My great-great grandfather was Ransom Lindley (married to Mary Ann Elizabeth Bigham). They lived in Bond County, IL. His father was Jacob Lindley (I don't have the name of his wife). Going one more generation back, his father was Elijah (married to Honor Holbrook). I am looking for the names, places and dates of the childre n born to these marriages. Census records only list the number of people living in the households. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Charla Hyam

I was just reading your post. their is a place that would list Jacobs wife if you know the approximate time frame.
however, I did note that Elijah and Honor married in 1821. and Ransom and Mary in 1854. Are you sure Jacob fits between these two? I found this while searching for my Lindleys. I hope you have more luck then I at this time. Mine are elusive. Good Luck,

Elijah, Ransom and Jacob.

I recently found that Ransom is a year older then the only jacob listed in the Illinois marriage index. Then in the 1870 census it lists Ransom age 41 in Montgomery county and Jacob age 40 in Montgomery county. I believe Ransom may be Elijah and Honors son also. Ransom would have been born around 1829. Elijah was suppose to have died in 1846. I am looking for an Elijah I believe to be my William and John's father but your Elijah is definetly not since William was born in 1861. I wish you much luck I know somewhere one of our relatives must be connected. Good luck

Recently received an posting on from Jim Chandler giving the list of children of Elijah and Honor Lindley as follows:

1: Elijah( m Clarissa Gum)
2: Jahu or Jayhew( later changed to John by a county clerk on Elijah's will above)
3:Mary Jane(m John C Wait?)
4: Polly Ann
5:Jacob b. nov 1 1831
6:Elisha b:Jan 4 1834 (m Elzada Fil Apr 27, 1854)

He lists Polly Ann as being born May 27 1820. I am not sure if that is correct and Honor and Elijah didnt marry til 1821 but who knows. He got this from Elijahs will.
Polly married John Kirkland March 11, 1839.

He does say he is still researching this and other Lindley lines. He believes Ransom's parents were Elisha who married Betsey Gear Feb 23, 1821.

I hope this helps you alittle. You can keep in touch with me at

Much luck , Marcie

Charla-I lost your e-mail address...just had a letter from my cousin in Salina, KS.; gave name of Jacob Ransom Lindley, buried Wade cemetery, had wife and children as you do. You might try the Wade cemetery, but she says the dates were not readable.
