Joseph Lindsay is not on these lists but Capt. Harrod's Company is listed -
I guess the
Harrod Fort was named after him. Jesse Hodges is shown in Capt. Holder's
Company and he was also shown at Harrod's Fort in the other list. we know
from that list Joseph Lindsay was at Harrod's Fort and he married Widow of
"Col. Wm. POAGE and wife (who md 2nd Joseph LINDSAY". Joseph was prob b
cir 1760 prob. VA and may have been a professional soldier. If he doesn't
show up in later census of KY he may have moved on to IN, IL or south to
AL, MS Territory or was KIA - hard to say.

Lewis Collins, in his wonderful history of Kentucky, has aided us greatly
in piecing together the names and locations of our earliest settlers in
Kentucky. Kentucky did not reach statehood until 1792, but even while we
were still a part of Virginia, the hearty pioneers were blazing out trails
into this wonderful commonwealth.

According to Collins, the following is a "large portion of those who were
enrolled as pioneer soldiers of Kentucky." Some name were spelled incorrectly.
