Well Kimberly ...maybe you know Sam Lingo, maybe you don't, but you seem to be a cousin of Sam's. He and I have communicated by email and I will put him in touch with you.
Please, I hope you both will share whatever you discover on the line with me.
The Josephine Ball marriage is the one I can't fit in ...and when was John Wesley born?Have you heard of Nancy C. SMITH who married E.W. 1877 in Cass Co TX and then 1880 was in Lawrence County AR with E. Wesley LINGO (transcribed as LINGE) ...and their son James b about 1878. Then Dec 29, 1883, E. Wesley and Nancy sold their land in Lawrence Co AR ...and I took a digital photo of that document in the Walnut Ridge AR courthouse a couple years ago.That was the last I heard of Nancy C. SMith LINGO ...and of hers and E.W.'s son James.
OK ..I'm giving Sam Lingo the link to your message posting ...and your email address if I see it posted on this forum.Many thanks for your reply here.
