As the previous posting, to which this posting is a footnote, indicates, the 1910 federal census states that Alexander Cobb Lindsey and Mary Ann Green had thirteen children,[1] but the birth and death register of their family bible, of which the posting I’ve just linked provides pictures, lists the names and birthdates of only twelve children.[2] The birth entries for all children except the last child of the couple, Emmitt, are in the handwriting of Alex C. Lindsey. No family records that I have seen provide the name of a thirteenth child.

The children of Alex C. and Mollie Green Lindsey are as follows:

As my last posting notes, both the 1900 and 1910 federal censuses indicate that William T. Hunter and Margaret Tranquilla Lindsey had had 10 children, of whom five were living in 1900 and three in 1910.[1] The 1870 federal census lists a male child in their household who appears in no other records, and whose name is often transcribed from that census as Mitchell, though, to me, the name seems Trichell rather than Mitchell. It’s clear to me the census taker has erroneously listed William and Margaret’s daughter Ida Tranquilla, whose age and position among their children matches the Mitchell/Trichell of the 1870 census, as a son. There was no son Mitchell in William and Margaret’s family.

Margaret Tranquilla Lindsey, daughter of Dennis Lindsey (1794-1836) and Jane Brooks, was born 14 January 1834 at Oakville in Lawrence County, Alabama. This date of birth is found on her tombstone at Liberty Baptist cemetery, Martin, Red River Parish, Louisiana.[1] Margaret’s son William Marshall Hunter pastored Liberty church for a number of years. It was founded by Reverend John Dupree, grandfather of Marshall’s wife Laura Jane Dupree.
