We are most likely from the same general Linger line. Many of our family were from that area. What was the name of the parents of Stephen? Our original US Linger was Nicholas Linger born about 1763 in Germany.
Teresa, What is your connection to the Linger family? Are you related to the Virginia/West Virginia group? I am Evelyn Linger Thorn. My line is the Linger/Francis line. I have a lot of Linger information and would be happy to swap.
