Mike -
I believe the John Lindsey family that you found in Giles Co., maybe the ones I am looking for. The biggest problem I have is that I have been using info generated by family members that have passed away - and I'm sure the names have been mixed up or at least the relational aspect.

I do show a Nancy Lindsey in relation to John Lindsey in family records. And I know that John's daugther Alvertia (Alberta) had a middle name beginning with J (could be Josephine). I do have a copy of her marriage license and it shows that she was married to James N. Cowan on August 18, 1864 at the home of John Lindsey of Smyth Co.. However it also lists her birthplace as Tazewell Co. The 1880 census lists her at the age of 34 so she would have been born approx 1846 - being 18 at the time of her marriage. I don't know if any of this will help.

I really appreciate your help in this matter. This part of my family is kind of a mystery to me. My aunts have tried for a long time to locate their family ancestry but unfortunately have had little luck - most likely because their info is a little mixed up. Again thanks for your help!
