Extracted from the 2_Davids_Spreadsheet, this tabulation represents all the known Westmoreland / Fayette County, Pennsylvania references attributed to David Lindsay / Lindsey from 1772 until 1787 when he  disappears from the county records.

1772 finds David Lindsay as a residence of Tyrone TWP (see Some Pennsylvanians in 1772); apparently married and if the records are correct a father to (Eliza?) Jane Lindsay, born that same year.

Thru the years, David is listed as taxpayer, court litigant, juror, militia Lieutenant, witness, and signer of the McClure Petition (Christmas day, 1772) for the engagement of a preacher.

In 1787 a blacksmith David Lindsay sold "Mud Island" to Zachariah Connell for 156. This tract, in Connellsville TWP (formerly Bullskin TWP) now is the center of Connellsville, Fayette County, Pennsylvania.

Coincidently, my gggGrandfather purchases land in what is now Harrison County, Kentucky November 19th, 1787 from his good friend (and former Tyrone TWP, PA resident & neighbor) Thomas Moore.

In 1799 David Lindsay signature is found on Harrison County marriage bond for William Newell to Isabel Lindsay, David Lindsay's daughter. William Newell is the son of Hugh and Elizabeth (McNay?). Hugh, Margaret, & Robert Newell are found in 1786 to be living in Rostraver TWP, Westmoreland County, PA along with Peter Lanterman (daughter-in-law Sophia Lanterman) and the Applegate's. David Lindsay marries 2nd Nancy McNay in 1796 and ggGrandfather John Lindsay marries Sophia Lanterman in 1811.

Finally John Carol Powers in his Publication "Early Settlers of Sangamon County, Illinois" lists my ggGrandfather John Lindsay as born "at Fort Pitt, now Pittsburgh, in 1773".

Published in 1876 this publication is independent corroboration that David Lindsay was in Pennsylvania prior to moving to Kentucky.
