Reverend Lindsey (Dean?) Spurlock was born in "Old Richmond" (then)Cabell County, Virginia to John and Mary (Dean) Spurlock.

He moved his family (around 1850) to the frontier of Knox County Illinois. He married Rhoda Booton (dau of Asa Robert Simpson and Fanny (Spurlock) Booton. They had 7 children: John William, Mary Francis (Rogers), Sarah, Rosella (Perdue), George Blake, Malissa (Johnson) and Harriet (Macy).

Lindsey farmed and was a man of all trades on the new frontier. His wife, Rhoda, was an avid horsewoman so they raised and traded horses.

Lindsey was a self made man and became a preacher (possibly of the early Adventist church). He preached locally and probably on a circuit much like his Virginia uncles and cousins.

After Rhoda's death, Lindsey went to stay with his daughters. One was in Kansas, one in Illinois and another in Iowa. He was listed in the 1900 census, but records have not been located to assure us of his death place and burial. The family had notes that he died around 1908 just following the death of his daughter, Mary Francis Rogers.

The location of his grave is yet to be determined.

Lindsey was a tall, quiet, religious man of stern convictions. His children and grandchildren loved him.
