LINGAN, James Maccubin, soldier, born in Maryland about 1752; died in Baltimore, Maryland, 28 July, 1812. He was employed in a store in Georgetown, D. C., when at the beginning of the Revolution he obtained a commission in the army. He fought at Long Island, York Island, and Fort Washington, where he was taken prisoner and confined in a prison ship. After the war he became collector of the port of Georgetown, and, as he is given the title of "general," probably obtained this rank in the militia. He was killed in Baltimore jail, where he had taken refuge, by the mob that destroyed the office of the "Federalist," haying been one of those who rallied to the support of the editor.
