History of Hendricks County, 1914-1976,
"Johann Lingemann Family
In the year of 1832, Johann Lingeman (B. 1800; D. 1872) and his wife, Anna Elizabeth (B. 1809; D. 1869) together with their twin son (B. 1826; D. 1909) and daughter, John and Catherine, immigrated to America from their home in the province of Hesse-Casel, Germany. Johann Lingemann, a tailor by trade, had decided to leave his native land because of compulsory military training in Germany.
For a short time, they lived in Ohio, but moved to Hendricks County, Indiana, settling first at New Winchester and then at Brownsburg.
In 1839, another son Samuel was born to the Lingemanns. He was a student at Wabash College when the Civil War started. He enlisted in October, 1861, together with Gen. Lew Wallace, author of "Ben Hur", and Col. Henry Lane, Governor of Indiana and U.S. Senator, Samuel was commissioned as a first lieutenant and was promoted to captain on June 30, 1863.
While on a furlough in 1864, visiting his parents, Samuel died of pneumonia and was buried at New Winchester. His body was later moved to the Lingemann Cemetery at Brownsburg, where his father and mother are buried. By that time, the family had dropped the final "n" in their name and the name became Lingeman.
