    Notes 
    • According to Leonard Lineberry “Well this Jacob Lineberry III married Elizabeth Fanning. She was the daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth Fanning and no doubt they were from Randolph, North Carolina too and he was, he had gone to the end of the edge of Virginia in what was then Grayson County. Grayson County had just recently been cut off in Montgomery County in the year, I believe, 1796. The same year 1796 Jacob Fanning got up there and got a grant of land. You could go up there and buy all the land you wanted for 25 or 50 cents an acre. Rather than handle it, they had agents looking after their business in these locations and they lured to sell the land to get settlers in there, get their names on the actuaries. They would give them a land grant on a parchment about like a sheep skin. These parchment land grants were signed by the governor and dated and I'm sure this date was 1796.

      Perhaps maybe that year or a year later, I'll say 1800 give or take and I'd think it'd be a year prior to 1800 this Jacob who married Elizabeth Fanning and no doubt after Jacob Fanning and his wife had both accompanied them up to Grayson County had come back to Randolph County, North Carolina and of course, Jacob Lineberry III and Elizabeth Fanning were married then and went back into Virginia probably 75 miles or maybe a little more up there into the edge of Virginia. Of course back then all the whole country was in timber, old original, virgin timber they grew many, many thousands of dollars per acre but there was no market for it. They had to cut it down and burn it and get it out of the way in order that they might plant the potatoes, corns and beans and other vegetables and make sure there's feed for the livestock too and of course for the fences there was a lot of chestnut timber up there and that would split very easy and they would make rails out of this chestnut, not the chestnut, logs and uh the chestnut logs would last many, many years 'cause they had a kind of acid in those logs that would resist a lot of rot and insects and so on and so forth like that at this time. They would make the rail fences out of that and of course they'd burn all the rest of it and, of course, the fence would come along. There was various animals up there, I know up in Grayson County I was checking some records in the courthouse I found the name of the man that killed a nasty wolf in Grayson County. At one time after they got settled up there I don't know how in the world they made money of course all the streams were teaming with loaded crop and no doubt many, many poor down animals and perhaps they caught various animals, sold furs and so on and so forth like that and maybe they raised a few cattle or sheep or hogs or something and sold over who knows how they made their money but in 1803, this Jacob the third bought 300 acres of land settling this for up under the river, 300 acres for $300 and no doubt that 300 acres was covered in virgin timber, imagine that.”

      According to The Settlements Jacob "took some part in the county government but was not as active as most his neighbors. In 1806 he was designated by the court to view the road proposed from Crooked Creek by the lower forge to Grayson Courthouse and later he was on the grand jury and was appointed as overseer of the road." "The resource for this information indicates that he married, and settled near Chestnut Creek on Jerry's Branch around 1799. As indicated by his will, this Jacob was well landed having bought, and inherited a number of parcels of land. Jacob paid $300.00 for the land.
