His godmothers: Mrs. Lee, Milly Williams,Elizabeth Robinson, Mary S. Whiting, Mary Camp, Ann S. Dabney, and Ann Baytops.


Married, first (June 6, 1820), Mary Adelaide Tyler, daughter of Chancellor Samuel Tyler, of Williamsburg; second (June 26, 1826), Sophia Hill, at Mantua House, on the Mattapony River, in King and Queen Co., Va.


Volume III Chapter V Fifth Generation. Cobb Family.


Thomas Smith Gregory Dabney was born at Bellevue, his father's seat, on the Pamunky River, in King and Queen County, Va., on the 4th day of January, 1798. His father died when he was only eight years of age, and when nine years old he was placed under the care of his uncle, Dr. John Augustus Smith, then residing in New York, together with his younger brother, Augustine, and the two boys were placed by their uncle at a boarding school in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Thomas did not remain there long, but was taken into the house of his uncle in New York, and sent to a day school. Being too fond of play, his uncle, to punish him, placed him at a printer's to learn that occupation, and he there printed a Bible before he came to the conclusion that studying was pleasanter than printing, and begged to be allowed to return to his studies. While living with his uncle, he learned enough surgery to be of lasting benefit to him afterwards.


When the War of 1812 commenced, and an attack was threatened by the British at Old Point Comfort, his mother's overseer was drafted, and as his going would have been a very serious loss to her, Thomas, who was then at home, and only fourteen years of age, was allowed to go in his place, at which he was much delighted. His mother gave him a lame horse to ride, saying that a lame horse was good enough to advance on, but would not do for a retreat; but he had no chance to show his powers, for at the end of three weeks it was evident that the danger was passed and he returned home. He and his brother, Augustine, were then sent to William and Mary College, their uncle, Dr. J. A. Smith, being at that time the President, but Thomas remained there but a short time, being called to take charge of "Elmington," the family seat. His mother had married Col. William H. Macon, and moved to his home at Mount Prospect, in Kent County, Va.


Thomas, at the age of twenty-two, June 6, 1820, married Mary Adelaide Tyler, daughter of Chancellor Samuel Tyler, of Williamsburg, Va. There was but one Chancellor of Virginia at that time, and the position implied eminence as a lawyer, and integrity as a man, and both of these he possessed in an eminent degree. Mrs. Dabney lived only three years. She died leaving two children.


Three years after the death of his first wife, he married a second time, Sophia Hill, a daughter of Charles Hill, of King and Queen County, on the 22d day of June, 1826. Here in his beautiful home, "Elmington," on the banks of the North River, Gloucester County, he passed nine years, keeping open house and dispensing hospitality to all around.


In 1835 he moved to Mississippi. He purchased in Hinds County in that State 4,000 acres of land, to which he removed with his family and other relatives and friends, all of whom settled near him in Mississippi. Here he became a successful cotton planter on a large scale, and created a model plantation and a model house which he named "Burleigh," and here he passed very many years, varying it with a summer every year at Pass Christian, where he bought a house for the purpose. Here in Mississippi most of his remaining children were born.


In 1853 he lost his oldest son, Charles, of yellow fever (contracted at Pass Christian), a highly gifted and promising young man of twenty-two years, who had just graduated at the law school at Harvard University. This was a great blow to him, but a greater one to his beloved wife, who never recovered from it. She died in 1861, just as the Civil War commenced and the State seceded.


Mr. Dabney was an old line Whig; but when secession became inevitable he cast his lot with his adopted State and went with it. Three of his sons, the youngest only fourteen years old, shouldered their muskets, joined the Confederate army, and served through the war; and all lived to come back again after it was finished. At the fall of Vicksburg the Northern army overran Mr. Dabney's plantation, pillaging and destroying, and the family had to leave it, going first to Mobile, and afterwards to Macon, Georgia, where they remained until the war was over.


In the autumn of 1864 they moved back to "Burleigh," having been refugees from it for a year and a half. Mr. Dabney set himself to work to repair his shattered fortunes, but reverses overtook him again, and in 1882, he was obliged to leave his beloved "Burleigh" forever, and move to Baltimore, where he spent the remaining days of his life.


He died very suddenly, and without any warning, March 1, 1885, universally mourned, not only by his children and grandchildren, who idolized him, but by every one who knew him.


The following obituary from New Orleans Daily Item of March 5, 1885, was taken from "Sketch of the Dabneys of Virginia":


"The death is announced, at his residence in Baltimore, of Colonel Thomas Smith G. Dabney, long one of the most distinguished citizens and cotton planters of Mississippi. Colonel Dabney had reached the venerable age of eighty-seven, and his death was peaceful, as becomes that of a man who leaves behind him only the most honorable memories of a life worthily and usefully spent.


A Virginian by birth-he was born in Gloucester County, in that State-he was the descendant, both through his paternal and maternal line, from ancestors who were prominent figures in the ranks of the cultured and the affluent society of Colonial Virginia. From them he inherited those virtues, some of them Spartan in their simplicity, which emphasized his character; for inflexible as he was in will and purpose, all who knew him-and his circle of acquaintances was wide indeed-recognized in him a touching faith in his fellow man, which beautified and gilded, as it were, those virile traits which marked him as a man in ten thousand. It is rare indeed that there are united in one man those delicately blended characteristics of gentleness, and an iron will, which were so specially the features of Colonel Dabney's nature; and if he was at times deceived in his trust, it did not lessen his faith in the honesty and goodness of man.



Colonel Dabney removed many years ago from Virginia to Mississippi, and settled in Hinds County, where, having purchased land, he commenced the cultivation of cotton on an extensive scale. He formed one of a small colony of Virginia settlers, who about the same time also removed to that county and established themselves there as cotton planters. This colony brought with them, to the comparatively new country of that part of Mississippi; the elegance and hospitality of the Old Dominion, in whose highest schools of dignity and social worth they had been reared.


At "Burleigh"-as Col. Dabney named his plantation, about nine miles from Raymond, after Queen Elizabeth's astute minister-the old time courtesy of Virginia, the unaffected ease and liberal spirit of welcome reigned supreme. Its hospitable doors were always opened to the friends of its large-hearted owner, and in the society of those friends and of his neighbors, of a devoted and amiable wife, and of a large family of children-most of whom survive to revere their father's memory-this exemplary Virginian of the old school-a school which now, alas! numbers but few surviving adepts-passed his days for nearly two generations in the lap of prosperity.


Colonel Dabney possessed many friends and acquaintances in this city, especially before the war. During the summer season it was his wont to seek the shores of the Mississippi Sound with his family; and to Pass Christian, where he owned a handsome residence, he transferred for a time, annually, that genial hospitality which he had brought to "Burleigh" from the home of his fathers in Virginia.


A man of culture and liberal education, of liberal impulses and warmheartedness, which grew cold only at any suggestion that might have affected his innate pride and his dignity, he was one whom men loved and respected, whose word was his bond, and who, dying without reproach in the face of the world, has left behind him a name to which his children and his descendants may look back with pride, and upon which all good men may pattern."

Anthony LINDSAY "the Immigrant"

1705 - BET 1777 AND 1790

Notes


"For over a hundred years, there have been many disputes concerning the
originating founder of the Lindsay family in America. Most of these stories originated with the Lindsay Family Association of America. During its twenty years of existence, several reports were issued.This Lindsay Family Assocation was abandoned before many satisfactory conclusions were documented. Over the years, the association did some valuable work. In the later part of the last century, there were several conflicting, yet similar stories of the origin of this branch of the Lindsays. Margaret Isabelle Lindsay, author of "The Lindsaysof America", wrote the following three accounts about this particular branch of the Lindsay tree. In her book, she wrote, "Having been furnished with two or three records of this family, in justice to those who kindly sent each to me, I insert them all." The following accounts of these different versions are in Margaret Isabelle Lindsay's own words:


The First Version


"The first was that the early ancestor of the family, a wealthy Scotch sea captain, who was lost at sea, had several sons who settled in America long before the Revolution; one in Maryland, twelve miles from Baltimore; some in Virginia, and some in South Carolina. The one who settled in Maryland being the parent tree of this branch and whose name was Anthony and who married a daughter of one Lloyd Dorsey of Maryland, he first moved to Pennsylvania, and then to Kentucky, with part of his family, about the year of 1784."


In regards to this first account, which appears in "The Lindsays of America" page 257, there seems to be some basis for fact. For instance, several years ago, I spent two weeks in Baltimore searching for my Lindsay origins. I found that an Edmond Lindsay's estate was appraised by James Smallwood and Ralph Shaw, September 24, 1677. In the appraisal, there was no mention of Edmond Lindsay being a sea captain; however, it did say he was lost at sea. Regardless, nobody by the name of Lindsay is listed as a Maryland sea captain in "Captains and Mariners of Early Maryland" by Raphael Semmes, published at Baltimore in 1937. This leads me to have some doubt as the validity of the first account given in "The Lindsays of America". Besides, Anthony Lindsay was born 59 years after Edmond Lindsay was lost at sea.


The Second Version


"Three brothers Lindsay landed in Charleston, South Carolina, from Scotland, and that one of the three went to Virginia, whose son emigrated to Kentucky at an early day, and was the founder of thisfamily, his name also being Anthony."


This account could be true, if we change one word, that single word would be "Maryland" in the place of "Virginia".


The Third Version


"Three brothers came over from Scotland long before the Revolution, one, Anthony Lindsay, settling near Baltimore, the other two going into Virginia; that said Anthony Lindsay was in America long enough before 1775 for his eldest son, John C., to be born and attain sufficient age to serve in the American army. At the close of the Revolution, the family removed from Maryland to Scott county, Kentucky, having bought a farm with the Continental money received for the one on Maryland. He took with him a wife, five sone and three daughters."


The third account appears to be true, with one exception. That single exception appears in the first sentence. I don't think that the Anthony, referred to, was born in Scotland. Although, his name happens to be Anthony too. The Anthony in the third account would be his son. It is the son, whose eldest son, John C. Lindsay, who had attained sufficient age to have served in the Revolutionary War. This John happens to have been my great-great-great grandfather, who died in Hancock Co., Kentucky.


The Fourth Version


The fourth account in "The Lindsays of America" is the most complete and probably the most reliable as it was given to Margaret Isabella Lindsay by Eudora (Liindsay) South. Eudora was well-educated and well-traveled. Anthony Lindsay of Lindsay's Station was her greatgrandfather. Margaret Isabella Lindsay's account is as follows:


"The record states that Anthony Lindsay and wife, nee Dorsey, emigrated from Maryland to Heyden's Station on the Kentucky river, just above where Frankfort now stands, in 1784. They had twelve children, viz.:" Margaret goes on to list the names of the children and a little bit about each. The names of the children, I found to be correct. The chronological order of birth is incorrect. Perhaps they weren't intended to be in order as no dates were given.


The Clue in Mrs. South's Account to "The Lindsays of America"


Mrs. South stated that Anthony Lindsay's first child, Kate Lindsay, married her first cousin, John Lindsay. She further wrote that they lived in Baltimore county.


If it is true she did marry her first cousin, then we know that Anthony Lindsay had at least one brother. Since she said they lived in Baltimore county, I looked at the 1790 census. There is a John Lindsay living on a plot of ground called "Judah's Delight" located in"Gunpowder Manor". Research revealed that this John Lindsay was married to Elizabeth Baldwin, daughter of Silas Baldwin. Both John and Elizabeth Lindsay are buried in the Old Baptist Cemetery, on Baldwin Mill Road, in Hartford county. Their tombstones say that John Lindsay died June 17, 1814, aged 55 years and Elizabeth Lindsay, born 1764, wife of John Lindsay, died May 23, 1838. Obviously, this isn'tthe John Lindsay who is a nephew of Anthony Lindsay. Therefore, we must look at places other than Baltimore county. There is only one other John Lindsay listed in the Maryland 1790 census. That John Lindsay is in Prince Georges County. In my opinion, this county is the most likely place to look, since there was an Anthony Lindsay living there in 1738 who was at the proper age to be the parent of the Kentucky Anthony Lindsay.


The 1790 Federal Census of Prince Georges County


Following are all the Lindsays who are listed as heads of families in Prince Georges in 1790:


Charles Linsey, p. 95 (1 male over 16 & 3 females)
Charles Linsey, p. 95 (1 male over 16 & 1 female)
Charles Linsey, p. 95 (1 male over 16 & 3 females)
John Linsey, p. 95 (1 male over 16, 1 male under 16, 3 females & 2 slaves)
Samuel Linsey, p. 95 (1 male over 16, 1 male under 16, 2 females & 1 slave)


As you can see, there is no Anthony listed; however, the Samuel Linsey is Samuel Lindsay, the first son of Anthony and Alice Page Lindsay. Samuel was born in England or in Prince Georges Co, MD, about 1728.


The Oaths of Allegiance & Fidelity


The "Oaths of Allegiance and Fidelity" to the State of Maryland and the cause of freedom was required of all free males 18 years of age or older. This became law following the action taken by General Assembly 5 February 1777. Records exist that show two Anthony Lindsays taking this oath. One was in Frederick County. This one, of course, is Anthony Lindsay Jr., since his son, Anthony Lindsay III, who was born 14 February 1767, would have been too young to have taken the oath. The other Anthony Lindsay was in Baltimore County. This one, in my opinion, is the husband of Alice Page and was the parent of the one in Frederick County. If so, we know he was still living at the time and would have been about 72 years old. His death must have occurred sometime after 1777 and before 1790. They had at least three children: Samuel Lindsay, b. about 1728 d. 16 April 1800, John Tolson Lindsay, b. about 1730; Anthony Lindsay b. about 1736 d. 1807


Marriage:
"Still is thy name in high account,


and still thy verse has charms,
Sir David Lindsay of the Mount,
Lord Lion, King at arms!"


This ancestor of the Lindsay family, of whom Scott sings, was the Herald of James V, and was for more than two centuries accounted the most popular poet in Scotland, so it is not surprising that America's most representative poet should be of the same clan. One writer says that Sir David's poetry did as much to bring about the Reformation as did Knox's sermons.


The clan was founded in Scotland by Walter de Lindissi, in the time of Alexander I (1107-1124). The family seat, Edzell Castle, which because of its prodigal hospitality was called "The Kitchen of Angut", was built in 1604; and members of the clan still hold their annual meetings there.


There is an old saying, "a Lindsay light and gay", and this holds true in spite of the curse pronounced upon them by Cardinal Beaton: "Every Lindsay shall be poorer than his father."


The Lindsay's were in Maryland as early as 1644, having come with Lord Baltimore's colonists, and it is said that a royal deed signed by Charles II, which was given to the first Lindsay, is still inexistence.


Nicholas Lindsay was a sea captain who was lost at sea. He had several sons who settled in America in the Baltimore area and in South Carolina (near Charleston) and in Virginia.


In 1784, Anthony Lindsay (1736-1808) came with his family to Kentucky and settled at Haydon's Station, on the Kentucky River, about a mile above where Frankfort now stands. In 1797 he had a farm of fifty acres which he sold in 1799 to his son, Elisha.


Anthony Lindsay's wife was Rachel Dorsey, of the distinguished Maryland family. The Dorseys descend from Norman de Arcci (d'Arcy, Darcy, Dorsey), who came to England with William the Conqueror. His descendants founded and endowed religious houses and filled high places in the military and civil departments, being greatly esteemed by their sovereigns. Sir John Darcy was lord-justice and viceroy in Ireland, and was granted estates in Ireland by Edward III. The first in America was Edward Dorsey, who came to Maryland in 1650. Historians differ as to whether he came from England or from Ireland."

between 1904 and 1913, numbered consecutively.Author: Margaret Isabella Lindsay Atkinson, Historian
Text: "There were many branches scattered throughout all the colonies; however, this Anthony Lindsay's stem comes from the Maryland branch."Information disclosed in the Annual Report of 1906 reveals this aboutthe earliest Lindsay's in the Maryland Colony: "The Lindsays and Lindseys were among the early settlers of this state, coming over with the first Lord Baltimre colonists. They were of St. Mary's County, Charles County, Calvert County, Baltimore County, Somerset County, Worcester County, Frederick County, Hartford County, and possibly elsewhere. James Lindsay, 1644, is a joint heir to personality in the will of Governot Leonard Calvert, the early Maryland Governor and brother to Lord Baltimore. James Lindsay left a son, James, and two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary. While we possess some information of these Lindsays, there are yet several branches to be heard from. Many descendants are living in other states, south and west, particularlyKentucky."

Title: Lindsays of the World Author: Ken Lindsay
Text: Anthony Lindsay Sr., in my opinion, was born 1705 and christened in
Stepney, London, England. It has not been proven; however, many of us believe he was the son of Samuel Lindsay and Elizabeth ______. Nobody seems to know when he died; however, there is reason to believe he may have died in Baltimore Co. MD. If so, he is probably buried in that county. See 1730-1 Maryland Colonial Wills, Prince Georges Co, folio20, page 158. It appears that Francis Tolson paid Anthony's way fromEngland to the Maryland Colony. Anthony married Tolson's stepdaughter, Alice Page, about 1725. She was born about 1700, probably in London,England and was the daughter of ____ Page and Ann Marsh. We do not know when or where she died.
