About James Lindsay

He was a pioneer of Wasatch Co. and prominent in civic affairs. He served on the school board and had been justice of the peace. Veteran of the Indian Blackhawk War.

"Gatehead is the first place I can remember, because of an incident that happened in my younger life. Brother William and I were playing when he found a large black bug. He wanted to kill it, I interfered, and as he raised the hatchet to strike I received the blow on my nose. I had a scar all my life to remind me to stay out of other people's business." ~James Lindsay's Autobiography (

"I was nine years old, and was going to the Neep Hill school, which was two or three miles away. The schoolmaster was a very large man, but he was a cripple. This handicap didn't seem to bother him when it came to being stern with his students. When you were unprepared he could dress you down with his cane to sort of brighten your memory. The next time you were prepared. Now I am not an advocate of harsh treatment, but at the same time I am sure there is something wrong today when children go to school until grown and in many cases are not much farther along in eduction than many of us at the ages of ten and twelve." ~James Lindsay's Autobiography, pg 1
