Curiously, the odds are pretty good that there will be people of the same name in the same place at the same time. Think of all the little girls named Ashley, Brittany or Jessica born in the 1980s. Names go in and out of style and certain given names are popular in specific geographic regions and uncommon in others. For example, Benjamin Franklin was big in Pennsylvania and up and down the East Coast in colonial times while Jefferson Davis was a much bigger hit in the South in the 1860s. Some given names like Elizabeth, Mary, William and John are so common, there will always be duplicates. In addition to the scenario that could leave three related males with the same name in forty years, (Sr., Jr., III,) some names run in families, with every cousin clump including a Lavinia, Amanda, Daniel, or Thomas. What feels like an unusual name combination in a specific era and place may turn out to be two different men with roughly the same name.
In 1910 Rodgie Lindsey lived with his parents Charles and Annie Lindsey in Caroline Co., Virginia. He has not been easy to find, for instance, I have yet to identify him in the 1900 census. There were two contemporaneous black men born in Virginia ca. 1897 who lived in different parts of New Jersey when each of them registered for the draft.
The first card for Roger (Roga) Lindsey, 881 Chelton Ave., Camden N.J. born 29 May 1896 in King George Co., Virginia seems plausible as an older brother John Lindsey lived in Camden Co., New Jersey in 1930 and 1940.
The second card for Rogers Lindsey, 193 Clay St., Hackensack, Bergen Co., New Jersey born 8 April 1897 in Bowling Green, Caroline Co., Virginia has better matching birth information, but the name of the nearest relative, Maria Lindsey, gives pause, plus no one yet in the family was known to be in Hackensack.
