My grandmother, Bertha Ann Lingo, was born in Ripley County, MO Aug 11, 1887 to Alonzo Lingo and Hannah Jane (Smith) Lingo. She had an uncle, Tom Smith, with whom she visited in the late 40's, early 50's. I was just a child and was told this later on. I still have a picture of great-grandmother Hannah. Not much information was given out concerning the Lingo's, whether by choice or lack, I don't know. Anyone who has information about this family please pass it on to me. I'm not a formal genealogist, but I am curious about my ancestors.
