Remembering Our Ancestors: Samuel Lindsey

Today we remember Samuel Lindsey (1827 – 1914).

The grandfather of our paternal grandmother on the Denney side, Samuel Lindsey, was born in 1827 in Fairfield County, Ohio.  He married Mary Elizabeth Skinner on May 17, 1855, in Meigs County, Ohio, and they had eight children in 18 years.  He died this day, November 2, in 1914, just in time to miss almost all of WWI, at the age of 87.

Since we do not have pictures of him, we chose old pictures of the area where he lived for illustration purposes.
