Forgot to add my Wells line which followed this bunch also Zorobabel, was
in Talbot then Queen Ann.
Humphrey, g-grandson of Zorobabel, who married Abigal Lindsey also shows,
as married in Frederick Co and according to the Spry Genealogy was in
Hampshire Co VA in 1762 or shortly thereafter. He was in Spartanburg Co SC
in (1873 typo) and and died in Richmond Co GA ca. 1782.
I will check out all the Lindseys in the Stark books.

Please add John Gaskins,of Md and Berryville. My wife has a Bartholmew
Gaskins sons in the sw Ohio neighborhood of Edmund Lindsey [SC] and
Hezekiah Lindsey [sw Pa]. Bartholomew Anderson might [?] be a namesake.
O'DELL,pg 220 puts Isaac and Jacob Pennington,John Gaskins,of Md, John
Gilbert Guilder, [Hukill] Samuel Isaacs,John Parker together
I have 4-5 of Dr Peter Craig's works. I've known him 20 years,I
guess,though not had much contact the past 10 years.
My wife also has Daugherty ties-likely with Cecil Co roots,on her
Kirkpatrick-McCalmont -Findley side.
Edmund Lindsey Jr sold to Samuel Mount [Andersson?] in 1765. page 216 O'dell
Edmund Lindsey,Sr said he moved to Va in 1733. [Does that fit with the
Stafford Co,Va resource mentioned in the Lindsey records posted earlier
today.[pg 214 O'Dell]
Osborn and Jasper Ball interest me.
