This posting is one in a series discussing the family of William Lindsey and Rachel Earnest of Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The series first discusses William and Rachel, then tracks their children. It begins with this linked posting, and can be followed from that posting down to the current one, if you click on each subsequent posting after you read the posting I have just linked. Dennis Lindsey was the last of the nine children of William and Rachel Lindsey. His tombstone in Magnolia Cemetery in Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia, where he’s buried with his second wife Mary S. Roman Lindsey, says that he was born in 1812 and died in 1879.[1]

This posting is a continuation of my discussion of the children of William Lindsey (1760/1770 – 1840) and Rachel Earnest of Spartanburg County, South Carolina. In two previous postings, I discussed William and Rachel’s children Cassandra, John, and Nicy Malinda, and then their children Elizabeth and Isaac. This posting focuses on the next two children in the family, William and Rachel’s sons Mark and Henry Lindsey.
