Men of Mark in Georgia, William F. Northern, Vol. V., Atlanta: A. B. Caldwell, Pub. 1911.

John William Lindsey, Pension Commissioner for the State of Georgia, was born on a farm four miles from Irwinton.  His parents were Isaac and Martha (Moore) Lindsey.  His father, Isaac Lindsey, was a substantial farmer.  The family is of Scotch-Irish origin; the first ancestor in America came from Ireland to America and settled in South Carolina prior to the Revolution.  A great-uncle, John Lindsay, distinguished himself as a soldier in the Patriot ranks at the battles of Kings Mountain and Cowpens.  James Lindsey, grandfather of Col. Lindsey, married Sarah Frost in South Carolina, and in 1814 they moved from Edgefield County, S.C. to Wilkinson County, Georgia where the family has since resided.  Col. Lindsey, as a boy, attended the schools of Irwinton, but his education was interrupted by the breaking out of the Civil War in 1861.  He promptly enlisted in the Confederate Army as a private in Company I, Third Georgia Regiment, A. R. Wright, Colonel.  It was a regiment of young men, and made a splendid fighting record.  col. Lindsey made an excellent record as a soldier, never absent from his command except when wounded.  At the Battle of Spottsylvania, May 14, 1864, he was severely wounded, and even yet he suffers at times from the effects of the old wound.  He was the youngest of three brothers who served in the army.  The oldest brother was killed at Gettysburg; both the others served through the war and both were wounded.

At the close of the war, Col. Lindsey, then a young man of twenty-two entered the law office of Col. Eli Cumming as a clerk, studying law in the intervals of his work, and in November, 1868, was admitted to the bar by Judge Green Foster.......
