I have a copy of an indenture mate the tenth day of January in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety tow between Jackson Harwell of Lincoln county and State of North Carolina, planter of the one part and John Lienberger of the State of Pennsylvania of the other part.....land is situate on the west side of the Cataba (sic) river and is bounded as follows.....Beginning as a solf oak in Barkley's....to a red Oak in Lockman's line...containing one hundred fifty acres of land as appears by patent granted to Samuel Fisher and his assigns and dated the 7th day of August 1787....
This deed was witnessed by PETER (x) LINGBARER (SIC)
I believe that this deed establishes (1) that this John Linebarger (whom I believe to be the father of the John Linebarger of Parke County, Ind.)came to Lincoln County, NC about the date of this deed(1792).Remember that in ANDREW LINEBARGER'S biography that appears in the Parke County history book that he says that his father came to North Carolina from Pennsylvania at the age of 12.JOHN LINEBARGER (OF PARKE COUNTY) is thought to have been born 1776 - 1780 as the 1792 time frame fits.
(2) PETER LINEBARGER witnesses this deed establishing the fact that the two men are at lease acquainted if not related.
