1824. Jesse Lindsay was a native of Virginia, but an early settler in
Kentucky. He was county sheriff when Carroll and Gallatin constituted

twice married, his second wife having been a Miss Dosha Scruggs, of Owen
County. His death took place in 1875, in his eighty-sixth year. J. H.

until he was forty-eight years of age. In 1870 he was elected assessor.
In March, 1878, he moved to Carrollton, having been elected sheriff that
year, and served four years; he was then appointed Government storekeeper.
In August, 1845, he married Miss Lizzie Jackman, daughter of Benjamin
Jackman, of Carroll County. Mrs. Lizzie Lindsay died in 1863, and in
1864 Mr. Lindsay married Mrs. Margaret (Hopkins) Sebree, a native of
Gallatin County, and daughter of Harvey Hopkins. To this latter marriage
have been born three children: Harvey, Kulley, and Charlie. Mr. Lindsay
