  • Notes 
    • 1870 Census, Magoffin County, Kentucky, Lindsey Trusty's name is spelled "Linzy." His age is listed as 5/12 (five months old). He appears to be living in the home of his grandmother Margaret McDaniel Trusty. The census notes that he was born in December 1869.

      1880 Census, Magoffin County, Kentucky, Lindsey's name is spelled Linsey, and he is living in the home of Samuel Trusty. Other Trusty relatives, including his grandmother Margaret, live nearby. Samuel Trusty is listed as a widower. Lindsey's relationship to Samuel is given as his "son." It is unclear who Lindsey Trusty's mother was. Samuel's sister Sarah A. Trusty was living in the home, possibly to help care for the small children after their mother's death, but many family records list her as the mother of the children, probably out of some lack of attention to details when reading the census record.
    • 1870 Census: Linzy Trusty. He is living in the home of his grandmother Margaret McDaniel Trusty. His father is a farm laborer documented as a member of another household (see his page for more). I do not know who his mother is or whether or not his siblings have the same mother.

      1880 Census: Linsey Trusty. He is living in the home of his father along with siblings Ned, Floyd, and Emily. His aunt Sallie (Sarah) is living with the family, possibly to help Samuel Trusty care for his young children.

      1900 Census: I am unable to find Lindsey Trusty and his family.

      1910 Census: Lineia Trustie. The enumerator this year was especially prone to odd misspellings.

      1920 Census: I am unable to find Lindsey Trusty and his family.

      1930 Census: Angeline Wages Trusty is listed as a widow, so Lindsey Trusty presumably died before 1930, but I do not have a date of death.
