William Lindsay, 1785 Orange Co. VA
Posted by: Carol Barron (ID *****8011) Date: November 30, 2009 at 07:27:31
  of 2443

On the Orange Co. VA 1785 census in the precinct of William Moore is a William Lindsay w/2 white souls next to George Payne, Thomas Payne (father of James Payne m my Eliz. Harris)

Does anyone have any information on this William Lindsay as to his land deeds, children, etc.?

Caleb Lindsay is also in this same precinct as well as my Harris family of Thomas Harris & Lindsay Harris. Caleb Lindsay's name did appear on my Harris estate docs in 1783 & 1803 in Orange Co. VA.

Thomas Harris [Jr.] d 1782 Orange Co. VA named eldest son Lindsay Harris...since I have never found the maiden name of Thomas' wife, Sabra/Saborey/Sabrina, I'm always looking at the name of Lindsay for her.

My earliest records for Thomas Harris was first found in St. Martins Parish, Hanover Co. VA in 1748 w/land in Amelia Co. Tithables List, then with wife Sabra in Louisa Co. VA from 1763-67 & lastly, they moved to Orange Co. in 1767 where he left his will in 1782 naming sons, Lindsay, Thomas, John, Lewis, & daus. Elizabeth m James Payne & Mary m Lewis Walker.
