George Lind arrived in Shenandoah County, Virginia in 1774 (from New Jersey, according to a statement he made when he was preparing to move to Ohio) and is listed in a 1785 census of the county with a family of four (himself and wife included). George owned land near present-day Lebanon Church, a few miles northwest of Strasburg in the northern end of the county. In the circuit court records of the 1790s and early 1800s George is mentioned frequently because he served as the county coroner.

Andrew Lind, son of George Lind, on Feb. 12, 1800, was appointed a Lt. in the Shenandoah Co. Militia and was apparently active in the militia some years after this. He married Rachael Bly, daughter of Jacob Bly, in Shenandoah County, Virginia, 17 Sept. 1804 (date of bond). Andrew probably lived on his father's land on Mulberry Run in what is now the present day Lebanon Church area of northern Shenandoah County. At the estate sale of John Newell, deceased, who lived on Mulberry Run, held, 1 Nov. 1804, newly married Andrew Lind purchased a bundle of flax, a set of cups and saucers, an earthenware dish, a gun and shot pouch, a colander, one bed and a sow. (Shenandoah County Will Book, H, p. 471).
About 1812, his father George Lind and most of his family moved to Warren Co., Ohio. Andrew appears in Shenandoah County personal property lists through 1815 and by 1820 is listed in the 1820 census of Warren County, Ohio (Hamilton Township).
By 1830 he was living in Miami Township, Hamilton County, Ohio and appears in various Hamilton County records and became a Township clerk for Miami Township in 1836 until 1838.
By 1839 he is listed as "deceased" in the estate records of his father, George Lind, who died in Warren County, Ohio in 1825.
In the 1840 census of Hamilton County, Ohio, Rachel Lind is listed as head of a family. She was deceased by 1846 when the estate of Andrew Lind of Hamilton County was probated. Unfortunately these records no longer exist- only the name and date on an index.

married Andrew Lind Sept. 17, 1804
in Shenandoah County, Virginia

Rachel Bly, the second child of Jacob and Catherine, was born in the Cedar Creek Valley in 1782, and married Andrew Lind in 1804. The Blys were on Cedar Creek on the western side of Little North Mountain and Linds were on Mulberry Run, a tributary of Cedar Creek, a few miles away on the east side of the mountain. In 1812 Andrew's father, George, and other members of the family moved to Warren County, Ohio and not long afterward Andrew and Rachel followed. They lived a few years in Warren County but by 1830 Andrew was in Miami Township in Hamilton County, Ohio. Hamilton is the next county south of Warren and lies in the extreme southwest corner of the state. Miami Township is the western most township in the county bordering Dearborn County, Indiana. In some ways Miami Township is more closely connected to Dearborn County because the Great Miami River, separates it from the rest of Hamilton County. Thus, some records of the Lind family can be found in Dearborn County, Indiana.
Andrew Lind is listed as a Miami Township clerk from 1836 to 1838. He apparently died in 1838 because he is referred to as "deceased" in 1839 in estate papers of his father.[1]Rachel is listed in the 1840 census of Hamilton County and apparently died in 1846.[2]

Dr. Charles Thomas Lind
1811 - 1873

Family tradition has passed down the story that Dr. Charles Lind had been himself ill and had mixed his own Rx. After taking his own mixture he realized that he had used the wrong ingredients and only had time to proclaim that "I have just killed myself." Then he died.
Told by Lois Elaine Lind Persons
also told by David Bly
Myrtle F. Harbin Lind wrote a letter (1969) to her daughter Lois Elaine Lind that Myrtle found-
"verification of several things we thought, Dr. Charles Thomas Lind (1811-1873) did have a home in Pleasantville, Ind. This man, John L. Smith (1819-1867) made all the coffins for the community. It has one listed to C.T. Lind for $8.50 in 1867. That was the little boy that lived only a little while (5 days). Grandpa was born in Feb. 22, 1868 and his mother died in May 1870. Dr. C.T. Lind bought the Sandborn place after he married the second time. He died in 1873."
Charles Thomas Lind, born in Virginia on Dec. 15, 1811, grew to manhood in Ohio and married Nancy Agnes McBride, a native of Ireland on Nov. 20, 1842 in Ohio. He and his wife moved to Ballard Co., Ky where they lived for several years but about 1850 they moved to Knox Co., Indiana and settled on a small farm near Sandborn, not far from the Green Co., line. Charles Thomas Lind was a physician and during the Civil War served as an examining physician for the Union Army. He was also one of the few doctors in southwestern Indiana and became quite well-known but overworked. One story relates that he was so overworked when he himself became ill he accidentally took the wrong medicine and died as a result.
Charles and Nancy Lind were the parents of nine children and after the death of Nancy on May 20, 1870, he married Sarah Curran, but died shortly afterwards, on Sept 3, 1873.
Dr. C.T. Lind and his family were members of the Pleasantville Methodist Church at Pleasantville, Indiana and he is buried in the cemetery there.

When EDWARD BRUCE Lind was born on February 22, 1868, in Sandborn, Indiana, his father, Dr. CHARLES THOMAS, was 56 and his mother, NANCY, was 40. In the 1880 US Federal Census, Edward was 12 years old and living with his older brother, Adrian James Lind and Adrian's wife "Lizzie" and baby daughter. Edward and Adrian's mother had died in 1870 and their father had died in 1873 when Edward was just 5 years old. He had three sons, one daughter, and one other child that was being delivered when  MARY MARGARET "MEG" Jackson Lind was giving birth. EDWARD BRUCE died on July 21, 1943, in his hometown, at the age of 75, and was buried in Greene County, Indiana.
Myrtle Harbin Lind wrote a note in her files that -                      
Edward Bruce Lind was telling his youngest grandaughter, Lois Elaine Lind when she was about 6 yrs. old (about 1937) that she was part Indian.  In fact he said, her Great-Great Grandmother was a quarter Indian.  She looked at him a little while and then she said, "Well, Grandpa, do you think I'd be a nickel's worth?"

Her 50th Anniversary Celebration

Over the years, I have been given papers and tid-bits of information about family-
from both sides of the family- even the in-laws.
Both sides of my family has been in America from early on  

and what a wonderful paper trail they have left. 
Fortunately, both Grandmothers took a lot of photos.  Such fun to explore the old photos and finding those who came before me!
Organization is vital!! 
In order to keep up with the family history that had been collected by Grandmom, I started with a folder for Mom's side
and a folder for Dad's side.

A couple of times a year - I now dig through my desk to sort my collection of historical information that I have found and downloaded!! 
Grandmom would love the computer!!
But the excitement you get when you go to a courthouse and find pages upon pages of documents with family information! 

Myrtle with her first car that her Dad gave her instead of land.

I thank Grandmom for inspiring me with her work, and time with letter writing,  visiting courthouses, typing up family history, and for passing this information as well as interest to my Mom,
who has passed the papers and interest on to me. What started by cleaning out a drawer has turned into my passion.
