Lingo Family Genealogy Forum
Lingo Researcher: I Descend from James Stuart Lingo, whose Mother was Comfort Lingo and who had two wives and while I do not know who the first wife was was as she was older than James and they had a boy and a girl and the Boy was the infamous Judge Lee Lingo of Lingo, Missouri:but his second wife was Sarah Smith Lingo from Lincoln County, Tennessee and I do not know if her middle initial was 'P' or not, and who had 12 Children and Martha Lingo was his 12th child and they removed from Lincon County, Tennessee to Randolph County, Mo. about ca. 1830 and my ancestor and she married William Carol Holman And they were at Eldad Cumberland Church on Highway F out of Clifton Hill, Missouri (close to Huntsville, Missouri)(because James Lingo and Sarah started that church and while the building is a different building, the church still has services each week and she is buried at Eldad but James S. Lingo is no place to be found. So I know
that James S. Lingo went to live with his oldest Son by his first marriage The Infamous Judge Lee Lingo and the Judge had lived all his life in Lingo, Missouri on Highway 36 in Macon County and I assumed he still lived there, but recently it came to my attention that he removed to Excello, Missouri on Highway 63 half way between Moberly and Macon, Mo. and I only recently found this our (in 2008) AND the cemetery is on the highway but I never even thought about researching who was buried there. Up at Lingo, Missouri there is the City Cemetery of which no Lingos are buried there and then there is a really nice cemetety out on the curve after you leave Lingo and it is fenced and well cared for but neither Lee or my James S. Lingo are buried there and there in Lingo so I have been searching for my James every since. In the Lingo cemetery out on the curve there are two piles of real bricks with some home made concrete crumbled and you can tell that somoene took their finger or something like that and carved the name of the person who is buried there but the concrete has long been broken up in pieces and impossible to read. So now I find that The Judge removed and is buried at Excello and since his Father James went to live with him, it is possible that my James is buried there too I have not had time to investigate since I found this out. So does any Lingo Researcher know where James Stuart Lingo is buried. Please email me at home at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any information for me. Thanks, LAURANA HOLMAN SCHAMMA .
