The Stiner Family - Part I

William Henry Stiner was born in 1830 in Mississippi or Louisiana and died in 1900. His parents names are unknown. He can be traced back to 1860 in Lawrence County, Arkansas on the census. He married a war widow named Clarissa Angaline Brown Lingo in Lawrence County, Arkansas in 1864. Angaline's had married her first husband, William Lingo near Walnut Ridge (Stranger's Home), Lawrence Co, Arkansas. He served in the Civil War with William Henry Stiner. They were in the First Arkansas Infantry and were both wounded. William Lingo told William Stiner that if he died he wanted W H to go back and marry Angaline and take care of her and their two boys, Wally and Gussie Lingo. William and Angaline Stiner came to Mountain Home where Wally and Gussie died of a fever. They had children Jacob Henry Stiner (also buried in Fluty cemetery with his wife and daughter), John Stiner and Mary Stiner Beamon. Anagline was said to be from Posey Co, IN, where she had at least two sisters.
