Lee - just starting on the family tree. My uncle did some research. OurJohn Ridley Tingen was born in Pershing Co./Roxboro N.C., his son was Jacob Lee Tingen (m. Nettie Redman. Their daughter was Byrdie Eugene Tingen (m. Thomas Guy Saint Sing). She was my grandmother. He has some papers on John Ridley Tingen from the Civil War that I haven't looked at yet. Any info would help.
