- 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.
