Notes


From Barbara L Hodges (copied from William Moore Goodnight of Johnson County, MO 1875-1951): "Henry, Born in Benningham England, moved to the county of Glouchestershire where, as a young man, he united with the Quakers and shortly thereafter emigrated to America.
Ballingers are known to be of French extraction; the name is French and was originally De La Ballinger as used in France. Evidence of tradition prove that in France they were of the religious sect of Huguenots and were driven out of the country during the religious persecution of 1625 to 1700; some no doubt came to America, but the line of our descent went to England via Holland and settled in Benninghamshire. This was the time when William Penn was leader of the great Quaker movement and here the Ballingers became united with them and continued in that faith for 200 years or more, and we find many still adhering to that church.


About the year 1660 a Henry Ballinger was born in Benningham, and moved to Glouchesteshire where we find him united with the Nailsworth Meeting of Quakers, and from which place he emigrated to America in 1678 and united with the Burlington Meeting (as the Quakers termed their churches) at Burlington, New Jersey.
William Penn had previously purchased much of this county and also received a large grant of land in Pennsylvania. It seems quite possible that Henry was well acquainted with William Penn before Penn settled permanently in Philadelphia.


Henry, Joseph's father bought 1200 acres of land in Salem County, New Jersey. In 1710, he sold it to three of his sons, Joseph, Josiah and Henry. Joseph's share was 340 acres for which he paid his father 100 pounds (Salem, NJ Deeds). At the time all three sons were single and they set out into the world to make their fortunes.
Barbara: There's quite a bit more about Henry in England where he joined the Nailsworth Meeting of Quakers in Glouchestershire; his arrival in America in 1678 on the "Kent"; record of his marriage referenced."

Notes


"Forks of Elkhorn Church" by Emma Darnell. Kentucky History Center should have a copy. According to this book, Anthony Lindsay came to Kentucky in 1784 and settled in Scott County. There is a historic marker at Stamping Ground, Kentucky, marking the location of Lindsay's Station."


From: robert jordan, jorbob@msn.com To: LINDSAY-L@rootsweb.com Date: Wed, 11 Jul 2001
"Anthony Lindsay (b.c.1736 P.G. Co. MD, died 1808 Henry Co. KY) m. 1758 Eldersburg, MD, Rachel Dorsey (1737-1805). She was daughter of Nicholas and Sarah (Griffith) Dorsey. There is a line from the Dorseys way back. There is good circumstantial evidence concerning Anthony's ancestors.


My info might be a little out of date (picked it up 25 years ago), so please feel free to double check all of this. Some of the marriages took place in Shelby, Woodford, and Bourbon Cos. KY. There were other Lindsays in the same MD area as Anthony, but I have never really seen good connections. Hope this helps separate some of these Lindsay lines that lived in the same areas of KY. There are several good references (supplied by others) that tell the story of Anthony's Rev. War exploits and the settlement at Lindsay Station."


"Anthony Lindsay filed a claim for pension with the United States govenment and stated he was a soldier of the American Revolution.


Anthony Lindsay (1736-1808) brought his family to Kentucky in 1784 and settled in the vicinity of Hayden's Station. In 1799, he sold to his son, Elisha, the farm which was owned in recent years by Marcus H.Cromwell. Some records say that he came from Maryland, and others, from Virginia, but the marriages of two of his daughters indicate that he may have lived for a time in each place. In 1758, he married Rachel (Nellie) Dorsey, daughter of Nicholas and Sarah Griffith Dorsey.


Anthony Lindsay served with George Washington at the time Washington and Braddock marched against the French and Indians at Fort Duquensein July 1755. Lindsay, in bearing dispatches to Gov. Dinwiddle ofVirginia, stopped at the home of Nicholas Dorsey, a large landowner inMaryland where he met and fell in love with Rachel, Dorsey's daughter.


Anthony Lindsay, son of Anthony Lindsay and Alice Page, was born about 1736 in Prince Georges County, Maryland. Anthony died in 1807 at Lindsay's Station in Scott County, Kentucky, and was buried in the old cemetery located near the old fort he had founded. He married Rachel Ann Dorsey about 1756 in Eldersburg, Carroll County, Maryland. She was born about 1737 in Baltimore County, Maryland, the daughter of Nicholas Dorsey and Sarah Griffith. She died in 1805 in Lindsay's Station, Scott County, Kentucky and is buried beside her husband. The Kentucky Historical Society placed a Bronze Plaque marking the site of Lindsay's Stations reading, "Lindsay's grave is 100 yards north". The site where Lindsay's Station stood is located about three miles north of Stamping Ground, Scott County, Kentucky. Anthony Lindsay was a veteran of the French and Indian War, a patriot of the American Revolutionary War, and a pioneer settler of Kentucky.


EVENTS LEADING TO THE FRENCH & INDIAN WAR


The arrival of Celoron de Bienville, with his lead plates, sent a chill over the scattered mountain settlements. The Ohio Company began to shore up their own claim to the region. They built a stone storehouse at the confluence of Wils Creek and the Potomac River. They hired Thomas Cresap to mark and clear a road from this storehouse,across the mountains, to the Ohio Valley. For a while longer, nothing happened. Then, in 1753, the French came back and began to build forts in the valley. The governor of Virginia sent George Washington to warn them off. Washington was in his teens, a Virgina militia officer, and was surveying Lord Fairfax's lands.


The French snubbed the Virginia ultimatum and pressed on to the Forks of the Ohio. They found a frail Virginia fort there and proceeded to take it, where they heard that Virginia had fielded a military unit.


This small army was under the command of George Washington with orders to drive the French out of the valley. The French sent an expedition out to combat this; however, the Virginians found them first.Washington's little army attacked; thus, starting the French and Indian War.


They defeated the French in this initial battle. Anthony Lindsay, age 18, is said to have been the dispatch bearer with Washington's army.He is reported to have been the messenger dispatched by Washington to Governor Dinwiddie relaying news of this French defeat.


One can speculate that it was during this journey that Anthony Lindsay first stayed in the home of Nicholas Dorsey at Eldersburg, in Baltimore county. Possibly, this was not his first contact with the Dorsey family; but, it certainly wouldn't be the last.


This was a short-lived victory. Within weeks, Washington's forces were corned in a makeshift fort called, Fort Necessity, and were forced to surrender.


By then England was aroused to the danger of French expansion in North America. They planned a campaign to expel the French from the Ohio.


GENERAL BRADDOCK


Two regiments of regulars under Major General Edward Braddock arrived in Virginia in February 1765. A few months later, he planned acampaign to cross the mountains and attach Fort Duquesne, a Frenchfort, erected on the ruins of Fort Necessity. The force, when finally assembled, consisted of 1400 regulars and about 600 other troops. These included independent troops from New York, six companies of rangers - one from Maryland - and thirty seamen from the fleet, to serve as artillery soldiers. On 30 May 1755, they set out.Forty-seven days later, on July 15, word reached Annapolis that the expedition was a disaster.


Througout the rest of 1755 and on into the following years, raid after raid struck isolated and outlying settlements. Cabins were burned, cattle slaughtered, men tomahawked, women and children slain orcarried off. Settlers fled from their homes in droves. The MarylandGazette 4 March 1756 reported, "Our accounts from the westward aretruly alarming. All the slaughters, scalpins, burnings and every other barbarity and mischief that the mongrel French, Indians, and their chieftain, the Devil, can invent are often perpetrated there and approach us nigher and nigher". With Indian war parties threatening, people withdrew from the backcountry altogether. Fort Cumberland was left with a small garrison. The rest of the remaining forces withdrewto a newly erected fort near Hagerstown. This fort was named Fort Frederick; but, should not be confused with the settlement named Frederick. That settlement was several miles back east.


A SECOND TOUR FOR ANTHONY


Forbes had 1700 regulars, mostly Highlanders, plus 2700 Pensylvanians, 1000 Virginians (in two regiments, one commanded by Colonel George Washington), and 300 Marylanders. Anthony Lindsay, once again, served in this British effort.


FRENCH & INDIAN WAR ENDS


10 February 1763, the Treaty of Paris ended the French & Indian War. France ceded, to Great Britain, Canada and all her territory east of the Mississippi except Isle d'Orleans. Spain ceded Florida to Great Britain, who restored Cuba and the Philippines to Spain. In November of 1762, King Louis XV of France had secretly ceded Louisiana west of the Mississippi, plus the Isle d'Orleans to his "dear and beloved cousin", king of Spain.


On 13 August 1767, Anthony and Rachel Ann Dorsey Lindsay bought adjoining property from Rachel's brother, Charles Dorsey. This indicates they prospered at farming.


ANTHONY LINDSAY MOVES FAMILY


Early in the spring of 1773, Anthony and Rachel Lindsay sold their farm and moved westward into the Southern part of Frederick county.They continued to farm in the area that is now Montgomery County.


ELKHORN REGION OF FINCASTLE COUNTY (KENTUCKY) EXPLORED


News of the new fertile ground of Kentucky swept over Frederick county like wildfire. Still filled with adventure, the 39-year-old AnthonyLindsay, along with other Marylanders, in the spring of 1775, joined aparty led by Charles LeCompte. He left his eldest son, John C.Lindsay, then sixteen years old, to look after the farm and family.Anthony and the others trekked their way over ground they had all travelled during the French and Indian War. They rested at Cresap's Old Town, climbed over the Allegheney Mountains, down the MonongahelaValley, and on to Fort Pitt. Here they joined with a party of Pennsylvanians, led by William McConnell.


At Fort Pitt, they built canoes, a flatboat for their horses, gathered supplies of food and gunpowder. They made their way down the Ohio River, camping on the south bank each night. They were all cautious men and well aware the Shawnees watched their progress.


They made camp at the confluence of the Ohio and Kentucky Rivers. This was where the present city of Carrollton in Carroll County,Kentucky, now stands. Each day they fanned out to explore the new territory on both sides fo the Kentucky River. They moved on down that river to the mouth of the Elkhorn River. Again they set up camp and explored both banks of that river, before moving on down to the forks of the Elkhorn.


They moved their camp to the forks and spent weeks exploring the land drained by both branches of that stream. They liked what they saw. William McConnell was a surveyor and staked all their claims. The next few weeks was spent building cabins as improvements. William McConnell and a few others remained. LeCompte led the others back up the Ohio to Cox's Fort by canoe. After a brief stay at this fort, they made their way to Fort Pitt. The party divided, each returning to their respective homes. No doubt, while at the Forks of the Elkhorn, Anthony Lindsay made up his mind to bring the family there as quickly as possible.


ON THE BRINK OF WAR


Upon his return to Frederick county, Anthony Lindsay learned that the colonists were on the brink of war with the mother country. He found that Maryland had already set up a provisional government and blood had already been shed near Boston. The colonists had declared independence. Armies were being raised. Actualy, Maryland was one of the earliest colonies into the field. Part of the quota of troops requested of her by Congress was two rifle companies. These were to be raised in the backcountry.


ANTHONY LINDSAY'S SERVICE IN REVOLUTIONARY WAR


In the later part of 1776, there were numerous Indian threats to the extreme western settlements of Maryland and northern Virginia. On 17 January 1777, Anthony Lindsay was appointed a Second Lieutenant in theLinganon Battalion of Frederick county.


Anthony and Rachel Ann Dorsey Lindsay were still living in Frederick county in 1778 when Anthony took the Oath of Fidelity. All that winter, the Lindsay, Dowden, and Quisenberry families made preparations to move to the Forks of the Elkhorn region. They had heard of George Rogers Clark's capture of the forts at Kaskaskia and Vincennes. It would now be safe to travel.


In the late spring of 1779, after Anthony's oldest child, Kate Lindsay, married her first cousin, John Lindsay, the wagon train rolled west. Charles LeCompte would lead the way. Kate, and possibly Charles Lindsay, were Anthony's only children to remain in Maryland.


They went through Old Town, then crossed the Mason-Dixon Line into Westmoreland county. The area within which they lived is now Fayette County, Pennsylvania.


The next year all the families moved westward into an area that both Virginia and Pennsylvania claimed jurisdiction. This section is located within the present panhandle of West Virginia. The Cox families had two forts in the area. One was above Buffalo Creek and the other, below the same Creek. No sooner than they arrived, the Indians became troublesome on the frontier. The wagon train had to retreat back to the safety of forts in Westmoreland county. They would have to remain here until the Indians eased their attacks. This would be another year.


In 1783, the Lindsay, Dowden, and Quisenberry families reached the Ohio River. They built flatboats to haul their cattle, horses, and wagons loaded with only the necessities of life. The flatboats were lashed together during the journey to withstand the springtime dangers of the swollen Ohio River. The flatboats were nothing more than rafts made of logs. Each had protective sides six feet high and thick enough to withstand rifle balls. Each of the flatboats had a partial roof over their sterns. This provided protection from the elements.


The men took turns as scouts, along the south bank of the river. On horseback, they kept three or four miles ahead of the boats. These scouts kept a sharp eye for Indians. At the end of each day, they would find a safe place to camp on the south bank of the river. In the course of the day, these scouts would kill enough wild game to feed everybody.


Apparently their trip down the Ohio was uneventful. They reached the Forks of the Elkhorn about late spring of 1783. All that summer they farmed and built cabins on the land they expected to claim.


Because of the Indian threats, Heyden's Station became their haven of safety that first winter. The area where they settled was near theForks of the Elkhorn, mostly along that river's northern branch.Anthony Lindsay's farm lay within the present bounds of Scott and Franklin counties; however, at that time, it was considered to be Fayette county, Virginia. The state of Kentucky was yet to be formed.


Three years earlier, in 1780, the county of Kentucky was divided into three counties, these being Fayette, Jefferson, and Lincoln counties. All of them were counties of Virginia. This was the division at thetime Anthony Lindsay brought his family to the Forks of the Elkhorn area. Nelson county was formed in 1785, taken off Jefferson county. In 1785, three more counties were formed: Bourbon was taken off Fayette county, Madison was taken off Lincoln county, and Mercer was taken off Lincoln county. Settlers came down the Ohio to Kentucky in droves.


17 September 1788, Anthony Lindsay signed a petition to further divide Fayette county. Thus, Woodford county was formed from Fayette in May 1789. Anthony Lindsay's farm now lay in Woodford. Mason county was formed the same year, taken from Bourbon county.


GENERAL HARMAR DEFEATED


On October 18, 1790, General Joshia Harmar, in the first of a long series of expeditions to over awe the Ohio Indians, was defeated by them near Fort Wayne. This began five more years of Indian threats to Kentucky and the Northwest. This loss caused great concern to Anthony about the safety of his family. Bryant's Station was too far away. Hewould build his own.


LINDSAY'S FORT


It was here in Woodford county in 1790, that Anthony and Rachel Lindsay built Lindsay's Fort. This fort was a typical two-family station of that day. Located high on a ridge overlooking a broad Buffalo Trace, a twelve-foot high stockade completely enclosed the area between two log block houses. About two hundred feet apart, the houses tood at opposite ends of the stockade, their only doors and windows were in the side of the wall which enclosed the two rows of logs that stood on end, making the stockade.


The two identical blockhouses were two stories high. The top floor overhung the first floors by five feet. This made the fort easy to defend. There were no blind spots for the enemy to scale the stockade wall. There were no windows on the outside walls; however, there were a great many slits used for loopholes.


The first level of each blockhouse, 16' by 25' and 14' high, was devoid of any wooden floor. The bare ground served each one very well.There was a large open fireplace to the east end of each blockhouse.This was used for both heating and cooking. All sorts of pans, kettles, chairs, and muskets hung from its four walls. The walls of the loft, or second floor, were 10 feet longer than the ground floor.It extended five feet over the ground floor on all sides. The floor ofthe loft was covered with rough hewn planks. To reach the loft, you climbed a ladder extended through an opening cut in the floor of the loft. There were many built-in bunks extending from all four walls.


In the middle of the loft was a table and four benches. On the table lay a couple of books and a burning candle, with its flickering flame, made shadows dance off the walls. In additoin the second floor had another loft of its own. This loft covered only half of the overhead space and was used mainly for storage and sleeping.


There were other buildings built along both stockade walls. All these had sloping roofs. Most were used for cattle, horses, and other livestock; however, a few were pressed into service as housing in times of Indian troubles when neighbors took refuge with the Lindsays. This happened frequently the next few years and grew more intense inthe early spring and summer of 1791.


Today this site is designated and marked by the Kentucky Historical Society. The plaque reads as follows:


LINDSAY'S FORT


Elkhorn Region first explored in 1775. William McConnell and Charles LeCompte
led a party that included Anthony Lindsay. In 1790, he built a fort here on an old
Buffalo Trace, main thoroughfare from Georgetown to the Ohio River. Lindsay's
grave 100 yards north.


KENTUCKY BECOMES STATE


1 June 1792, Kentucky became a state. This was soon followed by other county divisions. Scott county was taken off Woodford. This left Lindsay's Station in the new county of Scott. At the same time, Shelby county was taken off Jefferson and adjoined Scott county to the west. All of Anthony's children, except Nicholas Lindsay, lived close by Lindsay's Station. Nicholas had gone across the Ohio River into the Northwest Territory, where he had built a blockhouse and ran a tan yard in the present Dearborn County, Indiana.


In February 1794, the Governor of Canada told a delegation of Indians, gathered at Quebec, that the land in the Northwest Territory belonged to them. He promised, if the Indians would assist them in war, the land would be returned to them when victory was won. This greatly aroused further Indian activity in the Northwest Territory. It even extended raids by the Indians into the state of Kentucky.


On August 20, 1794, General Anthony Wayne, along with a great number of Kentuckians, defeated the Indians in the Battle of Fallen Timbers.This was at the present site of Fort Wayne, Indiana. On August 3,1795, General Anthony Wayne concluded a treaty with the Ohio Indians.This was called the Treaty of Greenville. It ceded large areas of land in the Nothwest Territory to the whites. In 1796, the Public Land Act authorized sale in minimum lots of 640 acres at the price of $2per acre. This could even be bought on credit. May 7, 1800 the Northwest Territory was divided. The western portion became the Indiana Territory. On May 10, 1800, the Public Land Act authorized land sales of 320 acres at $2 per acre, on four year installments.This was sponsored by William Henry Harrison, governor of the IndianaTerritory. On March 1, 1803, Ohio became a state. The next day, France sold the Louisiana Territory to the United States. March 26, 1804, the new Public Land Act lessened the number of acres that could be purchased at $2 an acre to 160. This, too, could be paid for with installments scattered over a four-year period.


RACHEL ANN DORSEY LINDSAY DIES


The exact date is unknown; however, during 1805, Rachel Lindsay died at her home at Lindsay's Station in Scott County, Kentucky. She was 67years old and had endured some of the greatest hardhips known to mankind. She was truly a pioneeer and lies buried, in an unmarked grave, in the old Lindsay's Station cemetery, beside her husband. They had twelve children: Kate, John C, Sally, Nicholas, Charles, Anthony, Rachel, Elizabeth, Vachel, Lydia, Lucy and Elisha


Marriage:



On 5 March 1778, Anthony Lindsay took the Oath of Fidelity and Support before Justice John Lawrence, Frederick County, Maryland
