Notes
a. Note:   After Daniel's 1829 death Lucy continued, with the assistanceof Thomas Noble Lindsey, her son-in-law, & son Samuel P., tooperate the Weisiger Inn until 1841 when she sold the hotel toCapt. Thomas P. Hart (whose granddaughter, Helen Talbot, wouldlater marry her grandson, John Brown Lindsey). The Capitol Hotelwould also be built, some years later, on the very same site.Lucy and Thomas N. Lindsey bought a house together & it isthought that Lucy made her home with her son-in-law anddaughter, Isabell, and her seven Lindsey grandchildren.Isabella died in March of 1852 leaving Thomas with childrenranging from 7 months to 16 yoa. It must have seemed highlylikely that Thomas would remarry, which he later did.Meanwhile, Lucy's son & Isabella's brother, Dr. Joseph Weisiger,lost his 2nd wife in May 1852. Possibly due in part to the winds of war, in any event LucyPrice and this recently widowed son, Dr. Joseph Weisiger, andhis new (3rd) wife) must must have decided the West lookedpromising.as they left Kentucky together for Texas where, alongwith other family members, the Weisigers became ranchers inVictoria County. Lucy passed away in 1857 in Texas. There is some debate amongsther descendants in Kentucky & Tennessee as to whether herremains were actually returned to Frankfort to be buried besideDaniel or remained in Texas. Her stone is in Frankfort and noTexas grave has ever been located for Lucy. Remains werefrequently transfered long distances back then, routinely makingjourneys that seem unlikely to some of us today. I am inclinedto believe that she was, in all probability, buried as shewished to be, in Frankfort. --AGP
