  • Notes 
    • 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.
      1784 (could not tell exact date - on previous page that was not sent)
      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.
