52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks #16 – George Alex Lineberry

My mother’s grandfather was George Alex Lineberry (making him my great-grandfather). He was the 6th child/3rd son of Jacob P. and Piety Thomas Smith Lineberry, born February 3, 1844 in Grayson County, Virginia. Although my mother and her brothers moved to Virginia in February of 1922, she didn’t get to meet her grandfather because he […]

52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks # 14 – Jacob P. Lineberry

Jacob P. Lineberry was my great-great-grandfather on my mother’s side. Jacob was actually the fifth known generation of sons named Jacob, although the original last name was Leyenberger.

So for the second in the series proposed by Amy Johnson Crow of No Story Too […]

Charles Davis is my 4th great-grandfather on my mother’s side [Virginia Lineberry > Jacob Lineberry > Rhoda Harmon > Delila Davis > Morris Davis > Charles Davis]. I knew nothing about him other than his and his wife’s name, a birth date and an approximate death date and location. Early spellings of the last name […]

52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks – #25 Morris Davis

Morris Davis was my 3rd great-grandfather [my mother Virginia Lineberry Willis > Jacob Lineberry > Rhoda Harmon Lineberry > Delila Davis Harmon > Morris Davis]. As is the case for most of my more distant ancestors, I have more questions than I have document-supported answers. He was born in Virginia, perhaps in Wythe County, to […]
