      John Lindsey, son of Samuel Lindsey of Newberry County, South Carolina, has been confused with another man named John L. Lindsey who lived in Wayne County, Tennessee. In a 1993 book titled The Legacy of Our Lindseys, written by William Lindsey McDonald, the author claimed that John L. Lindsey, born circa 1764, was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth Ford Lindsey of Newberry County, South Carolina. McDonald stated in the introduction to the book that he did not have documentation to substantiate much of the material in his book. McDonald also stated that there might be serious errors in the book as a result of the lack of documentation. Much of McDonald's information about his early Lindsey ancestors was based on family tradition. McDonald also stated in the introduction that much more research needed to be done to verify the material in his book.

      Newer research in primary source documents proves that John Lindsey, son of Samuel Lindsey of Newberry County, South Carolina was not John L. Lindsey, ancestor of William Lindsey McDonald. Samuel Lindsey's son, John Lindsey, was born after 1775, and he lived in Newberry County as an adult. John Lindsey was living in Newberry County when he administered the estate of his mother, Elizabeth Lindsey, in 1827. John L. Lindsey of Wayne County, Tennessee was living in Tennessee by 1820. He and his son, Sylvester B. Lindsey, were enumerated on the 1820 census in Maury County (spelled Linza). Original signatures of both John L. Lindsey of Wayne County, Tennessee and John Lindsey of Bush River, Newberry County prove that they were two different men. Records also show that John Lindsey, son of Samuel Lindsey, married a cousin named Elizabeth Lindsey in Newberry Co. ca. 1823. DNA evidence places the family of Samuel Lindsey in Lindsay Surname DNA Project Group 2, while a descendant of John L. Lindsey of Wayne Co., TN has been placed in Group 8.
