His Life
 

“Cowboys Inlaws and Outlaws” by Ken Lindsay Page 32: Rachel Lindsay7 married Daniel (Wiggins) Applegate. My records show that Daniel was son of Richard Morford Applegate (b. 1733, New Jersey) and Kate Wiggins. Daniel Applegate is found on the Bedford County, PA 1773 tax list in Rostraver TWP. Benjamin Applegate was in Capt. Thomas Moore’s Rev. War militia company. Thomas Moore and my David were closely associated in Harrison County, KY.

 

Daniel Applegate’s sister Aletta or Alleta or Althea (1759-1839) married Peter Lanterman (1749-1821). Peter Lanterman was the father of Sophia Lanterman, the second wife of my ggGrandfather John Lindsay (ca 1773-1842)! If I calculate it right, Rachel Lindsay Applegate is Sophia Lanterman Lindsay’s aunt. Thus related to Kenneth Lindsay!

Rachel Lindsay's sister Sallie married Benjamin Cole . . . Sallie and Benjamin Cole's daughter Zerelda Cole married (1st) Rev. Robert S. James . . . And their Son Jesse Woodson James is the famous “Jesse James”, outlaw! (Brother of Franklin)

Another document (See here) compiles an additional source of early day settlers. David Lindsay is not mentioned as an "inmate" nor a "single Freeman". I conclude therefore, David was a married man as my research indicates!
