The people you are looking for appear in the electronic Lint disc maintained by the Lint Reasearch Group. The head of the group is a
George Lint, also known as Flounder.

But here is something that can get you started until you talk with George
George (who said he would very much like to talk with you <>

Cornelius "Neal" F. Lint
b. 25 Jan 1855 Crocker twp., Polk co., Iowa
d. 21 Mar 1919 Polk City, Polk co., Iowa
Bur. Union Cemetery, Polk City, Crocker twp., Polk co., Iowa

m 11 Apr 1883 Polk Co., IA

Amanda Grosnickle d/o Jonathan Grosnickle Jona. b.03Apr 1795 d.29 Jun 1881Polk
City,Polk Co., IA.
Amanda b. 12 Apr 1856 IA
d. 11 Dec 1938 Polk City, Polk co., Iowa
Bur. Union Cemetery, Polk City, Crocker twp., Polk co., Iowa

Neal was the s/o Jacob Lint Jacob b. 25 Dec 1832 Holmes Co., OH d 12 May 1910
Booneville, Boone Twp, Dallas Co., IA AND Margaret Ann Rowe b.07 Feb
1836 Williams Co., OH d 09 Nov 1906 Boonesville, Boone Twp, Dallas Co.,
IA. Jacon and Margaret. had 13 children, (named.) Both bur. Boonesville Cemetery,
Boonesville, Dallas Co., IA. George has this to say.

"In an interview with Eldie Lint in DesMoines, Iowa at his home with Kathleen
Moad the following information was writen down about Jacob; Eldie said that Jacob was born in Pennsylvania and was a close friend of and Eli Rowe who was the brother of Margaret Rowe (Jacob's wife). This
friendship caused Jacob to come to Ohio and Indiana before coming to Iowa in 1846.
"In doing this research I've found multiple discrepancies on Jacob Lints age.
Contrary to his family's belief and his tombstone, Jacob I believe was born in 1832! Normally I don't trust census records but
Jacob (and it is the correct one) shows up on 4-5 census and they all say he was born in 1832. Also the age given on the birth certificates of several of his children also
show him being born in 1832! This may cause some anger in the family but I'm interested in the truth not fairy tales."

Margaret was the d/o George S. Rowe and H. Snellenberger. Jacob was the s/o David
Lint and Mary Ann Berkey. You'll have to see George for more info about the Lint family. I entered the entire Berkey family into
a database as a part of what I do for the OMII Genealogy Project.

If you have questions about her, then I would probably know as much as most others and more than most.

Good luck in what you find. I believe that there is NO one who can help you more right
now than George (Flounder). Call or e-mail him and let me know how you make out.
