As the 15 November 1907 remembrance of Dennis Edward Lindsey Sr. and his wife Sarah Jane Barnes by W.L. Clayton discussed in the previous posting states, Dennis and Jennie Barnes Lindsey had only one child, a son Dennis Edward, who appears to have been a junior.[1] Clayton notes that when his mother died in November 1907, her son Dennis was living “somewhere in the West.” He also states that Jennie had raised the two daughters of her second husband William B. Fulton, who was a widower when she married him in 1869. The 1870 federal census lists William and Jennie Fulton with her son Edward in their household, along with William Fulton’s daughters Margaret and Jimmie.[2] The two Fulton daughters are found in the household of William and Jennie again in 1880,[3] with Jennie’s son Dennis Edward Lindsey no longer enumerated there, since he had apparently left for Texas at this point, as his Texas Ranger Sketches biography discussed in the last posting indicates.[4]
