Or, Subtitled:

As we’ve seen, researchers have placed the birth of James Hollingsworth, the seventh child (and fourth son) of Jacob Hollingsworth and Mary Brooks, between 1777-1780 in Guilford or Randolph County, North Carolina (Randolph was created from Guilford in 1779). In their classic accounts of the Hollingsworth and Harlan families, J. Adger Stewart and Alpheus Harlan both have James born in 1777.[1] Sadie Greening Sparks thinks that he was born in 1780.[2]

Alexander Cobb Lindsey, the seventh child of Mark Jefferson Lindsey and Mary Ann Harrison, was born 10 March 1858 in Union Parish, Louisiana, and died 22 January 1947 at Shreveport, Caddo Parish, Louisiana.[1] His tombstone in Old Armistead Chapel Methodist cemetery at Coushatta, Red River Parish, gives his name as “Dr. A.L. Lindsey,” as does his obituary in the Shreveport Times newspaper on 23 January 1947.[2] The tombstone, which was erected by his children for both Alex Lindsey and wife Mary Ann Green Lindsey following his death, incorrectly gives his date of death as 6 February 1947.[3]
