(This msg was posted in the Guest Book. I am posting it here for better exposure and perhaps some answers. Denise

I was delighted to read the transcript about David H Lingel. It was full of just the kind of gossipy information you hope to find when you do a family history. It sounds as if it were written by David himself for advertising purposes. I looked up Bert Lingel on Ancestry.com. The only Bert Lingel was in an Illinois State Mental Hospital. Any more news about him? Was he born mentally challenged; did he suffer an injury?

David Lingel was from the Sterling area. You may have better luck researching on the IL Trail/Whiteside site http://iltrails.org/whiteside/ or the Sterling/Rock Falls Historical Society http://www.svonline.net/~srfhs/ Also, the Sterling Public Library has indexed the Daily Gazette newspaper on line http://www.youseemore.com/Sterling/readyref.asp > "Sterling Daily Gazette Index". You can do a search for your surname. Once you know the date, page and column, you can email Marylin for a copy. There is a minimal fee. All of these contacts are listed in our Table of Contents > Whiteside County > Whiteside Contacts.
