James Lindsey and Sarah Frost
Research by Susan Grabek


James Lindsey was the ancestor of L0047 of Lindsay Surname DNA project Group 2.  He married Sarah Frost.  James and Sarah Frost Lindsey migrated from South Carolina to Wilkinson Co., GA ca. 1814.

Since it is known from the book, Men of Mark in Georgia, that James Lindsey married Sarah Frost in South Carolina before migrating to Wilkinson Co., GA, it seems that James was probably a member of the Lindsey family (represented in DNA Group 2) that had migrated from Frederick Co., VA to Newberry Co., SC ca. 1770.  This family included John Lindsey Sr. (b. abt. 1700, d. 1787) and his wife, Alce.  I think that James Lindsey, husband of Sarah Frost, was probably a grandson of John Lindsey Sr.

John Lindsey Sr. had four sons: James, John Jr. (Col. John Lindsey), Thomas, and Samuel.  Two of these sons, James and John Jr., each named sons James.  Of the two grandsons of John Lindsey Sr. named James, John Jr.'s son James was probably the man who died in Newberry Co. in 1841, whose will mentioned a brother named Humphrey.  It is known from family bible information that John Lindsey Jr. had sons named James and Humphrey, so it appears that the man named James Lindsey who died in Newberry Co. in 1841 could not have been the man who married Sarah Frost, and who later lived in Wilkinson Co., GA.

I think that James Lindsey who married Sarah Frost was probably the son of James Lindsey Sr. (b. by 1731, d. 1799) and his wife Ruth.  James Lindsey Sr. died testate in Newberry Co. in 1799.  His will mentioned two sons:  Moses was listed first and named as the elder son, and James was listed last (after five daughters) and named as the younger son.  If the order of the names of the children in the will was chronological, then James was the youngest child of James Lindsey Sr. and his wife, Ruth.  (Note: It is thought by some researchers that Moses Lindsey first married Sibella Wells, the daughter of Humphrey and Abigail Lindsey Wells, and second, a Sarah Frost.)

Only the birth year of one of the children of James Lindsey Sr. is known.  Moses Lindsey's Revolutionary War Pension record shows that he was born in 1761.  So James Lindsey, the younger brother, was probably born at least eight years later than Moses if he was born after five sisters.  This gives James a rough birth year of 1770, which is consistent with the 1820 census of Wilkinson Co., GA, which showed James as being born by 1775.

Following is a timeline of data that supports the speculation that James Lindsey of Newberry Co., SC, son of James Lindsey and Ruth Lindsey, was the husband of Sarah Frost.  There is much data included concerning the family of Samuel Lindsey, who is represented in DNA Group 2 by L0029.  This data is included because Samuel and his family appear to have been closely involved with that of James Lindsey, the subject of this research.  Samuel Lindsey was a son of  Thomas Lindsey, and a first cousin to James Lindsey.  The records indicate that Samuel and James Lindsey traveled together from Newberry Co., SC, to Pendleton Co., where they lived for a time ca. 1810.  James Lindsey then migrated to Wilkinson Co., GA, as did Samuel's widow, Nancy/Ann Shearer Lindsey and her parents, James and Theodocia Shearer.  James Lindsey remained in Wilkinson Co., while the Shearers and Nancy Lindsey moved on to Henry Co., GA sometime after 1820.

1799:  Newberry Co., SC: James Lindsey died.  His will showed that he had two sons, Moses the elder and James the younger.

1804: Newberry Co., SC: Jacob Frost died. Thomas Lindsey (son of John Lindsey Sr.) and Samuel Wells (grandson of John Lindsey Sr., son of Abigail Lindsey Wells and Dr. Humphrey Wells) were administrators of Jacob's estate, along with Jacob's widow, Sarah Frost (My speculation is that Jacob and Sarah Frost had a daughter named Sarah, who married James Lindsey).

1810: Pendleton Co., SC: James Lindsay (speculated son of James Lindsey Sr.), Samuel Lindsay (grandson of John Lindsey Sr., son of Thomas Lindsey), James Sherrer (Shearer, father-in-law of Samuel Lindsey), and Richard Speaks (Speake, grandson of John Lindsey Sr., son of Sarah Lindsey Speake) were enumerated on the census

1812: Pendleton Co., SC(?): Samuel Lindsey died. The family bible record showed that Samuel was born in 1773.  He married Nancy/Ann Shearer, the daughter of James and Theodocia Shearer.  Samuel and Ann had children: Thomas b. 1806, James b. 1808, Lydia b. 1809, and Samuel b. 1812.  (This fits the 1810 census data for Pendleton Co.)

1815: Newberry Co., SC: Thomas Lindsey (son of John Sr.) died.  His estate records showed that the legatees were: Wife, Lydia, sons Isaac, Charles, Jacob, Jared, John, Samuel Lindsey's heirs, and daughters Charity, Polly, Keziah and Alce. 

1816: Wilkinson Co., GA: James Lindsey was appointed as a tax receiver.

1817: Wilkinson Co., GA: Samuel Wells (son of Abigail Lindsey Wells), Annie Lindsey (Nancy/Ann Shearer, widow of Samuel Lindsey), and Theodoshis Shirien (Theodocia, wife of James Shearer) all joined the Ramah Primitive Baptist Church.

1820: Wilkinson Co., GA: Samuel Wells, James Shearer, and James Lindsey were enumerated on the census.  Sarah Frost (speculated mother-in-law of James Lindsey) lived next door to James Lindsey and John Frost lived nearby. (By 1830, the Shearer's and Ann/Nancy Lindsey moved to Henry Co., GA.) 

1820: Henry Co., GA; James Shearer deposed for Moses Lindsey that he was well acquainted with Moses Lindsey during the Revolutionary War (page 11).

1820 - 1828: Wilkinson Co., GA: James Lindsey served several terms as sheriff.

1821: Wilkinson Co., GA: Janette Frost married Joseph Boyd (Note: Jonathan Frost, believed to have been a son of Jacob and Sarah Frost, married a Nancy Boyd, who was b. in GA)

1823: Butts Co., GA: George T. Speake was appointed the guardian of the minor children of Samuel Lindsey, deceased.

Before 1830: Wilkinson Co., GA: James Lindsey died.  Widow Sarah made a return on his estate.

1830: Census

1832: Henry Co., GA: James Shearer made a deposition to receive a Revolutionary War service pension.  He said that he served in Newberry District, South Carolina, under Col. Lindsey and Capt. Thomas Lindsey (page 9). Shearer also stated that Richard Speakes, formerly of Newberry Co., but now of Butts Co., GA, was a witness to some of his military service.  He stated that after leaving Newberry Co., he had lived in Wilkinson Co. before moving to Henry Co. Shearer said that Sarah Cannon, widow of Col. Cannon knew him, as did Sarah Speaks of SC, widow of Col. Speaks.  He said that Hezekiah Speaks of (unreadable) County knew of his service (page 12).

1832:  Williamson Co., TN: Moses Lindsey made a deposition to receive a pension for Revolutionary War Service.  He stated that he was well acquainted with Capt. John Frost.  John Frost of Williamson Co. deposed that he was well acquainted with Moses Lindsey (page 9).

1833: Butts Co., GA: Richard Speake deposed that he had been in the war with James Shearer in Newberry Co., SC (pages 25-26).

1835: Henry Co., GA: Samuel Wells, James M. Lindsey, and Thomas Lindsey (James M. and Thomas, sons of Samuel Lindsey, d. 1812) deposed that James Shearer had applied for a pension in 1832, and that he had died in 1833, leaving a widow, Theodocia Shearer (page 40).

1836: Wilkinson Co., GA: Isaac Lindsey married Martha Moore (Isaac, son of James and Sarah Frost Lindsey. Children: Green, John, Sarah F., Mary, Iverson M., Martha, Samuel, and Eli). 

Note: Some female Lindsey's who married in Wilkinson Co. during this time period may have been daughters of James and Sarah Frost Lindsey.  Ruth Lindsey, who married James Johns (listed as Calton Johns on the 1850 census) in 1831 is of particular interest, because her children's names match Lindsey names from this family.

1837: Henry Co., GA: Samuel Wells Sr. and Mary Wells deposed that they had known James and Theodocia Shearer since the Revolutionary War.  Samuel said that he had known James Shearer until his death in 1833.  Both Samuel and Mary said that they had often heard Theodocia's mother speak of the marriage of Theodocia and James Shearer (page 35).

1841 - 1852: Wilkinson Co., GA: Isaac Lindsey married numerous couples as a Justice of the Peace.

1843: Wilkinson Co., GA: John Lindsey married Susan Matilda Moore (John, son of James and Sarah Frost Lindsey. Children: James F., Joel, Isaac, John G., and Jesse M.) (Susan's father was Jesse Moore, b. 1798 in SC)

1850: Wilkinson Co., GA: Sarah (Frost) Lindsey, widow of James Lindsey, died.  The mortality index showed that she was age 66 (b. 1784), and that she had been born in SC.

1850: Wilkinson Co., GA: Isaac Lindsey, administrator of the estate of James Lindsey, advertised land for sale.  The land had belonged to his father, James Lindsey.

1851: Wilkinson Co., GA: Isaac Lindsey, administrator of the estate of James Lindsey, advertised land for sale.  The land had belonged to his father, James Lindsey.

1852: Wilkinson Co., GA: James M. Levitt petitioned the court to order Isaac Lindsey, administrator of the estate of Sarah Lindsey, to issue title to land that he (Levitt) had purchased from William Tindall, who had purchased the land from Sarah Lindsey.  Sarah Lindsey had died before transferring title to the land.

1854-58: Wilkinson Co., GA: Isaac Lindsey was a tax collector.

JOHN WILLIAM LINDSEY, Pension Commissioner of the State of Georgia, was born on a farm four miles from
Irwinton, Wilkinson county, Middle Georgia, on August
1, 1843. His parents were Isaac and Martha (Moore) Lind-
sey. His father, Isaac Lindsey, was a substantial farmer.
The family is of Scotch-Irish origin ; the first ancestor in
America came from Ireland to America and settled in South
Carolina prior to the Revolution. A great-uncle, John Lindsey,
distinguished himself as a soldier in the Patriot ranks at
the battles of Kings Mountain and Cowpens. James Lindsey,
grandfather of Col. Lindsey, married Sarah Frost in South
Carolina, and in 1814 they moved from Edgefield county, S. C.,
to Wilkinson county, Ga., where the family has since
resided.

Col. Lindsey, as a boy, attended the schools of Irwinton, but
his education was interrupted by the breaking out of the Civil
War in 1861. He promptly enlisted in the Confederate Army
as a private in Company I, Third Georgia Regiment, A. R.
Wright, Colonel. It was a regiment of young men, and made
a splendid fighting record. Col. Lindsey made an excellent
record as a soldier, never absent from his command except
when wounded. At the battle of Spottsylvania, May 14, 1864,
he was severely wounded, and even yet he suffers at times from
effects of the old wound. He was the youngest of three
brothers who served in the army. The oldest brother was
killed at Gettysburg; both the others served through the war.
and both were wounded.
At the close of the war Col. Lindsey, then a young man of
twenty-two, entered the law office of Col. Eli dimming, as a
clerk, studying law in the intervals of his work, and in November,
1868, was admitted to the bar by Judge Green Foster,

then presiding over the Ocmulgee Circuit. Col. Lindsey
entered actively on the practice of his profession at Irwinton
and bas continued the practice since. His present law partner
is the Hon. G. H. Carswell, of Irwinton, who looks after the
practice while Col. Liudsey is* in public service.
Col. Lindsey has given many years to the public service.
He served a number of terms as Mayor of irwinton, was a
member of the General Assembly in 1884-5, chairman of the
Hoard of Education 1892 to 1899, appointed a visitor to West
Point Military Academy by President Harrison in 1892,
elected in 1888 Solicitor-General of Ocmulgee Circuit by the
General Assembly to fill the unexpired term of Robert Whit-
field, resigned, appointed Commissioner of Pensions by Governor
Allen D. Candler in 1899, reappointed by Governor J. M.
Terrell in 190.'! and 190‹, then the office having been mai It-
elective, he was elected in October, 1908, by a majority vote
over several opponents, to serve another term.
On January 12, 1869, he married Julia F. Tucker, youngest
child of Judge John R. and Mary Rutherford (Mathis)
Tucker, of Washington county. Both the Tuckers and
Mathises are old Washington county families. Of this union
five children have been born, of whom three survive, Capt.
Julian R. Lindsey, of the Fifteenth Cavalry, U. S. Army,
graduated from West Point in 1892 and has seen active service
in Cuba, China and the Philippines; Mary Gertrude is
the wife of James A. Carswell, of Wilkinson county, who i~
associated with Col. Lindsey in his farming interests. and
Miss Annie Floreal Lindsey, who is her father's efficient and
capable assistant in the pension office.
Col. Lindsey is a consistent member of the Baptist Church.
Politically he is a lifelong Democrat, devoted to the principles
of his party, and zealous in its service. He believes that the
best way to promote the interests of State and nation and to
increase the happiness and prosperity of the people is by tht-
maintenance of a high standard of education and general training
of the young along practical as well as academic lines, by

JOHN WILLIAM LINDSEY 135


strict and impartial enforcement of law, by extensive and
systematic development of internal waterways, and by the
building of a complete system of public highways, giving to
every section quick and rapid transit for persons and commodities.
Col. Lindsey's popularity with the people of Georgia was
attested in the late election, and this popularity has been won
not by the arts of the demagogue but by the faithful performance
of every duty which has devolved upon him in life,
from the time when a boy of seventeen he shouldered his musket
to fight for his State, until the present when, with whitened
head, he labors for the good of the men who were his comrades
during those terrible years of war.

An excerpt:

"John Lindsey was the son of John Lindsey (d. 1787) and Alice Crosson. He resided in that area of Ninety Six District which became Newberry County." "Married to Elizabeth Humphrey, he was the father of seven children: Alice, Caleb, Humphrey, Joshua, John (1776-1864), James (1779-1841), and Elizabeth.  John Lindsey died sometime in 1795."

James Lindsey was listed as age 26-44.  He had a wife aged 16-25, and a son and daughter under the age of 10.  There was woman over age 45 in the household (Sarah, widow of Jacob Frost?) as well as a young man and woman, each age 16-25.  Samuel Lindsey lived next to James Lindsey.  He was age 26-45, and he had a wife the same age. He had two sons and a daughter under age 10.  James Sherrer was listed nearby James and Samuel Lindsey.  James Sherrer was age 45+ as was his neighbor, Richard Speaks.  James Sherer's son, Thomas, lived next door to Richard Speaks.

Sarah Frost had two males and three females living with her.  These were probably her children by Jacob. 

Nancy/Ann Lindsey would have been age 40 on this census.  Her children would have been ages 8m, 10f, 12m, and 14m.  Nancy and the children may have already moved on to Butts Co., where George T. Speake, the son of Richard Speake, was appointed guardian of Nancy's children in 1823.

Said Speak also appointed guardian for James, Lydia & Samuel Lindsey. Other heirs of said Samuel, which last are under the age of fourteen years".

Note by Susan:  I think that George F. Speak was George T. Speake, the son of Richard Speake and Margaret Tate.  Richard Speake was a son of Sarah Lindsey Speake and her husband, Thomas Speake.  Richard lived in Butts Co., GA during this time period.
