    Notes 
    • This line became known as the Randolph Lineberry's.

      According to W.S. Lineberry in his 1918 book The Lineberry Family “There is a little incident connected with my greatgrandfather, Jacob Lineberry II, that I feel bound to relate. In the time of the Revolutionary War he was a Whig. (God bless the name I love it yet.) He came home one time to see his family and get something to eat. Old Grandmother got the big oven by the fire and was cooking him a big corn pone which we older ones loved, but the preent generation knows but little of, and I must say that they have missed a great treat if they never tasted pone bread. Those whohave read the history of the Revolution know how David Fanning, a Tory officer who commanded a company of men, mostly Tories, ravaged the country from Fayetteville up to the mouth of Deep River, and how they committed murder, rape and arson, and how they left ruin and destitution wherever they went, committing all kinds of depredation. Grandfather was sitting by the fire waiting for his bread, when some of the family looked out and said ‘Dave Fanning is coming!’ Grandfather seized his gun and poked it through a crack in the wall and took aim at Fanning and no doubt would have brought him down, as he was said to be a good marksman, but Grandmother seized his arm and with tears in her eyes begged him not to kill him, for if he did his men would murder the whole family. I can see him now, brave man that he was, standing there meditating what to do. Finally, for the sake of the family, he withdrew his gun, jumped out at the back door and ran. The Tories fired several shots at him but their shots went wild, and he made his escape. Some of the family took the bread, ran upstairs and hit it in the big chest, but Fanning’s men smelled it and never left the house until they found it and carried it with them.” pg 3-4

      According to Leonard Lineberry in a late 1980 audio “This Jacob Jr eventually was an old Revolutionary War Veteran. At one time he was at home and saw this detachment of British soldiers led by some infamous British officer that was known for his murderous (rigorous) acts and, of course, Jacob Jr saw him coming and ran on an hid. His wife had baked for a large cake of corn bread and it was hot and very odorous, pleasant to the masculine appetite. She wrapped it in some clothing of some kind and hid it in the chest. The officer came in...through it and they got it and they ate it themselves. Of course, they could find no men folk there and they went on. But Jacob Jr could have easily killed this British officer but knew that he would massacre the whole family had he chosen to do so.” [1]
