bullet  General Notes:

The name "Lineberry" is a corruption of a German name. Various spellings include Leyenberger, Liujenburger, Lineberger, Leinberger, Lineburger, and Leinburger to name a few. The Lineberry family reportedly originated in Brunschweig, Germany. The immigrant ancestor of the Lineberry family of Orange, Guilford), Randolph and Chatham counties in North Carolina (and subsequently in many states), is believed to be Jacob Lineberry I (Luijunburger), b. between 1717-1724. This spelling and a birth date of 1724 was proposed by Olive H. Patterson, Pleasant Grove, UT in a 1969 letter. Jacob Lineberry (Leinburgher, Leyenberger) received a grant of 242 acres from Henry Eustace McCulloh on June 9, 1763 in Orange County, NC. It is unclear whether this is the first Jacob or the second Jacob. Orange County was formed from Bladen, Johnston, and Granville Counties in 1752, Chatham and Guilford were formed from Orange (1770), and Randolph formed in 1779. On Feb. 6, 1773, Jacob and Catherine Lienburger/Lujenberger deeded Francis and George Linebarger 121 acres each. This was part of the McCulloh land, and by this time it lay in Guilford county. Jacob Lineberry, Sr. received a state grant for 240 acres, in Chatham Co., S. Fork of Rocky River, part of which (24 acres) they deeded to Jacob Linberger, Jr. on Feb. 14, 1780. This land adjoined Jacob Lineberry's land and James Youngblood, Another tract of 100 acres in Chatham county, a state grant of March 3, 1779, adjoined David Fox, Matthew Jones, and vacant land.
