As I stated at the end of my last posting about Mark Lindsey (1774-1848), I now want to share with you what I know of Mark’s children Dennis, Nancy (Morris), William Burke, Fielding Wesley, and David Dinsmore Lindsey. Dennis (1794-1836) was the oldest son of Mark and his wife Mary Jane Dinsmore, and was given the name Dennis, I have concluded, because Mark’s father was almost certainly an older Dennis Lindsey (abt. 1755-1795) of Spartanburg County, South Carolina.
