The 1880 Census records a “John Lingo,” a 41-year-old brick mason from Poland. The census records that he was married to Georgia-born Minerva, whose father was from Poland. They had daughters Katil (b.1874) and Minnie (b.1876) and son William (b.1878) as well as “step-daughter” Elizabeth Walker (b.1871). Further investigation shows that John’s surname was likely “Lynges” (b.25 Sep 1837, d.9 Arpr 1900, Oklahoma), and that Minerva was likely the daughter of an American-born David Wesley Morrow (1794-1862). In the 1870 Census, Minerva, Joseph (3) and Lizzie (2) were in family with Abraham P Walker (27) in Henderson, Texas, where he reportedly died later that year (more likely 1872 or 1873, as his daughter Mary was 7 in 1880).
