Dear John - Did you ever get a copy of the book?I have a zerox copy which I can duplicate and send to you if you did not get a copy yet. I'm a Linebarger from Arkansas, but I know there is a Michael L. branch from here also.They have some relatives with an annual reunion is Purdy, MO, which is near Joplin. They are great people and have lots of information.I don't know if this email address is still good since I got it over a year ago and haven't tried to use it, but you might try.It is: firstname.lastname@example.org I'm from the Andrew L. family from Indiana, and his son Samuel is my ggfather and is buried here in Bentonville, AR where I live near.Also Samuel's youngest son,Clarence (my gfather) and C. A, my father are all buried with him. Clarence and his brothers FW & CC started the original Bella Vista as a summer resort - It is now expanded to Bella Vista Village and is a retirement community of 34,000 acres with 7 golf courses & 5 lakes.Fun place, but that's the way we Linebargers have liked it for the past 100 years! Let me know if you need the book.Also if you are a sci-fi reader, Cordwainer Smith is the pseudonym for Paul Myron L., who also is off the John L. branch.Fun, huh?
