|Brenny||RE: Isacc Lindsay # 88598171|
In 1767 one Isaac LINDSAY and four other South Carolinians came across the mountains to the Cumberland River and down that stream to the mouth of Stones River on a hunting and exploring expedition. Presumably this was the same Isaac LINDSAY who came with a great many other hunters and explorers in 1780 to take advantage of their explorations. Isaac LINDSAY'S name it affixed to the compact. He settled first at Eaton's Station and was a member of the first Davidson County Court. Later he was granted 800 acres on the north side of the Cumberland River, in Sumner County, and going there settled on a river bluff, about a mile south of the present site of Saundersville. Mr. LINDSAY was a member of the first County Court (1786) of Sumner County. The bluff where he settled and the island nearby have ever since borne his name. Isaac Lindsey was one of the stout hearted pioneers of Sumner County. He came from Virginia in 1780 and settled at Eaton's Station, on the east side of the river, at the first headlands below Nashville. He was one of the signers of the Cumberland Compact, May 13, 1780, and was one of the first justices of the peace of Davidson County, elected January 7, 1783. In the same year he removed to Sumner County and located near Sandersville, at Lindsey's Bluff. In 1786, when Sumner County was organized, he was elected one of its first magistrates. In that year he embraced religion, connected himself with the Methodist Church and soon afterwards began to preach. He was a man of the first order of talent, a good man and a useful citizen. He died at home in Sumner County at an advanced age, loved, honored and respected by all who knew him. Edmund Lindsey born 1697 in Long Marsh married Elizabeth Beasley. Edmund and Elizabeth had a son, Abraham Lindsey who was born 1742 in Long Marsh, now Clarke County, VA. Abraham had a son Isaac Lindsey who was born in 1742 in Long Marsh, now Clarke County, Va. Isaac died 13 March 1812 in Sumner County, TN. Isaac Lindsey (son of Abraham Lindsey), one of the "Lindsey's of Long Marsh". One of the original "Long Hunters" he was very familiar with the Cumberland territory long before serving as an advance scout for the Robertson party. James Harrod noted in his writings that he had met Lindsey and a hunting party at Station Camp Creek in 1765. Lindsey had been one of the original signers of the Watauga pact.
The family cemetery that the Lindseys were buried in was up on the bluff overlooking the Cumberland River. The historical society of Sumner County told me that sometime in the 1970's the graveyard was bulldozed into the river to make room for big homes. Now a days that is illegal, but back then? Not so much.

|Krisette Spangler||RE: John Harness memorial 12910822|
I am the great great granddaughter of Elizabeth Parlee Harness. She was the daughter of John Thomas Harness and Sophia Treadwell. I think in my research I determined that William Isaac Harness was not part of the same line. Although, I had seen some genealogists put William Granville Harness' wife Sarah Barnes as sisters with the Rebecca who is married to Thomas in your line. Any information you have regarding that possibility would be very much appreciated.

I'm very interested in the parentage of John Harness. I know his father is Thomas Harness, but do you know who is the father of Thomas? Any information you have on this line would be greatly appreciated.
|Doug Lindsey||RE: Manervia Lindsey|
I have two Oliver Lindsey's in my family tree that I know of.
Oliver Jefferson Lindsey 1877-1933
1st wife: Minnie Wise 185-1953
2nd wife: Frances L Gammill 1879-1899
Oliver Jefferson Lindsey 1838-1877
I know he was married but I don't know his wife's name. They had a daughter; Mias H Lindsey 1860-?
I did a search on Ancestry.com and I didn't find any information about a marriage.
Happy Family Tree Climbing
