General Notes: On the Census for 1880 Bear Creek, Franklin Co, Alabama Fathers birth place is listed as TN. Moms listed as TN.
Henry Duke Lindley got his middle name from the Duke Families:
am direct descendent of William Duke, son of James Duke and Rachael Lindley. My GM is a Duke, daughter of Harrison Duke and Mahalie Elizabeth Prattof Itawamba Co MS. I have extensive records on this family. My William married Harriett Pearce in 1834. Family records state that James and Rachael were married in Franklin Co, Al in 1808. William Duke was born 20 Dec 1811 in Franklin Co. and died in Tishomingo Co MS 29 March 1868. His gf William Duke who married Jane McLaughlin is buried in the Duke-Flats Cemetery. There was speculation for years which was published in the Itawamba Co newspapers about his tombstone. The Dukes, Lindeys, Dukes and Metcalfs were together in Franklin Co Tenn and later the Dukes, Lindleys, Pearces and Metcalfs were together in Franklin Co and Marion Co Al. The Dukes, Pearces and Bankards were also together in Union Co SC. So the families lived together in many different counties.
Re: JAMES DUKE & RACHEL LINDLEY/LYNDLEY Emma Bobby Duke 4/06/03
Do you have ANY info on John the son of James Duke & Rachel Lindley. We believe he is our gg grandfather, John Edwin Duke, MD b. 23 May 1813 (census say b. VA) d. 30 Nov 1855 MS. married 5 Aug 1850 Itawamba Co MS Mary Elizabeth Smith, dau of Stephen Wood Smith & Nancy Caroline Weems.
Know that EDB's book states John Duke married a Susan Burke. Maybe this was his first wife. John would have been
37 yrs old when he married Mary Elizabeth, so he probably had been married previously.
Any info you might have on John Duke the son of James & Rachel is greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Bobby & Emma (Shrum) Butler Duke

Notes for JACOB L. LINDLEY:
From Pam Richards, descedant:
They started as Quakers in PA, one of a long line of Jacob Lindley's (Henry's great great grandfather) argued with Benjamin Franklin about whiskey in Boston during the time of trying to write the declaration of independence (I have the 1976 publication of readers digest with the proof!). They moved to NC after war, then went through Tennessee into Alabama, where Henry Duke stayed for a long time after his father left for Miss.

Sixth Generation (3rd Great Grandparents)



32. Thomas Lindley-[422] , son of James Henry Lindley-[424] and Eleanor Parke-[425], was born on 25 Feb 1706 in Bally Brommell Co, Carlow Ireland died on 14 Sep 1781 in Alamanc Co, NC, at age 75, and was buried on 15 Sep 1781 in Spring Cemetary, Alamanc Co, NC.

General Notes: Thomas Lindley, son of James Lindley and Eleanor Parke, was born in Ireland in 1706 and married Ruth Hadley, daughter of Simon Hadley at the New Garden Pennsylvania meeting of the Society of Friends 21 October 1731.
In the early records of Hillsboro, Orange County, North Carolina is found this agreement: "Hugh Laughlin, planter, on the one part and Thomas Lindley, on the other, have agreed to become partners in joint company to erect and build a water grist mill on Cane Creek, to the south side of Haw River. The water to be taken out of that land owned by Hugh Laughlin and the mill to be built on that part owned by Thomas Lindley, 3 and ¾ acres, Sep. Court 1755." This mill was still grinding grain by electric power rather than water in 1995.
The Revolutionary battle of Lindley’s Mill was fought on his property. As recorded in the Centennial History of Alamance County (1849-1949) by Whitaker:
On the same morning a band of six hundred Loyalist soldiers entered the sleeping village of Hillsboro at daylight. Thomas Burke of Orange County had recently been elected Governor by a Whig Assembly, and he was the first man to be taken prisoner by the British. Several other military and civil officials were aroused from their beds and also placed under arrest. Colonel David Fanning (no relation to Colonel Edmund Fanning who was involved with the regulators) and Hector McNeill then led the men on a wild raid of plundering, taking everything of value in the town.
Colonel Alexander Mebane of Hawfields watched this action from concealment. It was impossible for him to reach his horse, and so he set out on foot for his home to warn the people. Like the famous Paul Revere, Colonel Mebane spread the word, "The British are coming!"
Hawfields was Whig territory, and General John a Butler, who lived in this section, quickly raised three hundred of his Patriot militia to greet the British. Next morning the Tories crossed Cane Creek and headed through a hollow which would lead them across Hawfields to Tory country. On the brow of the hill, above the hollow, General Butler and his men awaited.
As rifle fire broke out ahead of them, the rear-guard of the Loyalists, who were escorting the Governor, halted. Colonel McNeill commanded the front ranks to retreat; the Whigs held a better position, and advance would mean certain death. One of his men, a scotchman named McDougal, accused him of cowardice, however, and McNeill reversed the order and advanced. He was instantly shot down. Seeing McNeill fall, some of the men called out that he was dead. McDougal cried out that the colonel was only wounded and urged the men forward.
Meanwhile the other Loyalist commander, Colonel Fanning, crossed the creek some distance below the battle scene and attacked the Patriots from the read of the hill. This attack took the Patriots by surprise, and General Butler ordered a retreat. Major Robert Mebane, the second in command, immediately countermanded the order, and facing a portion of his men to the rear, he attacked Fanning with such force that the latter was forced to withdraw at once. As the ammunition grew shorter, Mebane passed along the line, carrying power in his hat.
Finally the battle came to a draw. The Tories, convinced that they could not get through the Whig lines, headed southeast for Wilmington, leaving their dead on the battlefield. Near the end of the battle a Tory marksman shot Major John Nalls of the Patriots, and mistaking three Whigs on horseback some distance away, the Tory rode toward them shouting that he had killed Major Nalls. A Patriot bullet suddenly ended his boast.
Another of the Patriot officers, Colonel Lutteral, was wounded by the Tories, but he managed to stay in his saddle until his horse reached a farm house a half-mile from the battle scene. As he lay dying in a upstairs room of this home, the brave officer dipped his finger in his own blood and wrote his name across the wall. For many years this grim mark remained there.
The battle of Lindley’s Mill closed the war in North Carolina, and a month later at Yorktown Lord Cornwallis surrendered the tattered remains of a once-proud British Army.
Thomas Lindley b. February 25, 1706 d. Sept 14, 1781 was born in Ballinclash, Ireland married Ruth Hadley, b. Dec 6, 1712 d. Dec 4, 1785. Both are buried at the Spring Meeting cemetery in Alamance county, NC. Thomas and Ruth's first 8 children were born in London Grove, PA.

You are in for a treat when you visit the Quaker & Lindley
area of Alamance (formerly Orange Co.) and Chatham Counties,NC. First, go to www.rootsweb.com/~ncccmm//tour.htm and print out "Quaker & Lindley Country Tour Itinerary" by Les Lindley. This is a map of the area which points out the main points of interest with directions. This is the Cane Creek MM web site.
The best way to get there is going East on I-40/I-85 you will come to Burlington, then about 4 miles further at Graham, take NC 87 south about 15 miles to a stop light at Eli Whitney, turn right on Greensboro-Chapel Hill Rd going west (this is Rd. 1005. About 3 miles on the left is Spring Friends Church and across the road is the cemetery where Thomas Lindley & Ruth Hadley are buried. Thomas is the first Lindley to settle in this area 1753 and in 1756 he and Hugh Laughlin started Lindley's Mill.
About 2 miles further west on Rd 1005 you come to a blinking light which is where it crosses Lindley Mill Rd.
Turn left (south) on Lindley Mill Rd., one mile on right is Lindley's Mill which is now operated by Joe Lindley, who is a 7-Gr Grandson of Thomas Lindley.
Battle of Lindley's Mill was fought a few hundred yards across the road from Lindley's Mill and was on the land of Thomas Lindley.
There are many other interesting sites shown on the itenerary so be sure to allow plenty of time.
Have fun!

Re: Battle of Lindley's Mill 1781
Posted by: Eleanor Rayl (ID *****2866)
I visited the battle site in June of this year and want to add a couple of things:
1. The battle site is not marked from the road and is easy to miss. You'll have to look for a rutted (unpaved) drive that goes along the creek. It's a big drop as you go into the battle site -- not a great idea for small cars or wet weather!
The markers are further into the site past the open meadow. New markers were erected by a local Boy Scout troop in June of 2002. They are large granite markers and very nice. The earlier DAR marble ones are damaged and on the ridge above.
Don't expect any markers throughout the site that lay out the battle or mark specific areas. Read about it before you go.
2. The trace/road that goes past the new markers was the road that went to Spring Meeting. It's no longer used. Follow the tourist maps or the online map for the area to drive to Spring Meeting. The current meeting house is across the road from the cemetery. The early meeting house was in a part of what is now the cemetery and there are now graves where it once stood.
3. Remember that the land is privately owned. John & Judy Braxton, who live just up the road (look for the cannon at their drive) purchased it last year from another Lindley descendant. Judy and John are both Thomas Lindley /Braxton descendants and live on part of the original Lindley land. John is a real Revolutionary War buff and knows many details about the battle...talking with him really gave me a better understanding of the carnage that happened there. Over 100 men (some say much more than that) died that hot September day. The Quakers tended to wounded as best they could and buried the dead, some in a mass grave probably in the meadow area. John and Judy are very accommodating of "Lindley descendants" wanting to see the battle site. I'd contact them before you drive to the site to see if they are available to visit with you.
