Lewis Linebarger b. 1800 Lincoln Co NC arr'd Oregon autumn 1843, part of the Pioneer Wagon Trains.Settled claim on 10 Apr 1853, Oregon Donation Land Claim. He relinquished 1/4 sect to John Wheaton. Affidavit by Lovell Knighton, O. A. Wills, J.W. Gilmour,and Mary Knighton. Mary was Mary Grace Linebarger, who married Lovell Knighton 25 March 1852 in Albany Linn Co. Oregon. Lovell is listed as the son of Ammon Knighton & Fanny Cox.Eventually the family ends up in Ellensburg WA. If you go to you will find a great family history on the Linebarger family. In the ascendantcy of this family is a Barbara Maria Brown who married into the line (John Henderson Linebarger on 10 Sept 1850 in San Francisco CA).She was also called "Mariah" and was the d/o John Brown & Temperance Medley> Read it thru...very interesting. Might help you over your brick wall. If you have trouble, e-mail me & I will tell you how I got there via a accidental root.
