Additions to Multiple Postings: Jane Brooks Lindsey, Mark Lindsey, Thomas R. Brooks, David Dinsmore Lindsey, Nancy Lindsey Morris

I have continued adding new material to previous postings here, material I found on my visit in October to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, and also material I obtained digitally from the Lawrence County, Alabama, archives following that visit. Here’s a summary of new items I’ve added to previous postings in the past two weeks or so:

William Burke Lindsey (1812 – 1867/1870): Additional Information

I have now added new material to a posting I made in May 2020 about William Burke Lindsey (1812 – 1867/1870), son of Mark Lindsey and Mary Jane Dinsmore of Wayne County, Kentucky, and Morgan County, Alabama. This new material abstracts documents I copied on my trip in October to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, about which I’ve posted here in recent weeks, Here’s the information I’ve added to the posting linked above:

Recently opened a Mastodon account….

I recently opened an account at Mastodon, and am posting a notice about that here since there’s a verification option at Mastodon that allows a new user to verify her/his Mastodon account by posting about it at another account owned by that new user. You’re welcome to link to me at Mastodon, if you wish, and can do so by clicking the link above, which will take you to my page there. If you’re not interested in any of this, please ignore this message — it’s here to permit me to link to it so that I can verify that I am the real-life person owning this new Mastodon account!

Thomas Whitlock (abt. 1745 – 1830) of Louisa and Wythe Counties, Virginia, and Cumberland County, Kentucky: Cumberland County Estate Documents

Cumberland County, Kentucky, Will Bk. B, pp. 428-430

This posting is a continuation of a previous one discussing Thomas Whitlock’s final years in Cumberland County, Kentucky. That posting ended with a transcription of the will Thomas made on 22 January 1824 in Cumberland, County, which was proved in Cumberland County at May court 1830. As my final comments in the posting I’ve just linked state, in my view, Thomas likely died in 1830, perhaps in May or shortly before May. In what follows, I’ll discuss Thomas Whitlock’s estate documents, which include an estate inventory and appraisal, an account of the sale of his estate, and a final settlement.

Thomas Whitlock (abt. 1745 – 1830) of Louisa and Wythe Counties, Virginia, and Cumberland County, Kentucky: Cumberland County Years

Cumberland County, Kentucky, Will Bk. B, pp. 423-4

It has been quite some time, hasn’t it, since I told readers following my series of postings about Thomas Whitlock (abt. 1745 – 1830) that, having disposed of his land in Wythe County, Virginia, in May 1805 and moved to Cumberland County, Kentucky (perhaps with a brief sojourn in Surry County, North Carolina), I’d complete Thomas’s story by discussing his years in Kentucky? After I promised to do that, I spent two weeks at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, and since that time, have been busy sharing notes here on items I found during that research trip which fill in gaps in previous postings on this blog.
