Judge Samual Sanders Lingo

Samuel Sanders Lingo
Died: Judge S.S.Lingo [Samuel Sanders Lingo], at his house near College Mound, on Monday, 25th of June 1877, of cancer in the stomach.
The deceased was born in Lincoln Co. Tennessee, March 1805, moved to Randolph Co. Mo. in 1829 thence to the west side of the Chariton River in Macon Co. in 1844, where he lived until a few years ago, when he moved to College Mound.
At the age of 18 he became a member of the C.P. Church and for many years was a member of the A.F. & A.M. Society. Whilst living west of the Chariton, he served 13 or 14 years as a member of the County Court.
He was married first to Miss Sarah Smith in Tennessee, and last to Miss Nancy Perrin, in Missouri.
He is father of 13 children by his first and 7 by his last wife---five girls and 15 boys--11 of whom are living. This is the only family by the name Lingo known to them.
His father came across the ocean, an orphan and raised the one boy S.S. Lingo.
He leaves a large family and a multitude of warm friends who regarded him in every way a true Christian, a firm citizen, for that which is right both as a neighbor and as a servant of his country, all to mourn his loss.
His remains was placed by the Masonic order in the old family cemetery near New Cambria.

I know his obituary says he was born in Lincoln Co., TN. But Lincoln Co was not established till 1809. In 1805 it would have been Rutherford County, TN.

He was probably born in Rutherford County, TN which Lincoln county was established out of in 1809.

On the 1810 census there are 20 LINGOs listed: eleven in Sussex County, DE; ONE in New York; three in Virginia; two in North Carolina; and two in Maryland. Federal census records for Tennessee are lost for 1790, 1800, parts of 1810 and 1820, and all of 1890. Only Rutherford County and a portion of Grainger County are available for the 1810 census.

On the 1820 Census his father James is listed in Lincoln Co., TN with a 15 year-old white male in his household.

9 AUG 1825 Samuel married Sarah P. SMITH. The record indicates he was born in 1805 in Tennessee.

On the 1830 Census we find Samuel listed next to his father James in Lincoln Co., TN.

1 OCT 1833 Samuel and his father James each purchased 80 acres of land in Randolph County, Missouri

On the 1850 Census his birthplace is listed as Tennessee.

But on the 1860 and 1870 census Samuel's birthplace is listed as South Carolina.
