As I noted in my previous posting, William Lindsey, son of Isaac Lindsey and Mary Tate, filed an appeal for the succession of his father’s estate on 19 July 1851 in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana — though it appears likely that Isaac had died in April 1833, leaving five minor children for Mary to provide for.[1] At some point before 1850, Mary remarried to Nehemiah Newman and appears with him on the 1850 census in St. Helena Parish.[2] William Lindsey’s appeal for the succession of the estate of Isaac Lindsey states that Isaac’s heirs were (in addition to widow Mary) Matilda Lindsey, wife of Jimeson Carter; Malinda Lindsey, wife of Jerry Thompson; Lucinda Lindsey, wife of Samuel Newman; Mary Lindsey, wife of John Brabham; Harvey Lindsey, minor; and William himself. In this posting, I will share the information I have on the children of Isaac Lindsey and Mary Tate.

As a follow-up to my postings about Robert Phillips, who married Margaret, daughter of Dennis Lindsey of Granville County, and about David Phillips (and here), I’d like to share with you now some scattered (and desultory) notes on Phillips families in Granville, Orange, and Chatham Counties, North Carolina. As the two postings I’ve just linked tell you, there are many connections between David Phillips and his kinship network and the kinship network of Dennis Lindsey, and David followed the very same migration path that Dennis followed in the same time frame, from Richmond to Spotsylvania (later Orange) County, Virginia, then to Edgecombe (later Granville) County, North Carolina (and, in David’s case, finally to Orange County, North Carolina).

A Long Introduction: Robert Phillips the Mystery Man

I’ve been dithering over the next installment of my postings about the children of Dennis Linchey/Lindsey (abt. 1700-1762) because, to be honest, Robert Phillips is a mystery man for me. The more I try to find new information about him, the more confused I am. I had decided to follow my posting about Dennis’s daughter Catherine and her husband Roger Thornton with one about Robert Phillips and his wife Margaret. We know from Dennis’ will that one of his daughters married Robert Phillips, and I’ve told you why I suspect that daughter was Margaret and not Elizabeth, the other married daughter at the time the will was made, in addition to their sister Catherine, who we know, from sources other than the will, married Roger Thornton.
