I'm terribly sorry for not replying earlier! I presumed that a reply to my
posting would be forwarded to me! Thus my belated response.
Nancy (Agnes) McNay is David's second wife. I have the last of twelve
children born to David and unknown first wife ca 1790 (or perhaps a little
later). Jean Ferguson is the spouse of one of David's sons, David (Jr.),
married Oct. 25, 1809.I believe (tradition) the family was started in the
Ft. Pitt, PA area in 1792. My ggGrandfather John reportedly was b. 1773 in
the same area.
Another son William was reportedly born 1786 at Ruddles Mill. So with this
information I believe David was in KY by this time. I have proof that he
signed the Petition (#56) in 1788 to build the tobacco warehouse at Ruddles
On the old Ammerman Farm is a "Lindsay Cemetery" reportedly on land
purchased from Thomas Moore, but a check of PERSI records indicates only
Moore's buried there! Probably not true, but the only evidence I have.
Below is a copy.
I'll promptly get in contact with Jim Sellers.
Further, the Ft. Pitt Area of PA and specifically Westmoreland CO is the
object of my search as well. I have a David Lindsay/Lindsey who showed up
there in 1772 and later paid taxes in Bullskin and Tyrone TWP's of Fayette
CO after it was carved out of Westmoreland CO. This David disappears from PA
and appropriately shows up in KY within a year. I think I have the right man
but I just can't prove it!
A Jeremiah Nesbit signed the tobacco petition just above David's signature.
And there was a Jeremiah Nesbit who was in a Lt. David Lindsey's Company
under Capt. Torrance....another Fayette CO name!
Of course, Thomas Moore married Mary Harrison, sister of your famous Col.
Benjamin Harrison. My David purchased parcels of his Mill Creek land,
perhaps twice. This is where the Lindsay Cemetery is located. I suspect my
David married an unknown sister of Thomas Moore. So far, all the known
sisters are accounted for and no luck!
As you can see, I really need the name of David's first wife. She just has
to be buried around there somewhere! (I know, I'm begging!)
As an aside, my David was your first County Coroner...the record I have
lists him as Daniel Lindsey. (He signed the petition LindsAy)
Three of David's children married Makemson's...anther early local name. My
John married Sophia Lanterman in Fleming CO. Most of these people moved on
to Springfield IL.with my John.

This old geologist wished he could find an ole optometrist that could make

I have read several accounts of the Ruddles Station massacre and have not seen the names of Peter and Barbara Hagee Leonard listed or their four children,
Valentine, Michael, and 2 two sisters, all captured by the Indians. Do you know why they are not listed? Where did Barbara die?
