I'm searching for a John LINDSEY born near RICHMOND, Virginia, on 5 OCT 1769 (DAR records erroneously record date as 1760). Family tradition has him emigrating from Rockbridge County, VA, to Ross County, Ohio, circa 1810-1812, where he married Sarah REA on 11 NOV 1813 (and thereafter moved to Marion County, Ohio). John Lindsey died on 25 FEB 1855 in Marion County. Sarah Rea was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia, 25 OCT 1783 and her father (Joseph Rea) was born near Philadelphia, PA, in JAN 1754. Supposedly, John Lindsey was in Rockbridge County, VA, at the time Joseph Rea decided to immigrate to Ohio with his wife and kids, and so John Lindsey accompanied them--and ended up falling in love with Joseph's daughter Sarah en route. John Lindsey & Sarah Rea had two sons survive to adulthood--James Heaton Lindsey (b. 23 NOV 1814, d. 19 FEB 1881, m. Elon Stiverson 17 JAN 1839) and Joseph Rea Lindsey (b. 3 AUG 1820, d. 13 JUN 1881, m. Lydia Cope 5 JAN 1843). Does anyone have any information on John Lindsey?
