As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 4 (October 1843 - April 1846), in April 1846 John Lingermann was made a naturalized citizen. A declaration of intention had been filed in the Hendricks Circuit Court more than 2 years before. Robert Ragan and Thomas Samuels testified that Lingermann had resided in Indiana for more than 5 years prior to the application. Lingermann renounced his allegiance to Wilhelm, prince of Hesse Cassel.
