Though I have found no record of a
David Lindsey as a soldier in the Revolutionary War, there is some evidence that
there may have been one. In 1831, a David Lindsey from South Carolina
petitioned to the House of Representatives for a pension for his service in the
Revolutionary War. I'm not sure if this is the same man who lived in
Newberry County because that man did not appear on the census in Newberry Co.
