARNES.

The free white female who is listed in the 1840 census as then being between 15 and 20 years of age might have then been too old to have been a daughter of Claburn and/or his wife. According to Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1983, p. 694, this female was Martha Ann STARNES.

Assuming that the other persons in Claburn's household are children of Claburn and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 2 sons (1 of which sons would have been born between 1835 and 1840, and 1 of which sons would have been born between 1830 and 1835, according to the 1840 census) and 2 daughters (which daughters would have been born between 1835 and 1840, according to the 1840 census).

According to Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1983, p. 694, the son who was born between 1835 and 1840 was James STARNES.

According to Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1983, p. 694, the son who was born between 1830 and 1825 was Thomas STARNES.

According to Starnes, H. Gerald & Starnes, Herman, Of Them That Left a Name Behind - A History of the Starnes Family, Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1983, p. 694, the 2 daughters who were born between 1835 and 1840 were Edith and Mary STARNES.

My Father's side of the family -

Grandfather Bishop's name was Jonathan. Lived in Virginia. Had 4 children - Jonathan - Lewis - Mary and Buckhanan. Lewis was my father. He moved to Ind. about 1812. His family consisted of 11 children - Elizabeth, Joseph, Nancy, Jonathan, William, James, Lewis, John, Maryann, Hiram and Oliver. Father moved to Jansan (Johnson) county, Indiana from near Brookville, Indiana in 1820. Settled on Blue River and cleared a farm; and sister Elizabeth was married to James Whited and moved to Shelby county.

While we lived on the farm at this time Father layed out a town and called it Edinburg; and built a large log house and kept a tavern. Joseph learned the cabinet trade in town. And about this time Father got sick with fever and died Sept 28 1828 and Oct 1 1828 Mother died and left 9 living children, all single but Elizabeth. Oliver was a baby 6 months old.

Brother Joseph professed religion and united with the M. E. Church and went to preaching and moved to Illinois and died. He left a large family and most of them live there yet.

JAMES H. EMERSON - W.C. 30552

The data which follow in regard to James H. Emerson were obtained from the claims for pension and bounty land on file under W.C. 30552, based upon his service in the War of 1812. The name of this officer is shown as Harvey Emerson on one military document. He stated that his name was James Harry (or Harvey) Emerson and that he was usually designated and known by his middle name. His middle name was not written plainly by the clerk, so it cannot be determined whether it was Harry or Harvey in this case.

James H. Emerson volunteered in Maury County, Tennessee, and served from December 10, 1812 until April 20, 1813, as 2d sergeant in Captain Benjamin Reynolds' company of Tennessee militia, on the tour to the Natchez Country. He entered service November 13, 1814, as 2d Lieutenant of Captain Bird S. Hurt's company of Tennessee militia and continued to serve until May 13, 1815, when he was discharged at Nashville, Tennessee; during this service, he was in the battle of New Orleans.

He applied February 8, 1851, for the bounty land which was due under the Act of September 28, 1850 on account of his service in the War of 1812. He was then aged fifty-eight years, and resided in Maury County, Tennessee. He was allowed 160 acres of bounty land on warrant #10441. James H. Emerson moved in 1852, from Tennessee to Kentucky.

He was allowed pension on account of his service in the War of 1812, on his application executed April 20, 1871, at which time he resided in Graves County, Kentucky, his post office, Mayfield. This officer died June 16, 1873 in said Graves County.

James H. Emerson married July 18, 1852 [1853?], in Graves County, Kentucky, Dolly Shelby, whose name was formerly Dolly Bowden; they were married by W. A. Bowden, D.D., of Graves County, Kentucky, whose relationship to said Dolly was not stated. The ceremony took place at the home of A. Shelby. Dolly Emerson made the following statement in 1878, which is not very clear, but quoted, as follows: that her "first name was Dolly Bowden she married Reece Shelby & died & She died in 1843 then married to Susan Gilbreth 1844 & She died 1850 in Tenn, 18 - in Graves County & her husband married to Elizabeth Thomas 1813".

Dolly Emerson, the officer's widow, was allowed pension on her application executed July 25, 1878, at which time she resided in Graves County, Kentucky, her post office Lynnville. Dolly Emerson gave her age then as seventy years, but did not state the date and place of her birth, nor designate the names of her parents. She stated also that she resided in Tennessee until 1834, then moved to Kentucky. In 1887, she resided near Fulton, in Graves County, Kentucky, and received her mail at Pilot Oak. One W. A. Shelby of Pilot Oak in 1887, was an old acquaintance of Dolly Emerson.

In 1879, W. A. Bowden, D.D., the Minister who married Dolly Shelby and James H. Emerson, gave his age as sixty-eight years. At that same time, S. A. Bowden, aged fifty-eight years, stated that she was present at that marrIage. One Agness H. Emerson, who gave her age as sixty-two years in 1879, stated that she was present at said marriage also. No relationship between these persons and the family of James H. Emerson and his wife, Dolly, was stated.

If you desire information in regard to the location of the land which was granted James H. Emerson on account of his service in the War of 1812, you should address The Commissioner, General Land Office, this city, and furnish the following bounty land warrant #10441-160 acres, Act of September 28, 1850.

In order to obtain the date of last payment of pension, name of person paid, and, possibly, the date of death of the pensioner, Dolly Emerson, you should apply to The Comptroller General, General Accounting Office, Records Division, this city, and cite the following:

Dolly Emerson, widow of James H. Emerson,

25038 (1) The following three different William LINDSEYs lived in Brunswick County, VA in the 1840s:

• A William who was married to a Jane.

• A William who was married to a Mary.

• A William who was a schoolmaster in Meherrin Parish and apparently died unmarried with no children.

One of the first two William LINDSEYs remained in Brunswick County, VA, dying testate there before 26 September 1768 without mentioning his wife in his will dated 11 May 1766. The compiler believes that this William LINDSEY was the husband of Jane.

The other one of the first two William LINDSEYs sold his land in Brunswick County, VA in 1754 and moved to Halifax County, NC, dying intestate there before 28 July 1772, leaving sons William, Joseph and John surviving him. The compiler believes that this William LINDSEY (the father of William, Joseph and John) was the husband of Mary.

(2) The following Notes refer to the William LINDSEY who was married to Jane.

A 1748 deed suggests that this William Lindsey came to Brunswick Co. from New Kent Co., VA.

The presence of two separate William Lindseys in Brunswick is indicated by the 1748 Brunswick tax lists, which show a William Lindsey in the poll lists of both Drury Stith and Sterling Clack (DB 3, 256). . . .

A number of deeds from 1750-1754 show a William Lindsey in Brunswick who could be either William with wife Mary or William with wife Jane. These are as follows:

On 4 March 1750, William Lindsey wit. the deed of John Parker of Lunenburg to Daniel Sears of Brunswick of land in Brunswick. Other wit. were John Clack and Wm. Murphy (DB 5, p. 59).

An 8 Jan. 1752 affidavit of John Wall, Jr., says that he falsely accused Henry Jackson of taking his watch while the two were at the ordinary near Brunswick courthouse. Others present were John Clack, Laurence Smith, and William Lindsey. The watch had been laid on the billiard table and thought lost, but was then found. So many were intoxicated at the time that it was difficult to know what had taken place (DB 5, p. 514).

On 8 Feb. 1752, William Lindsey wit. two deeds of Henry Bailey of Lunenburg Co. to Wm. Merritt of Elizabeth City Co. for land in Brunswick. Henry Embry, John Merritt, and Jeremiah Wize were other wit. (DB 5, 507-8).

William Lindsey wit. an 18 Feb. deed of Peter Simmons Sr. to Peter Jr., Brunswick (DB 5, 525).

On 11 May 1754, William Lindsey wit. the deed of Wm. McKnight of Brunswick to Thomas Meriot of same (DB 5, 709).

On 24 June 1754, William Lindsey wit. the deed of gift of land by John Ingram Sr. to John Ingram Jr., both of Brunswick (DB 5, 688).

William Lindsey's will is in Brunswick Co. VA Will Book 3, pgs 512-513. The will was DATED 11 May 1766 and PROBATED 26 Sept 1768. Briefly: he mentions son James, leaving him land and plantation whereon he now lives, the said land lying part in my old patent and part in my new patent, being by estimation 85 acres more or less. He leaves bed & furniture to dau Sarah Copland. Mentions chest to granddau Elizabeth Lindsey, dau of his son Caleb; to granddau Sarah Lindsey, a small trunk (location of this behest implies she too is dau of Caleb); granddau Susanna, dau of son James; and granddau Elizabeth, dau of son James. Son James is sole Executor. (No mention of wife.) Will witnessed by William Brown, Nathaniel Robertson, Thomas Holcombe; will presented to court 26 Sept 1768 by James Lindsey, Executor, who posted bond of 500 lbs.

An examination of the numerous deeds in Brunswick Co. VA between or involving him and his family members makes it clear that son Caleb had wife Rosanna (Martin) Lindsey; this Caleb d 1785 Chatham Co. NC, leaving a will. Son James is actually James William Lindsey Sr., who md Mary Carlton, dau of Blake Carlton. Not mentioned in the will is daughter Agatha Lindsey who married John Carlton Sr., also a son of Blake Carlton.(The family of Agatha went on to Surry Co. NC, (where their son Lindsey Carlton d 1834) and some then on to Spartanburg Co. SC. and destinations beyond.) Another dau not mentioned in the will was Winifred Lindsey who md George Durham, whose will was dated 13 Aug 1766 and probated 23 Feb 1767/68 in Brunswick Co. VA Will Book 3, pgs 470-471; he mentions wife Winifred and several children, including son James Lindsey Durham and dau Margaret Holcombe.

I have an 80 pg. chart showing descendants of William Lindsey d 1768 Brunswick Co. Va., compiled by me from various sources, but essentially building upon the 1972 "Lindsey Clan book" compiled by me and other cousins, and typed by my cousins Anecia Dutton and Gayle McMillan. You may have seen reference to this "Clan Book" as it was sent to Mormon Library for filming. It did NOT include William d 1768, for in 1972 we had not fully identified him yet. I had just located the Lindseys in Surry Co. NC and Brunswick Co. Va. at that time, but had not, as the timing would have it, thoroughly perused the records of those two counties yet, so we had not "put it together" at that time.

(3) Message from William Lindsey to the LINDSAY-L Mailing List dated December 29, 2009:

A William Lindsey was in Spotsylvania by 5-6 Nov. 1722, when Larkin Chew sold to William Lindsey 200 acres in St. George Psh., the deed stating that both lived in Spotsylvania Co., St. George Psh., north of the River Po out of a grant to Chew (Spotsylvania DB A, pp. 43-4). Christopher (X) Bell, John Chew, and James Newton wit., with Larkin Chew signing. Larkin Chew acknowledged the deed 2 April 1723 and it was recorded.

The same day, William Lindsey wit. a deed of Larkin Chew of St. George Psh. to Samuel Moore of same for land adj. Lawrence Franklin and Harry Beverley. Other wit. were Wm. Warren and George Trible (DB A). In my view, this is the William Lindsey who was a processioner of land between the Po and Ta in Spotsylvania Co. in 1731. Felder shows this William living beside Harry Beverly in St. George's Parish in 1731. In addition, also living in this vicinity was Edward Pigg.

In my view, the William Lindsey who appears in the Spotsylvania records at this time is William Lindsey with wife Mary who can be shown to appear in Brunswick Co., VA, records in 1743 shortly after the William of Spotsylvania sold his land there. Because a William Lindsey of New Kent Co., VA (with wife Jane) came to Brunswick Co. shortly after, these two Williams have been confused in various accounts of the Lindsey lines in southern VA and northern NC. A careful study of deed, court, and tax
records, along with the locations of both men's land in Brunswick Co., shows that they are two different persons.

I am concluding that the William with wife Mary is the Spotsylvania William, because he shows up in Brunswick Co. precisely when the William in Spotsylvania leaves this county. No records I have found in Spotsylvania name the wife of the William who lived there, but her name appears in records in Brunswick Co., VA, and Edgecombe and Halifax Co., NC.

Note that if William Lindsey was of age in 1722, his date of birth would be by about 1700, or possibly prior to this. The sale of William Lindsey's land in Halifax Co., NC, in 1772 indicates he had died in Halifax Co., NC, by that year. William had a son Joseph who was of age by 1749.

Note that Chew had acquired tracts of land between the Po and Ta by this point and was selling them to smaller landholders. . . .

Note that the 7 May 1745 Nicholas Hawkins deed cited below indicates that William Lindsey's land in Spotsylvania Co. (which he sold to Nicholas Hawkins) was sold by Larkin Chew to William Lindsey on 5 Nov. 1722, and the 5 May 1724 deed of Chew to Henry Martin indicates that William Lindsey's land joined that of Chew. According to Mansfield (cited below), in 1722, Chew, one of the county's largest landlords, sold 200 aces to William Lindsey and 300 to Henry Martin.

According to Paula S. Felder, Forgotten Companions: The First Settlers of Spotsylvania County and Fredericksburgh Town (Fredericksburgh: Historic Publications, 1982), Wm. Bartlett, Richard Blanton, and Larkin Chew were processioners in 1731 of the land in Spotsylvania that was formerly King and Queen - i.e., from midway between the Massaponax and the Ni down to the Po and acress the St. George Psh. line (p. 52). This information is from a processioners' report, April 1732, and patent and deed records. Felder says that names in this precinct in early records include Larkin Chew, Lawrence Battaile, Nicholas Hawkins, Richard Blanton, Henry Martin, John Chew, Harry Beverley, Francis and Anthony Thornton, and others.

In a query posted 28 March 2004 to the Lindsey discussion group at Genforum, a Beverly (?) notes that Richard Blanton was s/o Thomas and Jane McGuffey Blanton of Old Rappahannock Co., VA, and was b. abt. 1675. Richard Blanton is said to have married Elizabeth Lindsey abt. 1720 in Spotsylvania Co., and this couple had a dau. Mary, b. 1728, who m. Alexander Hawkins.

James Roger Mansfield, A History of Early Spotsylvania (Orange, VA: Green, 1977), notes that in the testimony of 1733-4 to settle the disputed Fairfax grant between the Potomac and Rappahannock, Francis Thornton of Caroline (the Snow Creek Francis - said he settled on Snow Creek in 1703 when there were only two other houses nearby; John Taliaferro gave similar testimony. Mansfield notes that this indicates Spotsylvania was practically empty by abt. 1700, but by 1720, as the area opened, a rush to settle it occurred (p. 12). The county was formed in 1721.

On 7 Apr. 1724, William Lindsey was among those appointed to oversee a road from the east northeast to the head of the Mattapony River towards Germana (Road Orders, 7 Apr. 1724, p. 66 - see ibid., p. 8).

On 4 May 1724, Larkin Chew sold Henry Martin 300 acres in St. George Psh., Spotsylvania Co., the deed noting that both lived in this parish and county. The land adj. William Lindsey and Harry Beverley (down a branch at Punch Point on the Po (Spotsylvania DB A, 87-9). In a 13 Jan. 1998 email message to me, Jeffrey Martin (martin@fairind.com) tells me that Henry Martin was b. 1685 in New Kent Co., VA, and it is believed that his son William, with wife Rose, went to Brunswick Co., VA, where their daughter Rose m. Caleb, son of William Lindsey.

On 2 Oct. 1725, Larkin Chew sold to Nicholas Copland of Essex Co. 280 acres in Spotsylvania bordering William Lindsey, Henry Martin, and Nicholas Hawkins (Spotsylvania DB A, pp. 162-3).

On 1 Nov. 1726, William Lindsey was sworn to the grand jury (Spotsylvania Order Bk. 1724-30, p. 113; see Ruth and Sam Sparacio, Order Book Abstracts of Spotsylvania Co., VA 1724-1730, Part II [1320 Mayflower Dr., McLean, VA 22101: Antient Press, 1990], p. 1).

Spotsylvania Order Bk. 1724-30 also shows that a case of William Lindsey vs. John Campbell was dismissed on 3 May 1727, since no declaration had been made.

According to Felder, cited above, William Lindsey was processioner in 1731 of the land between the Po and Ta and across St. George's Psh. Living in this section of the county were William Lindsey himself and Robert Beverley. A 1731 land patent of Robert Brooke shows that his land adj. Beverley's in Spotsyvlania (VA Mag. Hist. Biog. 15 [1907-8], p. 104). Felder appears to be citing the Vestry Minutes of St. George's Psh. for 30 Aug. 1731, which say that the processioning was to be done between the first Sunday of Oct. and the last day of March 1732.

The processioning report, signed by Robert King, William Lindsey, and John Durrat, is given in the minutes for 19 Apr. 1732, and is dated 30 March 1732; I have a copy.

William Lindsey wit. the will of Richard Blanton in Spotsylvania on 3 Sept. 1734 (WB A, p.?; see Wm. Armstrong Crozier, Virginia County Records, vol. 1: Spotsylvania County, p. 5).

On 7 Feb. 1738, the Spotsylvania Order Book notes that William Lindsey had petitioned to clear a road from his plantation to the main road through Nicholas Hawkins' land, and that a Caleb Lindsey was among those ordered to assist (OB 1738, p. 33). Since William Lindsey with wife Jane, who was in Brunswick Co., VA, by 1745, had a son Caleb, this reference has led some researchers to think that the William who is in Spotsylvania Co. records up to 1743 is William with wife Jane.

Which suggests that the Caleb Lindsey in this record is a different Caleb than the son of William and Jane of that name. . . .

But after a careful study of the Brunswick records (along with those in Edgecombe and Halifax Co., NC), I have come to the conclusion that the William Lindsey who is in Brunswick Co. by 1743 is William with wife Mary.

On 6 Apr. 1742, William Lindsey of Spotsylvania wit. the deed of Nicholas Copeland of Orange to John Sutton of land in St. George Psh.; other witnesses were John Chew and Benjamin Martin (Spotsylvania DB C).

On 26 Apr. 1743, William Lindsey of St. George Psh., Spotsylvania, sold to Nicholas Hawkins of same 200 acres, with wit. Wm. (X) Martin, Parmenas Bowker, John (X) Hutcherson, John (X) Sutton, James Hawkins, Nathan Hawkins, and Alexander Hawkins (Spotsylv. DB D, 46-50). The deed specifies that the land was out of a tract of 3800 acres of Larkin Chew, part of which Chew sold to Lindsey on 5 Nov. 1722. William Lindsey signed and sealed. The deed was pr. by Sutton, Martin, Hawkins, and Hutcheson on 7 June 1743 and recorded.

It appears that William Lindsey was selling out to move south to Brunswick Co., VA. An indicator of the migration from northern VA to the southside, and Lunenburg Co., in particular, during this time frame is the fact that on 5 June 1747 the Lunenburg County court ordered that a road be laid off and cleared from Stanton River to the Mayo Settlement at the Wart Mountains in what was then Lunenburg (Carol Baker Wahl, "Hickey's Road," The Pittsylvania Packet 25 [Summer 1997], p. 6). This road came to be known as Hickey's Road, and it played a major part in the settlement of the frontier of Southside VA.

On 3 May 1743, the court ordered William Martin to serve in room of William Lindsey as overseer of the road from John Chew's plantation Cowland, and on 3 May 1743, a deed of William Lindsey to Nicholas Hawkins was pr. by John Sutton, James Hawkins, and John Hutcherson (pp. 218-9). Thereafter I don't find William Lindsey in the order books. This suggests that he moved south in or around 1743, precisely the period in which a William Lindsey shows up in Brunswick Co., VA, records, and briefly in Edgecombe Co., NC, records. By the same month, a William Lindsey begins to appear in Brunswick Co., VA, records. On 5 May 1743, he wit. the deed of Jehu Peoples to Saml Huckaby, both of Brunswick Co. Other witnesses were Thomas Lanier and Wm. Denton. The deed was proven 5 May 1743 (Brunswick DB 2, 274, p. 579). This William may later have ties to Halifax Co., VA, where John Lindsey, a son of James Lindsey and Sarah Daniel, went. On 4 May 1759, William Lindsey and wife Mary sold to Elijah Humphries 170 acres in Halifax Co. that William Lindsey had purchased from Francis Jones on 21 Nov. 1749 on the east side of Rocky Swamp adj. James Salmon. The deed was signed by both Wm. and Mary by mark, and wit. by Samuel Huckaby and Peter Denton (Halifax DB 7, 67).

On 19 Nov. 1744, Moses Swinney of Edgecombe sold to William Lindsey of Brunswick 400 acres adj. Briedeley, with Wm. Person and John Egerton wit. (Edgecombe DB 5, p. 303). On 10 Nov. 1744, William Lindsey of Brunswick sold to Samuel Huckaby 200 acres at the mouth of spring branch, out of the 400-acre tract, with Person and Egerton wit. (ibid., p. 304). Note that this appears to be the William Lindsey with land in Halifax Co. by 1741 - see above.

In Nov. 1744, Edgecombe court minutes show William Lindsey acknowledging the deeds from Moses Swinney and to Samuel Hucke(by?; original torn) (p. 20).

Edgecombe deed books show that the man selling this land was of Brunswick Co., VA. On 16 Nov. 1747, William Lindsey of Brunswick Co., VA, with wife Mary, sold to George Mabry of Brunswick 200 acres out of 400 acres William Lindsey had purchased from Moses Swinney in Edgecombe Co., NC (Edgecombe DB 3, 204). The deed from Swinney to William Lindsey is in Edgecombe DB 5, p. 303. Immediately following this deed is one in which William Lindsey sells to Samuel Huckebee of Brunswick Co., VA, 200 acres out of the tract he bought from Swinney (ibid., 304). Both deeds place William Lindsey in Brunswick Co., VA.

I suspect the Mary Lindsey above is the Mary Lindsey summoned with Wm. Cornish to give evidence in Spotsylvania Co. on 4 Sept. 1728, re: a bastard child said to have been born to Elizabeth Head of John Blanton, who had been buried (OB 1724-30, p. 260).

On 6 Feb. 1745, William Lindsey sold to Lemuell Cocke of Southwark Psh. in Surry Co. 174 acres sold by patent to William Lindsey on 20 Aug. 1745 [sic]. The deed was wit. by Nicholas Edmunds and Thos. Cocke and pr. 6 Feb. 1745. The deed notes that William Lindsey resided in Brunswick Co. (Brunswick DB 3, 58).

On 7 May 1745, a deed of Nicholas Hawkins to Nathan Hawkins, both of Spotsylv., St. Geo., notes that the land was out of a grant to Larkin Chew, sold by a deed 5 Nov. 1722 by Chew to William Lindsey (DB D). Note that this deed corroborates that William Lindsey had sold his Spotsylvania Co. land and moved away.

25 March 1749, Joseph Lindsey patents 350 acres in Granville Co. north side of Anderson's swamp, joining a branch and the said swamp. Wits. were Dan Weldon and Gideon Macon. Chain carriers were Edward Moore and Leonard Lindsey (Granv. Pat. Bk. 11, 1914, p. 439). The survey was done on 14 March 1748. This appears to be Joseph Lindsey son of William and Mary Lindsey. It also seems reasonable to suppose that Leonard Lindsey is closely related to William Lindsey with wife Mary - but how?

On the very same day in Granville, Dennis Lindsey was chain carrier for three surveys, including one for his son-in-law Roger Thornton. Gideon Macon wit. this survey. His appearance in the survey for Joseph Lindsey seems to link these two men.

If the preceding Joseph Lindsey is son of William Lindsey with wife Mary, then the fact that Joseph is of age by 1749 (with a birth date by about 1729) seems to confirm a birth date of 1700 or earlier for this William Lindsey.

Sometime in the period from 1748-1758, William Lindsey with wife Mary moved to Edgecombe/Halifax Co., NC. He is definitely there by 1758 (see Blackwell deed below), and is probably there as early as 1754 when he buys land in Edgecombe from Francis Jones after selling land in Brunswick Co. to John Brown. A number of deeds from 1750-1754 show a William Lindsey in Brunswick who could be either William with wife Mary or William with wife Jane. These are as follows:

On 4 March 1750, William Lindsey wit. the deed of John Parker of Lunenburg to Daniel Sears of Brunswick of land in Brunswick. Other wit. were John Clack and Wm. Murphy (DB 5, p. 59).

An 8 Jan. 1752 affidavit of John Wall, Jr., says that he falsely accused Henry Jackson of taking his
watch while the two were at the ordinary near Brunswick courthouse. Others present were John Clack, Laurence Smith, and William Lindsey. The watch had been laid on the billiard table and thought lost, but was then found. So many were intoxicated at the time that it was difficult to know what had taken
place (DB 5, p. 514).

On 8 Feb. 1752, William Lindsey wit. two deeds of Henry Bailey of Lunenburg Co. to Wm. Merritt of Elizabeth City Co. for land in Brunswick. Henry Embry, John Merritt, and Jeremiah Wize were other wit. (DB 5, 507-8).

William Lindsey wit. an 18 Feb. deed of Peter Simmons Sr. to Peter Jr., Brunswick (DB 5, 525).

On 11 May 1754, William Lindsey wit. the deed of Wm. McKnight of Brunswick to Thomas Meriot of same (DB 5, 709).

On 24 June 1754, William Lindsey wit. the deed of gift of land by John Ingram Sr. to John Ingram Jr., both of Brunswick (DB 5, 688).

In my view, the preceding 1750 and 1752 Brunswick deeds involving members of the Clack family are for William Lindsey with wife Jane, who witnessed Mary Clack's will in 1763.

30 Jan. 1754, Leonard Lindsey had a warrant for 640 acres in Granville north side of Great Island
Creek adj. Haywood's line and both sides of Crooked Creek; the warrant was originally issued to Sherwood Haywood when the land was surveyed 31 Aug. 1753 (Granville Dist. Miscellaneous Land Office Papers, 3155).

26 Feb. 1754: William and Mary Lindsey in Brunswick Co. sell their land there to John Brown - see 1760 deed below. They are evidently moving to Halifax Co., NC, at this time.

1 March 1754, John Bird had a plat for 640 acres in Granville both sides of Little Island Creek with Lanard Lindsey the chain carrier; the entry was 20 May 1753 (Granville Dist. Miscellaneous Land Office
Papers, 2385).

A 28 Nov. 1754 Granville patent to William Searcy for land on Great Island Creek adj. William Haywood and Moore shows Lanard Lindsay as a chain carrier for the survey on 23 Sept. 1754 (Granv. Pat. Bk. 14, 2828, p. 74).

2 Jan. 1756: Leonard Lindsey received a patent for 325 acres in Granville Co., Psh. of St. John, joining William Haywood and Crooked Branch. The survey was 1 March 1754, with Reuben Searcy and John Bird as chain carriers (Granv. Pat. Bk. 11, 438). The land patent has a note that it was returned with refusal to pay.

4 Jan. 1757, Leonard Lindsey had a warrant for 640 acres in Granville adj. Joseph Kimball, Jr. and Jorden's and Eaton's line on the lower side of the upper fork of Anderson swamp. The entry was on 2 Dec. 1756 and the grant itself on 27 Nov. 1760 (Granville Dist. Miscellaneous Land Office Papers,
3156).

1 March 1757, William Lindsey's son Joseph Lindsey is chain carrier for a survey in Granville Co. for Leonard Lindsey - see below. See also Granville Dist. Miscellaneous Land Office Papers, 3157, noting that the land is east of Anderson Swamp adj. Joseph Kimball, Jr. and Col. Eaton. The entry was 2 Dec. 1756.

The 24 Nov. 1760 deed of John Brown and wife Olive indicates that on 26 Feb. 1754, William Lindsey and wife Mary of St. Andrew Psh. sold to John Brown of Nottoway Psh. in Southampton Co. 143 acres sold by George Harper to William Lindsey. This land was sold in 1760 to Thomas Harrison: Indenture made the 24th day of November, 1760, between John Brown and Olive, his wife, of Nottoway Parrish, Southampton County, parties of the first part, and Thomas Harrison for 42 pounds 10 shillings, conveying 143 acres of which lower part of land bounded by land of Peter Simmons and upper part of land bounded by lands of John Butts and John Jackson, and being part of a larger tract formerly belonging to John Denton, deceased, and by John Denton devised to Elizabeth Harper, wife of George Harper and by them sold to William Lindsey by Deed recorded in Williamsburgh and by William Lindsey conveyed unto the said John Brown by deed dated February 26, 1754, and recorded in Brunswick County. Signed by John Brown and Olive Brown (her mark). Witnesses were Jas. Stewart, James Harrison, William Knight, Peny. Hurst, and Ingram Blanks. Indenture proved in Court on January 26, 1761, by the oaths of James Stewart, William Knight, and Peny. Hurst, and as to Olive Browne by the oaths of James Stewart and William Knight (Deed Book 6, page 600).

Edgecombe DB 4, 524, records an 8 Jan. 1754 deed of Francis Jones of Bladen Co. to William Lindsey of unidentified for 170 acres on the east side of Rocky Swamp adj. Jones (DB 4, p. 524). Note that the location suggests that this is the William Lindsey who bought land in Edgecombe from Daniel and Sarah Blackwell in 1758. This deed is wit. by Samuel Huckaby, who was of Brunswick Co., VA, and who on 17 May 1748, sold to George Mabry 200 acres out of a trace patented to Moses Swaney/Swinney, in a deed recorded next to the 1747 deed in which William Lindsey bought land from Mabry that had also been patented to Swaney/Swinney (Edgec. DB 3, p. 205).

1 Jan. 1757: John Lindsey buys from John and Elizabeth Good, all of Halifax Co., 150 acres adj. Great Branch, Anthony Winston, George Morris, Joseph John Alston, Robert Green, and John Good (Halifax DB 9, 1216). Son John is of age by this date, and thus born by 1737.

On 6 May 1757, John Bird pat. 680 acres in Granville Co., St. John Psh., adj. Joseph Lindsey, Thomas Ford, and William Searcy. The name William Moore is written below Bird's name (Granville Pat. Bk. 11, 1374, p. 320). It seems reasonable to me to believe this is Joseph Lindsey, son of William and Mary. Granville Dist.

Miscellaneous Land Office Papers, 2386 shows that John Bird also had a warrant for land with a similar description issued on 24 Oct. 1754, and that it was on Anderson's Swamp, with the entry dated 6 July 1754 and the grant on 27 Nov. 1760.

In June 1758, a deed by Daniel Blackwell to Wm. Lindsey, both of Edgecombe Co., NC, was proven by William Roberts (Edgecombe Ct. Minutes 1758, p. 202). In the same month, Wm. Fuqua was appointed overseer of the road in room of William Lindsey (ibid., p. 201).

The deed of Daniel Blackwell cited above is in Edgecombe DB 6, p. 305. It shows that on 6 March 1758, Daniel and Sarah Blackwell sold to William Lindsey, all of Edgecombe, for 8 pounds VA money 100 acres from a tract belonging to John Pasmore decd. on the east side of Rocky Swamp.

29 Aug. 1758, a survey for John Huckaby of 642 acres in Halifax Co. in the parish of Edgecombe on both sides of Burncoat Swamp notes that the land adj. Samuel Huckaby, Brickel's corner, Ealback's line, Colman's line, and Lindsey's line (Granville Pat. Bk. 14, 2944, p. 140).

William Lindsay bought 100 acres from Joseph Passmore on east side of Rocky Swamp in Halifax on 26 March 1759, with Elijah Humphries, Peter Denton, and Daniel Blackwell wit. (Halifax DB 7, 65).

4 May 1759, Wm. Lindsey to Elijah Humphries, £39 VA, 170A which Linsey purchased from Francis Jones 21 Nov 1749 on east sideRocky Swamp adj James Salmon. Signed William (x) Linsey, Mary (x) Linsey. Witnesses Saml. Huckaby, Peter Denton (Halifax DB 7: 68).

On 10 Jan. 1760,George Mabry of Halifax sold to John Ellis of same 400 acres that had been patented on 15 March 1742 and conveyed by Swinney to William Lindsey and then back to Swinney by Wm. Lindsey (Halifax DB , p. 413).

3 May 1760: George Goodwin of Halifax Co. sells to John Lindsey, formerly of Virginia but now of Halifax Co., 320 acres on the south side of Conconary Swamp (Halifax DB 7, 213). I believe this is the John Lindsey who is son of James Lindsey and Sarah Daniel first appearing in Halifax Co., and that this is why the deed specifies that he is formerly of VA. From this point, the two John Lindseys in Halifax have to be separated from each other.

27 Nov. 1760, Leonard Lindsey pat. 640 acres in Granville Co., Psh. Of St. John, east side of Anderson's swamp, joining Joseph Kimbal, Jr. and the swamp. Wits. were Will Hurst, Blake Baker. Chain carriers were George Jorden and Joseph Lindsey (Granville Pat. Bk. 11, 1892, p. 434). The survey was 1 March 1757.

29 July 1761, Leonard Lindsey patented 420 acres in Granville Co. both sides of Falling Creek, with Thomas Lowe and Robert Whitaker wit. (Granville Pat Bk. 11, 1899, p. 436). The survey was 24 March the same year.

On 14 Nov. 1761, Wm. Lindsey was a chain carrier for the survey of 216 acres in Halifax Co., NC, for Thomas Bull, tract adjoining William Fuquay,John Huccabay, Parram's Corner, Ellbeck's line, and Thomas Wiggins (Granv. Pat. Bk. 14, p. 181, #3063). Henry Bull was the other chain carrier.

2 Sept. 1761, John Huckaby to George Passmore, £10, 100A, part of a 1760 Granville grant to said Huckaby, east side Rocky Swamp adj Samuel Huckaby, Elijah Humphrey. Wits John Sullivent, William Lindsay. Proved Mar Ct 1762. Halifax DB 8: 91.

6 May 1762, Joseph Lindsey was a chain carrier with Thomas Bull for a survey of 360 acres in Halifax Co. for James Hogun adj. Meade's corner, Roberts' line, John Chapman, John Sullivant, and Lockhart's line (Granville Pat. Bk. 14, 2946, p. 140). Note the name John Sullivant, who appears in transactions with William Lindsey.

13 June 1762, Joseph Lindsey wit. will of John Daniel, Granville Co., NC (Granville Co. Rec. 1762-1765, p. 12). The will was prob. Aug. 1762.

3 Aug. 1762, William Daniel had an entry for 700 acres in Edgecombe south of Little Swamp, adj. Joseph Lindsey (spelled Lince), Joseph Daniel, and Jacob Barnes (Granv. Misc. Land Office Papers, 1147).

Aug. 1762, Joseph Lindsey is among petitioners to the court of Granville Co. for the establishment of a Presbyterian Church (Gr. Co. Rec. 1762-1765, p. 4).

A 4 Dec. 1762 deed of James Huckaby to Owen Flukes for land in Halifax Co., NC, notes that the land adj. Wm. Lindsey. Samuel Huckaby was a wit. (Halifax DB 8, p. 643).

17 Jan. 1763, Wm. and Mary Lindsey (the deed names him as Sr., indicating the presence of a younger William who has come of age by this time in Halifax - possibly his son of this name) of Halifax sold to David Flukes 200 acres from Joseph Passmore, both signing by mark (Halifax DB 8, p. 603). The land is on the east side of Rocky Swamp. Witnesses are John Sullivent, Owen Flukes, and James Lamons. Halifax DB 8: 198.

20 Nov. 1763, Wm. Lindsey bought from Robert Chapman of Halifax Co. 125 acres on west side of Rocky Swamp. A Wm. Lindsey was a wit., signing his name (Halifax DB 9, p. 961). Because of the preceding deed in Jan. of the same year, the man signing here may be a younger William, who had come of age
by this year.

11 April 1763: Leonard Lindsey was a chain carrier for the survey by Joseph Kimball of 530 acres in Granville Co., both sides Reedy Fork of Anderson's swamp, adj. Bartholemew Kimball. Wits. were George Martin and Philemon Hawkins (Granville Pat. Bk. 11, 1871, p. 429).

2nd Tuesday in November, Bute Co. court minutes show Joseph Lindsey among those ordered to maintain a road from the Cypress to Ferrill's Bridge.

On 2 Sept. 1769, Wm. Lindsey wit. the deed of John Huckaby to George Passmore in Halifax Co. (DB 8, p. 508). The deed notes that the land adj. Samuel Huckaby.

15 May 1771, Bute Co., NC, court minutes show a deed from Leonard Lindsey to Joseph Rowland proven by West Harris.

The William in Halifax Co. had died by 28 July 1772, when William, Joseph, and John Lindsey of Halifax sold to Jesse Weaver of Halifax 125 acres out of the patent to John Edwards on the west side of Rocky Swamp (Halifax DB 12, 211). The deed notes that the land was 125 acres west side of Rockey Swamp adj. the Spring Branch, Smiths Branch, and David Chapman. Witnesses were Thomas Wiggins, Henry Wiggins, and Edward Jordin. The deed recites that grantors "hath infallible estate of inheritance in fee simple . . . & hath full power and lawful authority to sell and dispose." It is not clear to me any Halifax records that these sons of William Lindsey remain in Halifax Co. from this point on. Tax records show the John Lindsey who married Mary Masterson, but not the sons of William Lindsey.

20 Nov. 1777, John Lindsey and Mary his wife sell 326 acres in Halifax out of a 1720 patent to George Gooding on Connara Swamp. The buyer is Richard Carney of Bertie Co. Both John and Mary sign. Witnesses are Charles Blanton, Giles Long, Reubin Norfleet (Halifax DB 13, 564). Since this John Lindsey has a wife Mary, he is likely the son of James Lindsey and Sarah Daniel, since that John is known to have married Mary Masterson.

24 Jan. 1778, John Lindsey buys from John Somerville, both Halifax, 688 acres on Great Creek adj. John Blanton and others (Halifax DB 13, 568). The Blanton reference makes me think this is John Lindsey with wife Mary Masterson.

3 Jan. 1779, John Lindsey buys from John Joseph Alston, both Halifax, 300 acres (Halifax DB 14, 726). The Alston reference makes me think this is John Lindsey with wife Mary Masterson - see 1782 deed.

In a 5 May 2007 email to me, Ron Lindsay (ronlindsay@comcast.net) tells me that Nash County, NC DB 3-240 has a deed stating that William Linsey received a 300-acre land grant, from the state of NC Gov. Richard Caswell in Nash County, NC on November 10, 1779, apparently for his Revolutionary War services. This tract of land was located on the north side of Little Peachtree Creek, adjoining his own line, et al. Ron Lindsay notes, "Thus we can assume from this deed that William Linsey already owned other property on Little Peachtree Creek in Nash County, NC, prior to Nov. 10, 1779."

7 Oct. 1782: Willis Alston sells to John Lindsey, both Halifax, 23½ acres joining John Lindsey's present land, Charles Blanton and others. Wit. Are Henry Dawson, James Lindsey (Halifax DB 15, 1147). Evidently John Lindsey with wife Mary Masterson and their son James.

Had Joseph Lindsey died by 7 Feb. 1785? A land entry by Ephraim Vaughn on 15 June 1778 date for 300 acres in Bute Co. on Little Peachtree Creek notes that the land had been caveated by Joseph Lindsey on 25 Aug. 1778, but that Lindsey had died when the warrant was issued 7 Feb. 1785 (Bute Co. Land Entries 1778-1779, 223, p. 49).

20 Feb. 1786: John Lindsey buys from Isaac Jackson and William Jackson, all of Halifax, 250 acres adj. Little Creek and Great Creek (Halifax DB 15, 1477).

Halifax Co., NC, ct. order bk. minutes for Nov. 1789 show a John Lindsey appointed with Robert Green, John Green, and Henry Dawson to procession bounds in district 13 of the county (OB 1, p. 115).

Halifax Co. OB minutes for May 1797 show John Lindsey Sr. and Jr. ordered to work on the road where Lewis Willis is overseer (OB 2, p. 112). The younger John was of age by Nov. 1796, when he appears in ct. minutes ordered to divide an estate.

In the 5 May 2007 email to me from Ron Lindsay cited above, Ron Lindsay states that Robin Rankin Willis believes that Joseph Lindsey was married to Elizabeth, and that John Lindsey had wife Dinah.

(2) A household headed by James FROST is listed in the 1841 census of Fobbing, Essex, England.

James is listed in the 1841 census as an agricultural laborer who was then 40 years of age; therefore, according to the 1841 census, he was born in about 1801. However, because of the way ages were rounded in the 1841 census, he could have then been as old as 44 years of age. According to the 1841 census, he was born in Essex, England.

Listed with James is his wife, Mary, who as then 45 years of age; therefore, according to the 1841 census, she was born in about 1796. However, because of the way ages were rounded in the 1841 census, she could have then been as old as 49 years of age. According to the 1841 census, she was born in Essex, England.

Also listed with James is his son, William, who was then 13 years of age; therefore, according to the 1841 census, he was born in about 1828. According to the 1841 census, he was born in Essex, England.

Also listed with James is his son, John, who was then 12 years of age; therefore, according to the 1841 census, he was born in about 1829. According to the 1841 census, he was born in Essex, England.

Also listed with James is his daughter, Mary, who was then 10 years of age; therefore, according to the 1841 census, she was born in about 1831. According to the 1841 census, she was born in Essex, England.

Also listed with James is his daughter, Eliza, who was then 7 years of age; therefore, according to the 1841 census, she was born in about 1834. According to the 1841 census, she was born in Essex, England.

Also listed with James is his son, James, who was then 3 years of age; therefore, according to the 1841 census, he was born in about 1838. According to the 1841 census, he was born in Essex, England.

* * *

The 1841 Census for England was taken on the night of 6 June 1841. The following information was requested:

• Name of street, avenue, road, etc.
• House name or number
• Surname of head of household
• Name of persons who had spent the night in the household
• Age*
• Sex
• Person's occupation
• Where born**

*The ages of people over 15 years old were usually rounded down to the nearest 5 years. For example, someone who was actually 24 years would have their age listed as 20, and someone who was actually 27 years old would have their age listed as 25.

**The "Where Born" column only asked two questions - 1) whether born in same county, and 2) whether born in Scotland, Ireland, or Foreign Parts. Possible answers and abbreviations to question #1 include: Yes (Y), No, (N), or Not Known (NK). For question #2, the following abbreviations were used: Scotland (S), Ireland (I), and Foreign Parts (F).

Enumeration forms were distributed to all households a couple of days before census night and the household members were required to complete the forms themselves. The next day, the enumerators collected the completed forms. All responses were to reflect the individual's status as of 6 June 1841 for all individuals who had spent the night in the house. People who were traveling or living abroad were enumerated at the location where they spent the night on census night. All of the details from the individual forms were later sorted and copied into enumerators' books, which are the records we can view images of today. The original householders schedules from 1841 to 1901 were destroyed.

The clerks who compiled and reviewed the census data made a variety of marks on the returns. Unfortunately, many of these tally marks were written over personal information and some fields, such as ages, can be difficult to read as a result. More useful marks include a single slash between households within a building and a double slash separating households in separate buildings.

A major problem with the 1841 census is that it was written in pencil rather than pen. This has resulted in many faded pages which have proved unreadable on microfilm.
