Either someone reported the info wrong on the death record or this could be the wrong Perry Linger..
If you would like I could send you names from census records of the children of these people.

Betty,
Thanks for your quick reply on the Casto/Linger query which I posted to the Roane County, WV list. You said you could send the children listed in the census. If you find time I would certainly appreciate it. This has been one of my brick walls.
