Grandmother Linger was born in 1880, grew up in Lewis County, WV, married and had three children. In 1914 she moved with her husband and children to Randolph County, where they purchased a farm. The farm house (now "Linger In") was about twelve years old.

She was a graduate of The Academy in Buckhannon, West Virginia and enjoyed her home and family as well as travelling. There was always a house full of people and she was a great cook. One of her recipes that was most enjoyed by her guests was the following. Enjoy! Betty Linger
