DEAR JUNE EPPERLY. IT IS MY INFORMATION THAT BOTH JAMES STUART LINGO AND HIS SON SAMUEL SANDERS LINGO WERE BOTH MARRIED TO WOMEN NAMED SARAH SMITH BUT THEY WERE TWO SEPARATE SARAH SMITHS. SORRY IF I CONFUSED YOU.
ALSO SAMUEL S LINGO HAD A FATHER NAMED JAMES STUART LINGO AND HE HAD A SON NAMED JAMES LINGO.
I HAVE THE HAND TYPED LINGO BOOK, BUT I DID NOT DO THE WORK, I INHERITED THE WORK.
THERE ARE TWO LINGO CEMETERIES AROUND LINGO, MISSOURI. ONE IS IN THE CITY LIMITS AND I COULD NOT FIND ANY LINGO MEMBER THERE AND ONE OUT ON THE HIGHWAY WHICH IS LOVELY AND FENCED AND MANY PEOPLE STILL DECORATE GRAVES IN THAT CEMETERY AND THIS IS WHERE THE DIFFERENT SHAPED STONE FOR ISAAC SMITH LINGO IS LOCATED; AND IT IS GRAY LIKE MARBLE, AND IT HAS ALL OF ISAAC'S CHILDREN ETCHED ON THE STONE, WHICH IS LARGE AT THE BOTTOM AND GOES TO A POINT AT THE TOP, BUT SINCE I DO NOT DESCEND FROM ISAAC,(BUT I DO DESCEND FROM HIS GRANDFATHER JAMES STUART LINGO THRU HIS 13TH CHILD, MARTHA E. LINGO M. WILLIAM CAROL HOLMAN, MY GREAT GRAND PARENTS) AND MY MAIDEN NAME WAS HOLMAN, I DIDN'T COPY ANYTHING OFF OF ISAAC'S STONE AND I REALLY DON'T THINK ISAAC IS BURIED THERE BUT SOMEONE PUT THE STONE UP AND IT IS VERY NICE AND TELLS OF HIS CHILDREN.
I HAD A NEWSPAPER ARTICLE TELLING OF OLD JAMES STUART LINGO AND HIS WIFE 10 YEARS OLDER THAN JAMES WAS AND 2 SONS AND ONE DAUGHTER BEFORE HE CAME TO MISSOURI BUT THE DAUGHTER WAS NAMED MARY AND SHE M. JUDGE JOSEPH TURNER AND THEY CAME HERE AND BUILT ELDAD CUMBERLAND PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH NEAR HUNTSILLE, MO, AND THE REBUILT CHURCH IS STILL STANDING AND IS IN USE TODAY AND HAS NEVER BEEN LOCKED ALL THESE YEARS; AND A DESCENDANT OF ISAAC HARLAN WHO ALSO M. A SMITH, WROTE MEMORIES OF HIS DAYS AS A YOUTH AT ELDAD AND HE SAID HEAVEN CAME DOWN AND GLORY FILLED THEIR SOLES;AND THE ONE SON WAS JUDGE SAMUEL SANDERS LINGO OF LINGO, MO. AND NO ONE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OTHER SON. THEN JAMES LINGO M. SARAH SMITH D/O OF
ISAAC SMITH AND MARY HOOVER OF LINCOLN COUNTY, TENNESSEE AND WHEN MARTHA THE LAST CHILD, WAS A MONTH OLD THEY BROUGHT HER IN A COVERED WAGON TO RANDOLPH COUNTY, MISSOURI. SO JAMES S. HAD 3 CHILDREN BY HIS FIRST UNKNOWN WIFE AND 10 BY SARAH SMITH. MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER MARTHA E. LINGO WAS THE 13TH CHILD AND SHE M. WILLIAM CAROL HOLMAN AND THAT IS WHERE THE TWO LINES TIE TOGETHER AND THEY ARE BURIED AT ELDAD AND I DECORATE THE GRAVES EACH MEMORIAL DAY. MARTHA OUTLIVED WM. CAROL HOLMAN AND I AHVE HER WILL.
SOMEONE HAS SUGGESTED THAT OLD SAMUEL SANDERS LINGO MIGHT BE BURIED AT COLLEGE MOUND AND I DON'T LIVE TOO FAR FROM THERE BUT I HAVE A BROKEN LEG AT THE MOMENT SO WON'T BE OVER THERE UNTIL LATER IN THE SPRING TO LOOK FOR THE GRAVE.
OLD JAMES S. LINGO D. IN MACON COUNTY, MO AT SAMUEL S. LINGO'S HOUSE AND THERE ARE TWO GRAVES IN THE LINGO CEMETERY OUT ON THE HIGHWAY THAT JUST HAVE BRICKS AND BROKEN CONCRETE LAID ON THE GRAVES AND THEY ARE IN THE CENTER OF THE GRAVE YARD AND I JUST WONDERED IF ONE OF THOSE WAS THE FATHER JAMES S. LINGO, BUT DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIND OUT. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
SO COME SPRING I WILL GO TO COLLEGE MOUND AND SEE IF I CAN FIND SAMUEL SANDERS' GRAVE. MOTHER WAS NOT IMPRESSED BY TOO MUCH, BUT SHE WAS IMPRESSED BY THE EPPERLY FAMILY AND HOW MANY GENERATIONS OF EPPERLY'S DO YOU HAVE, JUNE?
DON'T LOSE TOUCH AS WE ARE DISTANT COUSINS AND I LIVE IN MOBERLY, MO. IN THE COUNTRY.
