In my first posting about Frances Rebecca Lindsey and husband Samuel Hiram Kellogg, I stated that I have long been puzzled by the question of how Samuel and Frances met, when he had roots in Wayne County, Tennessee, and hers were in Lawrence County, Alabama. I wrote that I have repeatedly tried to answer this question without finding a satisfactory explanation.

When I work to figure out certain pieces of information about the life of Frances Rebecca Lindsey and her husband Samuel Hiram Kellogg, I come up against a number of puzzles. I have never been able to solve these despite repeated attempts to do so. They include the question of when, where, and how Frances and Samuel met and the question of Samuel’s antecedents prior to his marriage to Frances Rebecca. 

I now have some answers to the two questions posed above. Please see this subsequent posting.
