Thank you for the birth and death dates and places for Aaron Manship Williams. I don't have any more information on Margaret OVERCAST WILLIAMS, except that she was born abt 1815 in NC...according to the 1850 Tippah Co., MS census. Her sister, Esther OVERCAST, was living with Aaron and Margaret in the 1850 census. This is what I have on their children (Belinda Caroline WILLIAMS LINDSEY was my g.grandmother):
1.Tansey J. b. abt 1835 in AL
2.Thomas W. b. abt 1837 in AL
3.James M. b. abt 1842 in AL
4.Julia A. b. abt 1843 in AL
5.Sarah Ansalane b. 24 Jun 1846 in MS m. John Micajah Lindsey 7 Apr 1869 in MS, d. 8 Feb 1908
6.Belinda Caroline b. 8 May 1849 in Ripley, Tippah Co., MS m. Thomas Carroll Lindsey 24 Dec 1841 in MS d. 28 Sep 1831 in Bardwell, Ellis Co., TX
7.George A. b. abt 1851 in MS
8.E.J. (female) b. abt 1853 in MS, I strongly believe her name was Elizabeth
Most of the above information comes from the 1850 & 1860 census' and from Bible Records.
Thank you again for the dates, any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for all of your help. Any information that you need on my
line that is connected to you, feel free to ask. I am new at this and
may not have as much as you need. I have done most of my work through
family books and my grandmother. I am connected through the line as
Micajah Lindsey m Elizabeth McClurkin
Jane Lindsey m Matthew Davis
Micajah Lindsey Davis m Lavinia Ray
Minerva Ellen Davis m John R Young
Johnnie Avis Young m John Schaffer Noe
Beulah Gray Noe m Hoyt Leon Poore
Charlotte Ann Poore m James Louis Hathcote

Thanks once again for your help. I go to college in Fulton, MS so I
should be able to get some good records. Please let me know if I can

||I just was looking at your Great-Grandchildren of Micajah C. Lindsey page in Rootsweb. There is some information I have which you don't have listed there.|
None of this is exactly verified by census records, wills, etc. It's mostly information passed down to me on the backs of envelopes by my father.
Children of Bassel Lee Lindsey and Mary Ann Shelton:
Frederick Holland Lindsey, b. 1860 [Presumed to be the H. F. Lindsey, b. 1860, mentioned in 1870, Tippah Co., MS pg. 239 (Ripley)] He married Mary Francis (Lily) Wilson. Had at least five children. I have some names of the children.
George W. Lindsey, b. 1863 (He settled in Texas. I don't believe he ever married. At least he had no children. Died 1918, Sour Lake, TX)
Thomas Lindsey, b. 1866
--- Lindsey, b. 1866
Virginia Lou Ella Lindsey, b. December 1866
(My father always said that his mother...Virginia...was one of triplets, the other two died at birth or else very early on. I'm assuming these are the triplets but wouldn't swear to these names. I know my grandmother had twin sons, so multiples seem to run in the family.)
Luke Pryor Lindsey, b. 1869 He married a woman whose last name was Burke and they had a daughter, Mary Jo Lindsey, who married O. J. Hite. This was near Uniontown, Ky.
Benjamin Shelton Lindsey, b. Jan. 22, 1871 (Lived in Baltimore and then Terre Haute, Ind.) Had five children - I have their names.
Mary Lee Lindsey (I am under the impression that she was younger than my grandmother, Virginia) She married James Griffen.
Sally Lindsey (Perhaps she was one of the triplets?)
I grew up hearing my father talk about Uncle Fred, Uncle George, Uncle Pryor, Uncle Ben, and Aunt Mary Lee. I have met Uncle Ben personally.

Hope all is well with you and yours.
I just have come into contact with some 2nd cousins, descendents of Thomas
Carroll lindsey and Belinda Caroline Williams. If I remember right, My g.
grandfather, T.C. Lindsey was brother to your ancestor, John Micajah Linsey,
and they married sisters, Belinda Caroline Williams and Sarah Ansalane
These cousins have provided a maiden name for the William's girls mother.
From the 1850 census we have their parents names as Aaron M. Williams and
I guess their full names were Aaron Manship Williams and Margaret BIRDSONG.
I found these cousins when one posted to Ancestry.com. His Lindsey line
isn't correct but that is where I found Margaret' maiden name.
I haven't found out how they know that her maiden name was Birdsong yet.
We've been to busy swapping family stories. I refered them to your web site
for more information on the Lindsey's.
Just thought I'd pass on this new tidbit.. Who knows, it may lead to more
