James “Little Jimmy Red” Lindsey

  • Birth 17 Nov 1910 Colbert County, Alabama, USA
  • Death 24 Jan 1977 Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, USA
  • Burial Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee, USA
  • Memorial ID 48425031

Youngest child of:
Robert Paul Lindsey & Mary E. "Mollie" Tubbs.

Brother of:
Culis Washington, Annie Martha, Clarinda "Clandy", Cordelia "Deede", Lube Buster, Evie Rosalea, Lantham Mc"Kin"ley, George Washington, Lee O. & Maudie Pearl Lindsey.

Maudie Pearl was born May 10, 1909 and listed on the 1910 Census as age 11/12 of a year. This Census was finished in April of 1910 which would make this correct. James was not listed because he was not born yet.

James's birth date is wrong on the headstone and in the family records. He was listed as age 20 on the 1930 Shelby County TN Census records living with their father, which makes the Social Security birthdate of Nov. 17, 1910 more accurate. Their mother died when he was so young, just seven, they must have just lost touch with his real birthdate.
