LINDSAY, John Summerfield, clergyman, born in Williamsburg, Virginia, 19 March, 1842. He was graduated at William and Mary in 1859, and at the University of Virginia in 1866, and was for several years a minister of the Methodist Episcopal church. He acted as chaplain to the University of Virginia from 1865 till 1867, and in 1868 took orders in the Protestant Episcopal church. From 1871 till 1879 he was rector of St. James's church, Warrenton, Virginia, and in the latter year took charge of St. John's, Georgetown, Virginia, where he still remains (1887). From 1883 till 1885 he was chaplain of the United States house of representatives, and in 1887 he was elected bishop of the diocese of Easton, Maryland, but declined. Dr. Lindsay has published several occasional sermons, among them "A Sketch of Hamilton Parish, Virginia" (Baltimore, 1875), and "A Sketch of St. John's Church, Georgetown" (Washington, 1886). He is also the author of an address on "The True American Citizen" (1887).
