Biography of John C. Lindsay (1759-1838) - Revolutionary War Soldier
By Ken Lindsay
John C.5 LINDSAY, (Anthony Jr.4, Anthony3, Samuel2, Robert1), son of Anthony and Rachel Ann (DORSEY) LINDSAY was born about 1759 in Baltimore Co., Maryland and died in Hancock Co., Kentucky 10 Sep 1838 and was buried in a cemetery near Dukes in eastern Hancock County. John C. LINDSAY was my Great-Great-Great Grandfather and served several tours of duty during the American Revolution.





John C. LINDSAY married about 1774 at Montgomery Co., Maryland, Susannah DOWDEN, daughter of Nathaniel and Susannah DOWDEN of that county. Her grandparents were John and Mary (GORE) DOWDEN of Queen Ann Parish, Montgomery Co., Maryland.

Revolutionary War Soldier
John C. LINDSAY was a Revolutionary War Soldier. (For proof see his Pension Record #S30545 in National Archives.) On the 21st day of August 1833, the following declaration appeared in the Henry Co., Kentucky Court Records. The document reads as follows:

"John Lindsey a resident of said county aged 74 years who by reason of his bodily infirmity is unable to attend the proper court to make his declaration and who being first duly swon according to law doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit the Act of Congress ??? 7 th 1802.

That he entered the service of the United States under the following named officers and served as herein stated. That is to say, being a resident of Frederick in the State of Maryland, he did about the middle of September, as well as he remembers, in the year 1777 enter the service of the United States as a drafted Militia man and private soldier upon a tour of three months in the Company of Captain Simon Meredith. That he rendezvoused with the said Company at Frederick Town in the said County and was immediately appointed by his Captain as orderly sergeant of the said Company and served as such during the whole of his said tour. That at their said place of Rendezvous they joined their regiment which was Commanded by Colonel Beatty. That the Lt. Colonel's name was Alexander Campbell and the Major, Joseph Wells. That he marched with the said Company & Regiment from his said place of rendezvous into the State of Pennsylvania and there joined the Army of General Washington at what was called 'White Mash Mills.' That he was attached to the Command of General Smallwood. That he continued with the Army during the whole of his tour and at the termination thereof was discharged and returned home."

Biographer's Note: This indicates that John C. Lindsay took part in the Battle of Germantown. He was discharged in the nick of time, as Washington took his men into winter quarters of Valley Forge. The document continues to read:

"He recollects upon this tour to have seen Generals Washington, Smallwood, Gist, & Cols. Hollingsworth & Huson of the Militia & Col. Morgan of the Rifle regiment.
He further states and declares that afterwards, in the fall of 1779, he moved to the State of Pennsylvania and in the Spring of 1780, he changed his residence to the neighborhood of Buffaloe Creek upon a tract of country over which the States of Virginia and Pennsylvania both claimed jurisdiction."

Biographer's Note: This was Yomongahelia Co., Virginia, now known as Virginia's Lost County. The document continues:

"And in the month of April, 1780, he entered the service of the United States as a private volunteer soldier in the Company of Captain Ogle, upon a tour of six months and served as such during the whole of his tour. He states that he rendezvoused with his company at the Fort at Charles Wells on Buffaloe Creek and was there stationed during a portion of his tour and during the residue thereof he was kept engaged in Scouting Parties against the Indians. That being a frontier Country and much infested by them, he states that the County in which he then lived and in which said fort was situated was called Ohio County & said to be in the State of Virginia. He states that there were few men in that section of the Country able to bear arms & their acertions were in Constant requisition to repel the incursion of the savages. He states that during this tour, he was not under the command of any officer of higher grade than Captain. That he served out his tour faithfully and was discharged. And immediately upon his discharge to wit in the month of October 1780 the Indians still being troublesome, he again entered the service of the United States as a private Volunteer Soldier in the Company of Captain Ogle upon a tour of three monts. He states that he then volunteered without leaving the fort at Charles Wells and that he continued in the Service against the Indians in scouting parties and in the forts in the neighborhood as in his first tour in the year 1780 as above set forth during the whole of his said last mentioned tour of three months and faithfully served out the same and was discharged.

He further states and declares that in the Spring of the year 1781, he moved from the said County of Ohio to Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania, which was a frontier County. And soon afterwards to wit: In the month of May 1781, he again entered the service of the United States as a private Volunteer soldier in the Company of Captain Lynch upon a tour of three months and served as such during the whole period of his said Tour against the Indians who were exceedingly troublesome. That he served actively and faithfully against them during the whole period of his said tour and was then discharged. That during this tour, he was under no other officer other than Captain Lynch.

He further states and declares that in the month of March 1782, as well as he remembers, he again entered the Service of the United States in the Company of Captain Lynch as a private Soldier and drafted Militia Man upon a tour of three months. That he rendezvoused with the said Company at Colonel Cooks in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, where he then declares he resided and immediately upon his entrance into the service appointed by his Captain orderly Sergeant for his said Company. and served as such during the whole of his said tour. That he was marched from thence with his Company to Legard Station on Brushy Run in Westmoreland Co., Pa., and was kept stationed during his tour. That he was attached to the Command of Major Wilson and had no Colonel. That Captain Lynch had Command of the Fort at Legard Station and this declarant continued there and constituted a part of the Garrison during the whole of his tour. And at the termination thereof to wit: in the month of June 1782 as well as he remembers he again entered the Service of the United States under command of the same Captain for a tour of three months as a private volunteer soldier and continued in the service stationed a portion of the time at the fort at Legard Station and upon scouting parties against the Indians during the whole of his tour. And at the termination thereof he was discharged.

He states and declares that there are some service which he performed during the revolution that he cannot now recollect with sufficient certainty to detail but he is confident from his present best recollection that he did serve in the manner said at the times above detailed and that he did not serve less than six months as a sergeant and fifteen months as a private soldier during the revolutionary War and for that service he claims a pension.

He states that he has no documentary evidence and that he knows of no person whose testimony he can procure who can testify to his service.

He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.

OF THE UPPER MONONGAHELA VALLEY, Vol. III by Howard L. Leckey. "JohnTolsin Lindsey, John Lindsey, Anthony Lindsey, and Nicholas Lindsey were petitioners endorsing a petition for a new state.
This petition was taken from the Papers of the Continental Congress No.48, and is Folios 251-6. Pages 89-96. The original petition is filed at the Library of Congress.
The new state was to be known as "WESTSYLVANIA" encompassing the land between the Laurel Hills and to the west as far as the Ohio river. The list of names was those of pioneer settlers of what is now Fayette, Washington, and Green Counties of Pennsylvania and perhaps Ohio and Monongalia Counties of Virginia."

Revolutionary War Soldier John C. Lindsay, my Great-Great-Great Grandfather, was a Revolutionary War Soldier. For proof see his Pension Record #S30545 in National Archives.
