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

      (2) Susan Grabek <http://mimpickles.com/lindsey/group2/chart_11_11_08.htm>:

      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 <http://mimpickles.com/lindsey/group2/patriarchs.htm#Thomas>:

      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. . . .

      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.

      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.)
