      James Lindsey and Sarah Frost

      James Lindsey . . . married Sarah Frost. James and Sarah Frost Lindsey migrated from South Carolina to Wilkinson Co., GA ca. 1814.

      Since it is known from the book, Men of Mark in Georgia, that James Lindsey married Sarah Frost in South Carolina before migrating to Wilkinson Co., GA, it seems that James was probably a member of the Lindsey family . . . that had migrated from Frederick Co., VA to Newberry Co., SC ca. 1770. This family included John Lindsey Sr. (b. abt. 1700, d. 1787) and his wife, Alce. I think that James Lindsey, husband of Sarah Frost, was probably a grandson of John Lindsey Sr.

      John Lindsey Sr. had four sons: James, John Jr. (Col. John Lindsey), Thomas, and Samuel. Two of these sons, James and John Jr., each named sons James. Of the two grandsons of John Lindsey Sr. named James, John Jr.'s son James was probably the man who died in Newberry Co. in 1841, whose will mentioned a brother named Humphrey. It is known from family Bible information that John Lindsey Jr. had sons named James and Humphrey, so it appears that the man named James Lindsey who died in Newberry Co. in 1841 could not have been the man who married Sarah Frost, and who later lived in Wilkinson Co., GA.

      I think that James Lindsey who married Sarah Frost was probably the son of James Lindsey Sr. (b. by 1731, d. 1799) and his wife Ruth. James Lindsey Sr. died testate in Newberry Co. in 1799. His will mentioned two sons: Moses was listed first and named as the elder son, and James was listed last (after five daughters) and named as the younger son. If the order of the names of the children in the will was chronological, then James was the youngest child of James Lindsey Sr. and his wife, Ruth. (Note: It is thought by some researchers that Moses Lindsey first married Sibella Wells, the daughter of Humphrey and Abigail Lindsey Wells, and second, a Sarah Frost.)

      Only the birth year of one of the children of James Lindsey Sr. is known. Moses Lindsey's Revolutionary War Pension record shows that he was born in 1761. So James Lindsey, the younger brother, was probably born at least eight years later than Moses if he was born after five sisters. This gives James a rough birth year of 1770, which is consistent with the 1820 census of Wilkinson Co., GA, which showed James as being born by 1775.

      (2) A household headed by James LINDSEY is listed in the 1820 census of Wilkinson County, GA, near households headed by John FROST and Sarah FROST. [The compiler believes that John FROST was probably James LINDSEY's brother-in-law, and that Sarah FROST was probably James LINDSEY's mother-in-law.]

      Listed in James' household are 1 free white male between 10 and 16 years of age; 1 free white male over 45 years of age; 3 free white females under 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 16 years of age; and 1 free white female between 26 and 45 years of age. Also listed in James' household are 2 slaves.

      Assuming that James is the free white male listed in the 1820 census as then being over 45 years of age, he would have been born before 1775, according to the 1820 census.

      Assuming that James' wife is the free white female listed in the 1820 census as then being between 26 and 45 years of age, she would have been born between 1775 and 1794, according to the 1820 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in James' household are children of James and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 1 son (which son would have been born between 1804 and 1810, according to the 1820 census) and 4 daughters (3 of which daughters would have been born between 1810 and 1820, and 1 of which daughters would have been born between 1804 and 1810, according to the 1820 census).

      (3) The compiler has found no household headed by James LINDSEY listed in the 1830 census of Wilkinson County, GA. The compiler believes that James LINDSEY probably died before 1 June 1830, the enumeration date of the 1830 census.
