52 email received from Earl 29 Jan 2003:

Margaret: My wife is Betty Sue Freeman Evans. When she was a little
girl she remembers a lady, whose last name she thinks was Meyer from
Denver, Col., visited their home in Phil Campbell, AL gathering
information for a book she was preparing on the Lindsey/McClurken family.
She heard later that the lady was killed in a car accident. She is
interested in gathering more information. Her mother was Martha Jane Nix
(b. Feb. 1888) and was married to Wallace F. Freeman. Martha Jane Nix's
mother was Lucinda Catherine Lindsey (b. 11 Dec. 1859 in Tishomingo Co.
MS) who married Thomas Ezekiel Nix. Can you help us?

My wife Betty is a retired teacher. I am a retired accountant and taught
at the University of North Alabama after retiring.

Biographical Sketches of Trigg County

"Other Settlements. - As early as the year 1800 the most populous and thrifty settlements in the county were on Donaldson Creek. The most prominent families who resided there at that time were those of John Futrell, Shadrach Futrell, Drury Bridges, Josiah Outland, Enos Outland, Joel Cohoon, James Lawrence, Basil Holland, Nathan Futrell, James Dixon, Hiram Dixon, John Wilson, Sr., John Wilson, Jr., Ben Wilson, James Wilson, John Craig, James, Joshua, Caleb and Canton [Carlton?] Lindsay, Larry Killabrew, the majority of whom came from North Carolina." 
78 May have been a trouble maker! He and his brother Caleb were cited for "trespass" in VA and land seized and sold by the sheriff to cover what they owed, after they had left the state. Then in Rutherford Co. NC, he and Micajah got into some trouble which resulted in the sheriff seizing and selling land to cover a debt of 14 pounds, some shillings and pence. Unfortunately, when sold the land brought less than 7 pounds.

Phil Lindsey was kind enough to send me some pages from a book of the Surry Co. NC Court Minutes 1768-1789 Vol 1-2, published by Southern Historical Press. The book gives a view of what was going on there during that time. Surry Co. covered a large area of NC at the time. Most of the area on the north was in the mountains. Many entries in the records dealt with bounties on wolves and wildcats. I'm sure these animals made large dents in the domesticated farm animal herds. Apparently men from all parts of the county were called as jurors - but Carlton was the only one of his family of age at the time, so his name appeared often. Witnesses to jury trials were also given mileage and per-diem, was can possibly be used to tell how far away from the courthouse they lived. Carlton Lindsey's name was usually spelled "Carlton" but his last name was usually "Lindsay." The court house listed was located at Richmond, but I have not located that place yet. I don't have all pages of this book, so it's not possible to say all of the courts were held there. There also seems a close association with the Holcomb family. The connection to the Holcomb family is found through the Durham family. George Durham (b.c.1715-20, d.1766 Brunswick VA) m. Winifred Lindsey c.1740-50. His daughter Margaret Durham m. probably Thomas Holcomb. Carlton's descendants should look carefully at this relationship. Did some of the Holcombs go to SC? I am surprised Carlton's name is not found in the Surry Co. tax records. He was certainly old enough to pay at least a poll tax. Or is it we have only seen the land tax and not poll tax records. Following is a record of what was sent by Phil:

2-14-1783 - Juror: Carlton Lindsey. Had to be age 21, so this pushes his birth year back to 1761 or before.
5-15-1783 - Jurors: Carlton Lindsey, George Holcombe, and Phil Holcombe.
5-16-1783 - Jurors: Carlton Lindsey, George Holcombe.

Abner Greenwood vs. William Johnson -witness Philemon Holcomb for pltf.
76 miles, 11 days, Carlton Lindsey 72 miles, 10 days.
4-15-1785 - Jurors Carlton Lindsay, Philip Holcomb
5-14-1785 - John Randleman vs. John Sutton, wit. for pltf. Carlton Lindsay 36m-4d
8-9-1785 - Airs Hudspeth vs Daniel Bailey - wits. for pltf. - George Holcomb 96m-14d, Carlton Lindsey 144m-30d.
2-17-1786 - Philemon Holcomb vs. Thomas Burnet - wit. for pltf. - Carlton Lindsay 240m-30d.
5-11-1786 - deed John Bohannon to Airs Hudspeth - oath Carlton Lindsay.
2-14-1787 - deed Henry Speer to Carlton Lindsay - oath sd. Speer.
2-15-1787 - Philemon Holcomb vs Wm. Rutledge and Joseph Bradley - wits. Geo. Holcomb 274m-45d, Carlton Lindsey 274m-48d.
3-1787 - Carlton Lindsay to have leave to build water grist mill on Swisher's Creek to be deemed public mill.
5-1787 - Wm. Shepard, assignee of Becket Nichols and Phil Holcomb - find for pltf. - Wit. for pltf. Carlton Lindsay 100m-20d.
1787 - Philemon Holcomb listed with too much land in Sander's District.
11-13-1787 - deed from Carlton Lindsay to James Lindsay acknowledged.
11-15-1787 - State vs. Carlton Lindsay - not guilty. State vs. Philemon Holcomb - not guilty. State vs. Carlton Lindsey - guilty. The same jury was involved in all three cases. It appears there may have been more than one charge against Carlton Lindsey and one of them involved Holcomb.
11-17-1787 - Henry Speer vs Carlton Lindsay - deft. came into court and acknowledged if he said disrespectful things of Capt. Speer's character, he does not remember for he had no cause to say such - suit discontinued.
2-15-1788 - Jacob Ballinger vs Phil Holcomb and Carlton Lindsay - no judgement noted.
8-12-1788 - deeds from Jame Lindsay to Th. Wiles (oath John Blalock), James Lindsay and wife to John Bittick (oath John Durham), James Lindsay to John Durham (oath John Bittick), Thomas Holcomb exempt from paying poll tax in future.
8-16-1788 - claim paid to Jeffery Johnson for keeping guard with 3 men over C. Lindsay. Someone was worried Carlton was going to commit a violent act or was going to try to escape. This led to his father posting bond with all of his land and then losing it when Carlton did not show up in court. This was the last record of this Lindsey family in Surry Co. - they must have fled to SC very soon after.

Other Names: None

Location: Stewart County

Campaign: Federal Penetration up the Cumberland and Tennessee
Rivers (1862)

Date(s): February 11-16, 1862

Principal Commanders: Brig. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and Flag-Officer
A.H. Foote [US]; Brig. Gen. John B. Floyd, Brig. Gen. Gideon Pillow, and
Brig. Gen. Simon B. Buckner [CS]

Forces Engaged: Army in the Field [US]; Fort Donelson Garrison [CS]

Estimated Casualties: 17,398 total (US 2,331; CS 15,067)

Description: After capturing Fort Henry on February 6, 1862, Brig. Gen.
Ulysses S. Grant advanced cross-country to invest Fort Donelson. On
February 16, 1862, after the failure of their all-out attack aimed at
breaking through Grant’s investment lines, the fort’s 12,000-man
garrison surrendered unconditionally. This was a major victory for Brig.
Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and a catastrophe for the South. It ensured that
Kentucky would stay in the Union and opened up Tennessee for a
Northern advance along the Tennessee and Cumberland rivers. Grant
received a promotion to major general for his victory and attained
stature in the Western Theater, earning the nom de guerre
“Unconditional Surrender.”

Result(s): Union victory

Preservation Priority: I.1 (Class A)


On October 3rd 1993 a four year project was completed when a monument was dedicated to 1,616 Confederate soldiers and sailors at Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis, Indiana.

In 1989 two Indianapolis police officers, interested in historical preservation, started an effort to have the mass grave of Confederate prisoners of war properly marked. Four years later, after being joined by such organizations as the Civil War Roundtable, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Sons of Union Veterans, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Southern Club and many other groups and individuals, a new Confederate memorial was dedicated.

In Indianapolis during the Civil War, 1,616 Confederate soldiers and sailors died from the harsh treatment and conditions prevalent in military prisons in those days. These men were being held in Camp Morton, which held approximately 5,000 prisoners at any one time. A total of 15,000 men passed through the camp between 1862 and 1865. Orignally, the Confederates who died while being held at Camp Morton were buried at Greenlawn Cemetery near downtown Indianapolis. Years later when bodies were removed from this cemetery to make way for industrialization, the first monument to the Rebels was removed to a city park. Several years later, the bodies of the Confederates were moved to Crown Hill Cemetery, without their monument.

Since the 1912 monument would no longer fit onto the mass grave site at Crown Hill, a new marker at Crown Hill stated "1,616 Unknown Confederates". But, records from the National Archieves and from the old monument, revealed all of the names, dates of death and ranks of the deceased. So the Crown Hill Cemetery Project was created to right this wrong. This effort proved to be the forerunner of the current Indiana Coalition to Honor Civil War Dead.

At a beautiful ceremony in 1993, before hundreds of onlookers, the new Confederate Memorial was dedicated at a service attended by many officials and relatives of the dead. The keynote speaker was Congressman Andrew Jacobs, a supporter of the project. At this dedication were military honor guards from the United States Army and Civil War reenactors.

Now the 1,616 Americans buried at the Confederate mound in Crown Hill rest in peace, properly recognzied at last.

Letter to A.G. Waldrop, Jefferson County, Alabama, Jonesborrough P.O.
From :
Tishomingo County, Miss.
Bay Springs, Mississippi
29 Jul 1847

Dear Cousin:
I take my pen in hand to let you know that we are all well at present. Hoping these few lines may find you all well. I received your letter dated March the 19th, which gave me great satisfaction to hear that you was all well and doing well. You will please excuse my long delay of writing to you.
The connection is all well as far as I know. Crops is tolerable good. Corn is scarce. Old corn is worth 75 per bushel, bacon 10 to 12, wheat $1 per bushel. I want to hear from you all, Uncle Robert and Aunt Nancy, Uncle Zachariah and Aunt Hester, and Aunt Jane McClurken, and all of my cousins. Tell them that I would be glad to see them al
James Lindsey is before the people for a seat in the State Legislature. Brother Carrol and David Franklin is merchandising. Wm. C. Lindsey has been twice to Louisvillle, Ky. to buy goods. B.L. Lindsey is teaching school and I finished laying cotton yesterday. We have had two children since I wrote you before, one is a boy and the other a girl. They are 9 months old. We call the boy John Micajah, and the girl Nancy Lavina. We think they are very smart and pretty.
My dear cousin give my respects to all of the connection in that part of the country. Tell them that I would be glad to hear from them all when I write to one I write to all. I would be glad to hear from them [Meyer says "see you all"] and converse with you face to face, but as we live in different parts of the country, we can all write or have it done. Any of you can write better than I can, let me hear from you all and where you all live.
I understand that Cousin Samuel Waldrop has moved somewhere in this state. If so let me know where he is so that I can write to him and learn how he is doing. Mother wants to see you all very bad.
We had two barbecues in this neighborhood for the purpose of celebrating the fourth of July. One was on the 3rd and the other the 6th. They was both very well managed and good order prevailed throughout. The celebration was opened by prayer then the declaration read and a very appropriate address was made by Dr. Robert Morrow. He give the anti-war party thunder.
I must come to a close, so no more at present but still remai
truly yours,
Holland Lindsey

In a letter to B. S.

Goodspeed's History of Itawamba County, Mississippi (1891)

From: Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Mississippi, Embracing an Authentic
and Comprehensive Account of the Chief Events in the History of the State and a
Record of the Lives of Many of the Most Worthy and Illustrious Families and
Individuals. Vol. 1. Chicago: Goodspeed Publishing Company, 1891.

From: Chapter XII. Counties of the Chickasaw Cession. pp. 252-253.

All that part of the Chickasaw bordering on the Tombigbee river was called Monroe, and February 9, 1836, Itawamba was formed out of that territory and organized into a county, embracing about half of what is now Lee county, and part of Prentiss and Tishomingo counties.

The town of Fulton, the county seat, situated on the east bank of the Tombigbee, was laid off in 1836, and Charles Warren was elected the first sheriff; Louis Gideon, probate clerk; C. H. Ritchie, probate judge; R. O. Beene, circuit clerk. The first board of supervisors met in September, 1836; J. S. Bourland was elected president. The other members were A. G. Lane, John Beene, S. S. Sperman and E. Allen.

It is possible that the first white man to visit and settle in this section was Isaac Edwards in 1827. He was soon followed by J. S. Bourland, Everett Sheffield, John and Alfred Dulaney, M. Harrison, Reuben Wiygul, H. Jamison, >>>>Holland Lindsey<<<<, Jacob Green, Dorn Patton, Charles Warren, >>>>Josiah Lindsey<<<<, E. G. Thomas, Samuel Bell, Ed. Lesley, all now dead. J. Robins and M. C. Cummings, still living, were among the first settlers in 1836. The land sales took place at Pontotoc and the county rapidly settled up.

The Tombigbee river runs through the county from north to south, and numerous crreeks afford fine water power. There are several earthenware factories and some wool carding mills in the county. The river furnishes transportation during part of the year. Much of county is finely timbered. Some timber is being rafted out by the river. The principal varieties growing here are the oaks, pine, hickory, maple, beech, walnut, gum and cypress. This is a hilly county, with fertile valleys, and the chief products are corn, cotton, fruits of all kinds, oats and some wheat. The county abounds in good water from never-failing springs. Many fine streams run into the Tombigbee in this county.
Several references to Holland and Sarah having moved to Arkansas prompted me to search there. I found the following:

Obituary from The Daily Corinthian of Alcorn CO. MS:

December 30, 1902

The remains of Word Lindsey, who died in a St. Louis hospital, were received here yesterday and interred in Henry cemetery. He was about 21 and had both legs cut off by an Iron Mountain train in Arkansas several months ago. He was carried to St. Louis and placed in the railroad hospital, and died from the injuries received.

Letter from John Micajah Lindsey to Benjamin S Lindsey, dated 24 July 1910:
"we had three boys ... the second Homer Word, was run over by a train in west Arkansas and hd both legs cut off seven years ago last November and died in the hospital in St. Louis 40 days after the misfortune. Your aunt and I were with him from the time we could get there until he died and brought him home to bury."

43rd Regiment, Mississippi Infantry

43rd Infantry Regiment was formed during the summer of 1862 with eleven companies. Some of its members were Kemper and Noxubee Counties. After fighting at Iuka and Corinth, the unit was assigned to General L. Hebert's Brigade, Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana, and was captured at Vicksburg in July, 1863. Exchanged, it went on to serve under Generals J. Adams and Lowry, Army of Tennessee. The 43rd participated in various conflicts throughout the Atlanta Campaign, then saw action in Tennessee and North Carolina. It reported 13 killed, 56 wounded, and 156 missing at Corinth, had 483 effectives in February, 1863, and during the Vicksburg siege lost 25 killed and 33 wounded. In December, 1863, only 1 officer and 36 men were present. On April 26, 1865, it surrendered. The field officers were Colonels Richard Harrison and William H. Moore, and Lieutenant Colonels James O.Banks, Richard W. Leigh, and Columbus Sykes.
During 1909, Mrs. Mollie Gaither of Fulton, submitted the following 19th century newspaper clipping to the Itawamba County News. The old newspaper clipping was printed in the October 14, 1909 edition of the newspaper. Below is a transcript of the old clipping:

At the breaking out of the Civil War in 1861, there were about 40 voters within the corporate limits of the town of Fulton, and 5 or 6 boys who were under age. Of that number, 18 were killed in battle and died of disease contracted in the army, towit: Eugene Clifton, died at Pensacola, Florida; J.W. Norwood, died at Savannah, Georgia; Henry Mulder, died at home; Geo. Mulder, died at home; M.M. Shelby, died; J.A. Wright, died; A.S. Fry, died at Dalton, Georgia; J.L. Holmes, killed at Resaca, Georgia; D.N. Owen, killed at Murfreesboro, Tennessee; J.J. LINDSEY, killed at Jonesboro, Georgia; S.S. Owen, killed near Appomattox, Virginia; W.A. Graham, killed at Mumfordsville, Kentucky; Pryor McWilliams, killed at Chickamauga, Tennessee; C.H. Walker, killed at Perryville, Kentucky; Dan Whitener, killed at Murfreesboro, Tennessee; Capt. B.F. Toomer, killed at Franklin, Tennessee; Frank Rogers, killed at Murfreesboro, Tennessee; John Guess, killed at Chickamauga, Tennessee. The corporate limits of Fulton was one square mile.
89 QUESTION? Was his middle name really Owen? His father-in-law was Owen Franklin. Is it possible that someone mixed up the two names, before knowing Rachel's father's name thinking that the son Owen Franklin Lindsey was named for his father?
Buried at Providence, at Red Bay, Itawamba Co. MS.

James Holland LINDSEY
95 See notes for Thomas Lindsey, son (supposedly) of Bazzle Lindsey and Elizabeth English. Thomas was born in 1843, the year before this James, although according to our records, Bazzle and Elizabeth were not married until 1848. Most likely one or more of the dates involved are incorrect, and we may have either James or Thomas attributed to the wrong mother.

From Eric Newsom:

Copies of the marriage bonds of Morris Roberts and Josiah Roberts, from the original bonds held in the North Carolina Archives, Rutherford Count
"State of North Carolina Rutherford County. William McSwain James Linsay We the subscribers are jointly and severally held firmly bound to Benjamin Williams, Esq Governor or his successors in office in the sum of five hundred pounds current money. The condition of this obligation is such that whereas the said Morris Roberts hath made application for a license for a marriage to the be celebrated between him and Mary Linsey--of the county aforesaid; now in case it shall not appear hereafter that there is any lawful cause to obstruct said marriage then this obligation to be paid otherwise remain in full force and virtue. William McSwain (seal) James Linsey (seal). ?? and delivered in the presence of ??Eilkins. 4 of February 1804"

"Rutherford County We the subscribers are jointly and severally held and firmly bound to James Turner Esq governor of North Carolina and his successors in office in the sum of five hundred pounds current money to be void on condition that whereas--Josiah Roberts hath made application and obtained license for marriage to be celebrated between the said Josiah Roberts--and Miss Mary Linsey--of the county aforesaid now if it shall not appear hereafter that there is any lawful reasons or cause to obstruct said marriage then this obligation to be void and of none effect otherways remain in full force and virtue in law Sealed and Acknowledged this 1st day of September Anno Domini 1803. Attest Wm. McBrayer. Josiah Roberts (seal) Morris Roberts (seal)." There is no question that Josiah Roberts was the son of Morris Roberts. Morris by gift deed in 1800 gave land "to son Josiah for love and affection..." I have a copy of this deed. Eric Newsom

Subject: Durham-Carlton - Surry Co. NC
Date: Thu, 21 Oct 1999 21:30:08 -0500 (EST)
From: (Robert Jordan)

Found another relationship between these two families in Surry Co. NC - they held land next to James Lindsey Sr. The following deed contains the metes and bounds and is as complete as I could copy. Brief explanation of the measurements - one chain = 66 feet, one pole = 16.5 feet, N45W means half way between north and west. There are 90 degrees between north and west, so start at north and go 45 degrees to the west.

DB E-451, dated 11 Aug 1789: Indenture between John Durham of Spartingburg (Spartanburg) SC and (to) Lindsey Carlton of Surry Co. NC for 10pds. - land in Surry Co. near the round hill on waters of the N Fork of Deep Creek beginning at a stake, then N70W five poles to a stake, north 51 chains to a stake, west 20 chains to the branch, then down sd branch to the mouth to a Spanish Oak, then by a marked line agreed on to a Turkey Oak and 143 poles then continued on near the same as was along the sd. marked line 66 poles to the begining - containing 100 acres. Signed John Durham. Witnesses Simon Hadley, Jcob Dobbins. Date on the record was 8 May 1789. Recorded by oath of Dobbins May, 1790.

This is one of the worst surveying jobs found in the records, but it has the same spot locations as one of James Lindsey's deeds. Thus, these people had land next to each other. The normal going rate for this type of land was about 60-70 pounds Sterling. The reason this type of money was used (English) was that each state had their own currency. The cost of this land was 10 pounds - showing that it was discounted greatly - usually for family members. There are two dates on this deed. Aug 1789 and May 1789. I would think the deed was written in SC in May and entered SC in August and someone hand carried it to Surry Co. The deed was actually recorded one year later.

From Bob Jordan's "Lindsey Book":
At the present time, John Lindsey has been traced to 1800 Rutherford Co. NC. Deed, census, and tax records have traced his move to Warren Co. KY in 1809, with his probable brother Caleb Lindsey. Tax records showed he moved to Grayson Co. KY about 1820. He then moved to Butler Co. KY in 1824 and stayed only a few years. Apparently, the two oldest sons of Caleb and John left KY for the Indiana Illinois area in 1828 to explore land opportunities. Caleb and John's families then moved up the road to Spencer Co. IN (about a three day ride) in 1829. This is where the two brothers split. Caleb took his family down the Ohio River to a landing in Illinois where he settled in Jackson County. Many of John's sons returned to Butler Co. KY after John died. Perhaps the climate and fanning opportunities were not good in Spencer Co., but I have a feeling they just longed for the home turf of their younger, perhaps happier years. Other sons of John stayed in Spencer Co., IN. That is why I was born in Indiana.
We know John Lindsey married a Terry (?) by 1800. John Lindsey was located in the 1800 Rutherford Co. census with no children. His first child was born 1801, so John was probably married just before the census was taken in late 1799 or early 1800. After John died in 1837, his wife Terry Lindsey was listed in the 1840 census of Spencer Co. IN. One deed record in Butler Co. KY in 1826 listed John's wife as Terry also. Then on the death certificate of James Lindsey, their son, mentioned her name as Therisa no maiden name. The marriage could have taken place in either Spartanburg Co. SC or Rutherford Co. NC. The different family members are each noted by a number. For instance, John Lindsey's number is 1. His first born is 11, and his second born is 12. The first born of 11 is 111, and the first born of 12 is 121. This may be a little clumsy because as the number of generations increase, the larger an individual's number becomes, but we can also quickly find the relationship between generations from one person to another."
Grave stone found by Kenneth Lindsey 1972 Oak Hill Cemetery. The stone was not found by this author on a trip there in 1974. Age brackets in census records below show John was born 1775 80.

1800 Rutherford Co. NC page 125 (alphabetical): John Lindsey 00100 00100. Shows age 16 26 and wife same age bracket, no children thus married 1799 1800 and born 1774 84.

John Lindsey moved to Warren Co. KY by August, 1808, proved by the birth of their son James Lindsey. James' birthplace was always listed in the census records as Kentucky.

Warren Co. KY Tax lists: Caleb Lindsey first appeared 1809 with 122a on Green River, which had been patented by J. Lambert. He had one tax poll 21 or over, none under 21, none 16 21, 2 horses and no slaves. There was no tax book for 1810, but in 1811 John Lindsey appeared with the same 122a and exactly the same "other" information. This was an original patent by J. Lambert. It is not clear if Caleb gave the land to John, allowed him to use the land as long as he paid tax, or if John's name was John Caleb Lindsey. Census records do show both Caleb and John in 1810 Warren Co. John was also taxed for another 100a which had been patented by Philip Jones. John was not taxed on the extra 100a in 1812. The 122a was listed as entered by J. Lambert and patented by Philip Jones. Deed records show the 100a was sold by Caleb (of Grayson Co.) to David Simmons (on Little Beaver Dam). The 122a was taxed under John's name through 1819. The 100a was probably taxed under Simmons’ name. In 1819, John was also shown as being taxed on 305a in Grayson Co. on Bar (Bear?) Creek, which proves where he went.

Mr. B. S. Lindsey
Baltimore, MD

My Dear Nephew:

Yours of the 20th to hand this A.M. Yes, I was suprised, but agreeably so, to get a letter from any of you. I used to correspond with Fred a great deal, but know nothing of the rest of you children since his death. Mary Lee spent one night with us several years ago on her way to New Decatur to visit Jennie, and had her little girl with her and promised to call on her way back and spend several days with us, but failed to do so. Ben I am glad you wrote me and expressed a desire to know more of your people than you do. I am not well enough up on our ancestors to help you very much. Your grandfather Lindsey's name was Holland and [he] was born in South Carolina and moved with his father to middle Tennessee when he was only three years old and then moved to Alabama when he was only a plow boy, and from there moved to Mississippi, and raised his familiy consisting of five boys and three girls. My oldest brother, James, was in the 43rd Mississippi Regiment and was killed at Jonesboro, Georgia on the retreat from Atlanta in June 1864, and brother Lee and George was in the 26th Miss. Regiment and brother Lee was discharged at Bowlinggreen Ky., and George was captured at Fort Donelson and died in Indianpolis, Ind. Brother Tom was with an Arkansas regiment. I have forgotten the number, and he was captured twice, was in prison three months the first time and twenty one months the last time and was released after the surrender and got home in June 1865. Your father and myself enlisted in the 2nd Mississippi Cavalry and served sixteen months, or until the end of the war.

Well, Ben, my wife's name was Sarah Williams and we had eight daughters, namely: Cornelia, Alice, Edna, Sallie, Modenia, Gertrude, Ethel, and Ruby. All are living but Gertrude, the oldest, she married Mr. Greer, the second married Mr. McDonald, 3rd, Mr. Riley, 4th, not married, 5th Mr. Horton, 6th Mr. Riley, 7th Mr. Miller, 8th Mr. Burbank. And we had three boys, the oldest named James Holland, lives in Corinth, the second, Homer Word, was run over by a train in west Arkansas and had both legs cut off seven years ago last November and died in the hospital in St. Louis 40 days after the misfortune. Your aunt and I were with him from the time we could get there until he died and brought him home to bury. Walter the youngest son lives here in Mobile since the 6th January last and is collecting for P.F. Collier and Son, New York. He has been working for them 5 1/2 years. And I had the misfortune to lose my wife two years ago last February. And in the fall after her death I took Rheumatism and have not been able to do much work since. Have been down with Walter since the 7th of June. Don't know how long I will be here. Some time perhaps.

Yes, your Uncle Tom is very low and has been for some time. I had a letter from your Aunt Caroline some two weeks ago. And before I left Corinth Sallie had several letters from Y.C.B.L. Hoping that you will find time to write me again. I will ring off for this time with best wishes for you and yours. I'm your devoted uncle.

J.M. Lindsey

NOTES: B S Lindsey was Benjamin Shelton Lindsey, son of Bassel Lee Lindsey and Martha Ann Shelton.
According to a list online, John was in Co. A of the 2nd MS, the "Tishomingo Riflemen"
According to Hugh J Horton, John helped to build the first brick church building used by the Foote St. Church of Christ in Corinth, which is across the street from the currently used building.
Tombstone placed 1 May 1999. According to an article in the New Albany Gazette, 9 Jun 1999, "The Saltillo area had been home for the Confederate soldier for most of his life. He was born in 1848 and when the war started he was only 13. He joined at the age of 16. According to war records, he served with the 2nd Mississippi Cavalry, Company C and suffered a hernia when thrown from a mule. No other injuries were noted. Lindsey was in Macon, Miss. when the conclusion of the war brought surrender."
