From The Peabody Story by Wells (published by the Essex Institute, Salem, 1972)

Elezer Lindsey, Jr., was born in 1714 and was prominent in the French and Indian War 
and in the Revolution. He served as a lieutenant in the company of Captain William 
Flint of Reading in Colonel Ichabod Plaiseted's Regiment. He mustered into that 
regiment in 1756, and served in the Expedition against Crown Point.
In the Revolution he was a captain at the Battle of Lexington with a company from 
Lynn. He also served as a captain in Colonel Gerrish's Regiment. Both he and his 
son-in-law, Lieutenant Daniel Galeucia, enlisted from Lynn. Captain Lindsey was 
unable to remain in active service on account of ill health, and Lietenant Galeucia 
took over command of the Lynn company.
Captain Lindsey died in 1782; he and his family are buried in a small point of land 
jutting from the back of Brown's Pond. A Revolutionary War marker is on the site of 
his grave today. 
awt McBee has him as son of Ralph Lindsey and Mary Breed and has him married to 
Lydia Tarrington. Inconsistent with everything else. Is there a second Hannah 
Lindsey?? 
awt MacDermod has him as I do.
