Source: The Lindsey Manuscript


In March of 1999 I found on the Jackson County, Illinois Genealogical Webpage a document called The Lindsay Manuscript. I did capture for my own reference the following paragraphs.

"I will tell you about old Uncle John Lindsay, another of my great grandfather's sons. He married Catherine Sumner, they lived south of his father, they had 4 boys and 2 girls. Margaret married a Qualls, they had a son. Qualls died and Margaret married uncle Charles Baysden, they raised 2 boys and 3 girls. Charles married John Jones's daughter. Tom married an Ellis, she died and he married Mary Bays (Ragins). Uncle Charles Baysden had been married before and had 1 boy and 1 girl, his son George was a fine man. Margaret had a good home, one of her daughters married Morgan Moutell, one married Doc Thompson, one married Jesse Franklin, one married David Ellis, he died and she married Henry Thompson.

Lewis, the oldest son of old Uncle John, married and lived in Pomona, Ill. I don't know how many children they had. He lived to be 97 years old. One of his girls married Sherman Moutell, they lived close to the church.

Mary, next of old Uncle John's girls, married William Crowell. They had 3 boys. Later he died and she married Peter Cook. Ely Lindsay died and was never married. Thomas, the next, he married and farmed awhile then took up saw milling. He sawed for Bill Lindsay. I think Tom and his wife separated. The youngest of Uncle John's was John, he married and bought out the heirs on the old home place, and lived there all his life. I don't know the names of his children, one got killed by some heavy lumber falling on him, another could tinker with watches. That is all of Uncle John's children I remember. He lived to be 70 years old."
