I am related to John S. Lindley who was born about 1838. I found him listed in the 1850 census in St. Francis Co., AR with a Lucy Lindley, 56 place of birth NC (mother?), Sarah Lindley 30 born NC, Carol Head 25 born TN, John Lindley 15 b.TN, Mary F. Lindley 6 B. TN and James W. Head 11/12 B AR. His second wife apprears to to the sister of Muskoge (sp?) Barnes, daughter of John Barnes b. VA 1794,according to the same 1850 census. I, however, am unable to get back further than this. I did find a Lucy Lindley in the index for TN as a head of household in 1840 census, but ?? I haven't researched further. I am related as follows:
John Lindley, William Walter Lindley, Jim Lindley, Bonnie Lindley Stokes, JoAnne Stokes Hoy.
I found some infor on Lindley family by way of Quaker Church records compiled by Leonardo Andrea, but I don't know how or if we are tied into these records.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
