Hi Red, Thanks for the info.Do you know the date of that letter??Yes, in 1850, Samuel, Isaac S., and James Lingo were all living side by side in Macon County, MO along with Willis Blew and wife Margaret Lingo, and Joseph Pippin with wife Mary Lingo.For Isaac S. Lingo, I show date of birth as 1824 in Tennessee and I have the same marriage date in Randolph County.I also have two daughters, Frances born 1845, and Susan J. born 1848.The son Lawson does not show on 1850, must have been born later. I was not aware of Sarah Blue/Blew so I am not sure whose daughter she might be.
I am coping Samuel Lingo's will here.This is why I list Isaac S. as his son.Date on Samuel's headstone readsb.1805 -d. 1877.
