LINDSEY, Daniel Weisiger, soldier, born in Frankfort, Kentucky, 21 October, 1835. His father, Thomas N. Lindsey, served as commonwealth's attorney in 1845-'8, was several times in the legislature, and a member of the State constitutional convention of 1849. The son was graduated at Kentucky military institute, and at Louisville law school, beginning the practice of his profession in 1858. At the opening of the civil war he entered the National service, and raised and organized the 22d Kentucky volunteers, of which he was elected colonel. He led it in the campaign of General James A. Garfield in eastern Kentucky, and in the retreat with General George W. Morgan from Cumberland Gap. He was soon afterward appointed to the command of a brigade in General Morgan's division, which he led in the Vicksburg campaign, and in other engagements. In 1863 he was appointed adjutant-general of Kentucky by Governor Thomas E. Bramlette, and served till the close of the term, in 1867. Since then General Lindsey has practised law in Frankfort.
