Linsleys Prairie

Troops bivouacked on Lindsley's Prairie during the war north of present day Siloam Springs (then Hico) Had they not moved the Battle of Prairie Grove would likely have been fought there instead of where it was. Associated with the Cherokee Mounted Rifles was a Dr. Lindsley. Does anyone know anything about the origin of the name Lindsley's Prairie? Who was Dr. Lindsley?
