Re: ISAAC S. LINGO

In Reply to: Re: ISAAC S. LINGO by Red Anthony of 684

Dear Red Anthony and Linda Brown: I have been to the LINGO
Cemetery, not to be confused with the City of Lingo's
cemetery down town Lingo. The Lingo cemetery is exactly
where Linda said it is and it is fenced and well kept
and many people still decorate the graves. Isaac's stone
is in good shape and there is a lot of information on the
stone, such as his children, etc, wife Isaac's stone
is a square at the bottom and comes to a point at the top
and has much information on it. It is about 5' tall
and very unusual. We all in Missouri descend
from JAMES LINGO AND SARAH SMITH OF LINCOLN COUNTY,
TENNESSEE. I HAVE A LOT OF SMITH INFORMATION AND JAMES
AND SARAH SMITH LINGO HAD ABOUT 13 CHILDREN AND JAMES
WAS MARRIED TWICE. By his first wife he had 2 boys and
1 girl. The Girl Was Mary Lingo m. Judge Joseph Turner and
they helped start the Eldad Cumberland Presbyterian
Church, which is still in use today (the second building)
Mary's older brother was Judge S S. Lingo standing for
Sterling Steven I think - don't quote me, and the town
of Lingo (where the Cemetery is) is named for him and
he was quite prominent and I don't think he has a stone
which is such a shame as he was so well known and had
all of those children. There are two graves in the middle
of the cemetery thJames S. Lingo's obit says he had S.S. and Mary and
another son, but I have no information on that son. His
first wife was 10 years older than James and was in
Delaware.
I believe the Perrin family tree has been done and I
think it is in our local historical Society at Moberly, MO.
I found out so much about the Smith family because Lee
Smith in 1840, ten years after Isaac Smith died contested
the will saying he did not get his fair share, but upon
investigation it was found that he had a lot of his
Father's personal property including a buggy and a horse
and some other things and the court felt that he had had
his fair share BEFORE Isaac died.
If I can be of specific help, please email me at
loll@mcmsys.com. Thanks Laurana Holman Schamma in Misouri
with a LINGO onnection. I am too tired to continue, but if
you have a specific question, I will try and answer it.
