Person: Thomas J. Lindsey (1945-1925), Philadelphia Journalist

This week, WeRelate looks at the Person Page of Thomas J. Lindsey, born 18 June 1845 in Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland, son of Michael Lindsey (1920-1907) and Margaret Ritchie (abt. 1920-1904). Thomas was an influential Philadelphia newspaper man known locally as the "Dean of Journalism." He was a longtime editor and briefly part-owner of the Evening Bulletin. A politically-active Republican, he served for three years as private secretary to the Collector of the Port and counted numerous prominent Philadelphians amongst his friends and acquaintances. Thomas died Mar. 11, 1925 in Lansdowne. He is buried with his wife at Lawnview Cemetary in Rockledge, Pennsylvania. This Person Page, is a good example of the type of Page that you can add to WeRelate for your ancestors. (learn more...)
