Lindsey, James

27 Oct 1895 (The Daily Constitution - Atlanta} Killed His Uncle. News has just reached here of the killing of James Lindsey, a well-to-do farmer, living four or five miles north of Dallas, by his nephew, George Martin. From the best information at hand it seems that young Martin was drinking and was quarreling with his brother, and had out his pistol. Lindsey, who is an uncle of the boys, told George to put up his pistol and hush, whereupon Martin turned on him and asked what he had to do with it. Without waiting for a reply Martin shot Lindsey, the ball entering the bowels. Mr. Lindsey died sometime during the night at his home. After the shooting martin left, and up to this writing has not been arrested. Sheriff Furr and posse are scouring the country for him. Mr. Lindsey leaves a wife and several children.
