Notes from Lucy Wattle regarding the Lindsey and Deal Family residing in Knox Co. IL.
On April 25 I sent a packet of information to Ron. That included a copy of the estate papers for Francis Deal's estate.. 1863 Hugh Lindsey was made administrator of his father-in-law, Francis Deal.
Knox Co. IL. No resident information on Hugh Lindsey.
On those estate papers, Elizabeth got everything. I think the value of the estate was about $400. They sold a land warrant for $166 andElizabeth got that. I don't know why it went to Elizabeth. It was listed as a claim against the estate. Hugh was in Knox County for the March term, 1866, Knox County Circuit Court, when it appears the estate was closed.
Neither Hugh or Elizabeth are buried with the family in the Knoxville Cemetery, unless they did not have stones. There are stones for the rest of the family including "Little Willie" Lindsey. As I remember, they had a plot that was kind of marked off. It was under a large tree.

The Deal land does not show on this map Possibly it was in the city ofKnoxville. They still owned it when the estate was settled in 1863 HughM. Lindsey was the Administrator of the estate. For some reason onlyElizabeth Lindsey received a share of the estate. It does not say whathappened to the property, only that the family is living there Maybe theothers were to eventually get a share of it. I sent Ron a copy of thesepapers.

Family Notes from Ronald James Lindsey - "His great grandfather was HughM. Lindsey b. est. 1825-1830, Unknown place, resided, Galesburg, IL ??,m. Elizabeth J. Deal, 15 Nov 1855, in Knox Co. IL. I know of two sons,Samuel Newton Lindsey, b. 08 Mar 1860, Galesburg, IL., d. 19 Aug. 1946,Tracyton, Kitsap Co., WA, m. Hattie Jane Fowler, b.c. 1887, dau of JamesFowler and Matilda Stevens. This family moved into Archuleta Co. COL.,San Diego, CA., Medford, OR, and then into Tracyton, WA, in 1919. Ihave most of this family traced out around Tracyton, WA. The secondknown son, L. L. Lindsey, was recorded in Samuel's obituary in 1946."

An Old Resident Gone_ This community was called up[on the past week themourn the death of one of its oldest and long time residents, in theperson of Mrs. Elizabeth J. Deal Lindsey, whose death occurred on lastFriday at the Lindsey homestead southwest of Conway.
Mr. and Mrs. H.M. Lindsey have been long residents of this vicinity,having come to this County in the early days had had much to do in theshaping of the wild prairie land of this part of the people who now liveat ease in splendid form homes in close proximity with each other vastlydifferent from what it was when Mrs. Lindsey landed here in the spring of1866. The Lindsey home was one of hospitality and Mrs. Lindsey alwayshad a cheery word for the visitors who entered her home.
For a few years past Mrs. Lindsey has been in poor health and wasconfined to her home the greater part of the time.
Elizabeth J. Deal was born in Chambersbury, PA of the 16th of March,1830. She resided at that place until she grew to young womanhood, whenshe with her parents moved to Knoxville, ILL. She was there united inmarriage to Hugh M. Lindsey in 1854, to this union were born sevenchildren, three of whom survive their mother. They are Mary F. Morgan,of near Conway, with whom she has made her home, N.S. Lindsey ofTraceytown, WA., Leonard L. Lindsey of Chestnutville, MO.
Mrs. Lindsey moved with her father from Illinois to Iowa in the springof 1855, and lived at the old home place all these years until deathremoved her hence.
Mrs. Lindsey never united with any church but brought up her childrenin the Christian faith and taught them to be true men and women in everysense of the word. She was always ready and willing to help those whowere distress. She lived a good useful life and passes away 10 Sept.1920, aged 90 yrs, 05 months, and 24 day.
She leaves to mourn her departure three children as mentioned, 16grandchildren, 07 great grandchildren, two sisters, Mrs. S.F. Rogers ofGrand Junction, COLO., and Mrs. M.A. Evans of Chambersbury, PA, and ahost of friends.
Funeral services were held at the family home on Tuesday afternoon andshe was laid to rest in the family lot in the Lexington Cem. - The TimesRepublican Bedford Taylor Co. Iowa, Thursday, 16 Sept. 1920

Family Notes from Lucy Wattles - Name for Francis Deal is also spelledas Diehl and Diel. In the 1850 census for Chambersburg, PA, this familyis listed under the name "Francis Diehl." After they moved to Illinois,it was always spelled Deal. The 1850 Census listing, dated September 15,1850, Chambersburg, Franklin County, Pennsylvania, is:
