I am interested in finding out something about the Lingos (sometimes spelled Longo) in Maryland. My ancestor John Perdue in Worcester County, Maryland area married about 1700 to a woman whose first name was Mary. A number of researchers say that Mary was Mary Lingo. The Perdues in Maryland had a number of interactions with Lingos, including Smith Lingo. Smith had siblings William, John, Priscela, Nancy, and Sarah and they were children of Robertson Lingo and wife Ann. Robertson died in 1772 in Maryland. There is a will in Maryland dated December 4, 1727 and proved August 28, 1728 (Liber 19, Folio 477) for William Lingo. He names children: Daniel (married Mary Unknown), Jacob, Richard, John, Ownby, Nathaniel, Ann (married a Blacksom), and Rebeckah (married a Taylor). William refers in his will to "grandson Robertson." There is also a will for John Longue (wife Ann) dated November 6, 1712 (Liber 14, Folio 624). He names children Samuel, John, William, Ann, and David.
Any information out there on the Maryland Lingos? The Smigh Lingo name would imply a connection to the Delaware Lingos.
