Divorce Action in Williams County, Ohio - Lingle (David)

Mary J. Twiford Lingle v Daniel or David Lingle (Journal 5 p513 - July 1856; Roll 10 case number 160 - July 1857)

By Pamela Pattison Lash (updated 28 April 2013)

The couple was married on 12 Oct 1848 in St Joseph Twp, Wms Co (Marriage V2 p102).  Mary stated before the court that the date was 4 Oct 1847 (double checked the date in Williams Co and it is clearly 12 Oct 1848).  She said she was an Ohio resident for the past ten years or more.  The 1850 St. Joseph Twp federal census, p78B, enumerated the family as David 36 PA, Mary 32 OH, John 7 OH, Nancy 5 OH, William 3 OH, and Emmanuel 1 OH.  David was born on 18 Dec 1812 in Kishacoquilla Valley, Armstrong Co, PA or Linglestown, Dauphin Cp, PA, the son of Paul and Mary Spohn Lingle.  

Mary told the court that Daniel had abandoned her on 15 Nov 1854.  He owned property in St. Joseph Twp, valued at $1200.  She requested alimony but the case was dismissed.  The couple had the following children: William, Emmanuel, and Andrew Jackson Lingle.  John and Nancy were issue from Daniel's first marriage or Mary may have been married before, if the marriage data is correct. In the 1870 Eldorado, Benton Co, IA federal census p74A the Lingle family was listed as David 57 PA, Mary J 42 OH and five children – Emanuel, Jackson, Thomas, Jacob, and Harman. The couple resided in IA as of 1895 (Moville, Woodbury Co, IA).  Daniel died on 16 Mar 1899 in Kalispell, Flathead Co, Montana; Mary Jane died between 1902-1904 in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
