William D. Lindsley (1840 - 1915) was born in Arkansas. In 1861, he joined Block's Company (Leavenworth Zouaves), Kansas Infantry for a 30-day term of service during the Civil War. He then served as a civilian employee of the Quartermaster's Department. He married and eventually settled in Oklahoma with his wife, Anna. The couple had several children. Lindsley made a living as a farmer. He and his wife attempted to collect a veteran's pension, but were unsuccesful because of the short duration of his service as a soldier.
