Copies of the marriage bonds of Morris Roberts and Josiah Roberts, from the original bonds held in the North Carolina Archives, Rutherford County:
"State of North Carolina Rutherford County. William McSwain James Linsay We the subscribers are jointly and severally held firmly bound to Benjamin Williams, Esq Governor or his successors in office in the sum of five hundred pounds current money. The condition of this obligation is such that whereas the said Morris Roberts hath made application for a license for a marriage to the be celebrated between him and Mary Linsey--of the county aforesaid; now in case it shall not appear hereafter that there is any lawful cause to obstruct said marriage then this obligation to be paid otherwise remain in full force and virtue. William McSwain (seal) James Linsey (seal). ?? and delivered in the presence of ??Eilkins. 4 of February 1804"

"Rutherford County We the subscribers are jointly and severally held and firmly bound to James Turner Esq governor of North Carolina and his successors in office in the sum of five hundred pounds current money to be void on condition that whereas--Josiah Roberts hath made application and obtained license for marriage to be celebrated between the said Josiah Roberts--and Miss Mary Linsey--of the county aforesaid now if it shall not appear hereafter that there is any lawful reasons or cause to obstruct said marriage then this obligation to be void and of none effect otherways remain in full force and virtue in law Sealed and Acknowledged this 1st day of September Anno Domini 1803. Attest Wm. McBrayer. Josiah Roberts (seal) Morris Roberts (seal)."  There is no question that Josiah Roberts was the son of Morris Roberts. Morris by gift deed in 1800 gave land "to son Josiah for love and affection..." I have a copy of this deed. Eric Newsom

Found another relationship between these two families in Surry Co. NC [Durham and Carlton] - they held land next to James Lindsey Sr.  The following deed contains the metes and bounds and is as complete as I could copy.  Brief explanation of the measurements - one chain = 66 feet, one pole = 16.5 feet, N45W means half way between north and west.  There are 90 degrees between north and west, so start at north and go 45  degrees to the west.

DB E-451, dated 11 Aug 1789:  Indenture between John Durham of Spartingburg (Spartanburg) SC and (to) Lindsey Carlton of Surry Co. NC for 10pds. - land in Surry Co. near the round hill on waters of the N Fork of Deep Creek beginning at a stake, then N70W five poles to a stake, north 51 chains to a stake, west 20 chains to the branch, then down sd branch to the mouth to a Spanish Oak, then by a marked line agreed on to a Turkey Oak and 143 poles then continued on near the same as was along the sd. marked line 66 poles to the begining  - containing 100 acres. Signed John Durham. Witnesses Simon Hadley, Jcob Dobbins. Date on the record was 8 May 1789.  Recorded by oath of Dobbins May, 1790.

This is one of the worst surveying jobs found in the records, but it has the same spot locations as one of James Lindsey's deeds.  Thus, these people had land next to each other.  The normal going rate for this type of land was about 60-70 pounds Sterling.  The reason this type of money was used (English) was that each state had their own currency.  The cost of this land was 10 pounds - showing that it was discounted greatly - usually for family members.  There are two dates on this deed.  Aug 1789 and May 1789.  I would think the deed was written in SC in May and entered SC in August and someone hand carried it to Surry Co.  The deed was actually recorded one year later.
Could this possibly have been him???

The identification of Mary Carlton/Carleton as the wife of James William Lindsey if from work done by Bob Davidson. I have no idea what documentation he has or had.
Children of JAMES LINDSEY and MARY CARLETON? are believed to be:

    ii.    CARLTON LINDSEY, b. Bef. 1762; d. 1825, Kentucky; Trigg Co.; m. MARY ?.
May have been a trouble maker! He and his brother Caleb were cited for "trespass" in VA and land seized and sold by the sheriff to cover what they owed, after they had left the state. [NOTE: this is from another researcher. I have not seen the record myself.] Then in Rutherford Co. NC, he and Micajah got into some trouble which resulted in the sheriff seizing and selling land to cover a debt of 14 pounds, some shillings and pence. Unfortunately, when sold the land brought less than 7 pounds. [Note: the land records for this are below . I haven't seen the court records.]

Subject: Re: Carlton Lindsey - Surry Co. NC

"Phil Lindsey was kind enough to send me some pages from a book of the Surry Co. NC Court Minutes 1768-1789 Vol 1-2, published by Southern Historical Press. The book gives a view of what was going on there during that time. Surry Co. covered a large area of NC at the time. Most of the area on the north was in the mountains. Many entries in the records dealt with bounties on wolves and wildcats. I'm sure these animals made large dents in the domesticated farm animal herds. Apparently men from all parts of the county were called as jurors - but Carlton was the only one of his family of age at the time, so his name appeared often. Witnesses to jury trials were also given mileage and per-diem, was can possibly be used to tell how far away from the courthouse they lived. Carlton Lindsey's name was usually spelled "Carlton" but his last name was usually "Lindsay." The court house listed was located at Richmond, but I have not located that place yet. I don't have all pages of this book, so it's not possible to say all of the courts were held there. There also seems a close association with the Holcomb family. The connection to the Holcomb family is found through the Durham family.  George Durham (b.c.1715-20, d.1766 Brunswick VA) m. Winifred Lindsey c.1740-50. His daughter Margaret Durham m. probably Thomas Holcomb.  Carlton's descendants should look carefully at this relationship.  Did some of the Holcombs go to SC?  I am surprised Carlton's name is not found in the Surry Co. tax records.  He was certainly old enough to pay at least a poll tax.  Or is it we have only seen the land tax and not poll tax records.  Following is a record of what was sent by Phil:
2-14-1783 - Juror: Carlton Lindsey. Had to be age 21, so this pushes his birth year back to 1761 or before.
5-15-1783 - Jurors: Carlton Lindsey, George Holcombe, and Phil Holcombe.
5-16-1783 - Jurors: Carlton Lindsey, George Holcombe.
1784 (could not tell exact date - on previous page that was not sent)
Abner Greenwood vs. William Johnson -witness Philemon Holcomb for pltf.
76 miles, 11 days, Carlton Lindsey 72 miles, 10 days.
4-15-1785 - Jurors Carlton Lindsay, Philip Holcomb
5-14-1785 - John Randleman vs. John Sutton, wit. for pltf. Carlton Lindsay 36m-4d
8-9-1785 - Airs Hudspeth vs Daniel Bailey - wits. for pltf. - George Holcomb 96m-14d, Carlton Lindsey 144m-30d.
2-17-1786 - Philemon Holcomb vs. Thomas Burnet - wit. for pltf. - Carlton Lindsay 240m-30d.
5-11-1786 - deed John Bohannon to Airs Hudspeth - oath Carlton Lindsay.
2-14-1787 - deed Henry Speer to Carlton Lindsay - oath sd. Speer.
2-15-1787 - Philemon Holcomb vs Wm. Rutledge and Joseph Bradley - wits. Geo. Holcomb 274m-45d, Carlton Lindsey 274m-48d.
3-1787 - Carlton Lindsay to have leave to build water grist mill on Swisher's Creek to be deemed public mill.
5-1787 - Wm. Shepard, assignee of Becket Nichols and Phil Holcomb - find for pltf. - Wit. for pltf. Carlton Lindsay 100m-20d.
1787 - Philemon Holcomb listed with too much land in Sander's District.
11-13-1787 - deed from Carlton Lindsay to James Lindsay acknowledged.
11-15-1787 - State vs. Carlton Lindsay - not guilty.  State vs. Philemon Holcomb - not guilty.  State vs. Carlton Lindsey - guilty.  The same jury was involved in all three cases.  It appears there may have been more than one charge against Carlton Lindsey and one of them involved Holcomb.
11-17-1787 - Henry Speer vs Carlton Lindsay - deft. came into court and acknowledged if he said disrespectful things of Capt. Speer's character, he does not remember for he had no cause to say such - suit discontinued.
2-15-1788 - Jacob Ballinger vs Phil Holcomb and Carlton Lindsay - no judgement noted.
8-12-1788 - deeds from Jame Lindsay to Th. Wiles (oath John Blalock), James Lindsay and wife to John Bittick (oath John Durham), James Lindsay to John Durham (oath John Bittick), Thomas Holcomb exempt from paying poll tax in future.  
8-16-1788 - claim paid to Jeffery Johnson for keeping guard with 3 men over C. Lindsay.  Someone was worried Carlton was going to commit a violent act or was going to try to escape.  This led to his father posting bond with all of his land and then losing it when Carlton did not show up in court.  This was the last record of this Lindsey family in Surry Co. - they must have fled to SC very soon after.
