    Notes 
    • According to Leonard “There's another Jacob, who we'll call Jacob the fourth and he was my great grandfather he married Piety Thomas Smith and she was named after her father and I knew heard of anything like that before. There buried there in Carroll County in the old Hebron Cemetery. This cemetery is well maintained today by some of the descendants of these people.

      This Jacob, then, had an old iron forge down on Crooked Creek near his home and they would be down in this county with their ox wagon dig out this very low grade iron ore and evidently this forge, there on the Crooked Creek, was in operation probably before 1850. They headed down across the creek there these large timbers were operated by water power and, of course they go down in this county there it must have been a distance of 30 or 40 miles and dig this old ore out, it was pretty close to the surface. Dig it out by hand, load it up in those wagons and bring it on up to there to the forge. Then they would go up in the hills and cut down oak trees and split the wood and stand it up on end then begin to burn it. When it began to burn they would cover it up earth so it would burn into charcoal and they would use that as their fuel. Smelting ore. When it was melted and everything they'd get it out there and use, use those hammers one of them weighed 700 pounds and the other one 350 pounds and the water powered would bring those hammers up got up so high and down they would they would come down on this iron beat them out shapes, desired shapes they would like. People would come in from miles around with their oxen and horses and everything just to see the operation of this because it was such an unusual operation and something new that the people around had never seen anything like. Of course, when they'd go up to that hit that hot iron sparks would fly all of the tar nation and scare man and best alike.

      During the Civil War they were constricted to make iron to a certain specifications for the Confederate forces then after they were made them they had to put them on the wagon and carry them in to work a distance of some 40 to 50 miles, they had to go and had cross the river, a New River, and geologists tell us that New River is the world's second oldest river, cross that river on a plank head over to the railroad station there in ?, the nearest railroad.”
    • “After his wife, Piety’s death, Jacob may have lived with his daughter and it is said that one evening Jacob was overeating barbequed ribs when his daughter scolded him for eating so much. He then pushed himself away from the table and never ate again thereby starving himself to death.” Leonard Lineberry
