John Linville Jr.1

M, b. before 1765, d. between 1817 and 1819
     John Linville Jr. was born before 1765. He was the son of John Linvill and Maria Anna Christina Stephens. He married Elizabeth Shiverdecker, daughter of Johann Jacob Shiverdecker and Maria Catherine Koehler, on 23 October 1792 at Frederick Co, VA..2 He died between 1817 and 1819 at Harrison Co, WV..

John's parentage is not proven. John Linville first appears in Harrison County tax records in 1806. He appears through 1817 and in 1819 his widow Elizabeth is listed. There are no land records for him.
Two sons of William and Mary (Donaldson) Linville of Darby, Pennsylvania bought land in Harrison County, but the purchases have not yet been connected to John Linville. Thomas Linville bought 343 acres on Elk Creek, Harrison Co. in 1786. He is listed in the 1796-1806 land tax book for every year, but is not listed in the household tax lists, so he must have not lived there.
William Linville bought 203 acres on Raccoon Branch of Gnatty Creek, Harrison Co, in 1790, and his children sold the property in 1834. There is no record of him ever living there.

John Gifford1,2,3

M, b. from 1750 to 1760, d. 19 October 1825
     John Gifford was born from 1750 to 1760 at Shrewsbury Twp., Monmouth Co, NJ.. He was the son of Benoni "Benjamin" Gifford. He married Mary Jacobs, daughter of Jacob Jacobs and Hannah Johnson, circa 1778. He died on 19 October 1825 at Harrison Co, WV..

John Gifford settled in Monongalia Co., (W)VA, in 1773. [WV Land Grants, Monongalia Co., Bk#1, 1782-85: John Deut/Dent was an assignee of John Gifford for 392 acres and it "includes the said Gifford settlement made thereon in the year 1773.] He is listed (5 persons in household) in the 1782 tax list of Monongalia, VA., which included Harrison County. In 1785, his 289 acres in Harrison County was surveyed. It was on the headwaters of MudLick Creek, a drain of the West Fork, (southeast of present day Shinnston, Harrison Co.) In 1806, he purchased an adjacent 400 acres of land, which he later sold to his sons. From land and tax records, John Gifford appears to have remained there all his life.
(Comment:

There is no proof that Benoni is the father of John Gifford. However, extensive Gifford family research by Steve Warling shows the probability of this relationship. Steve states "DNA testing of living descendants of John GIFFORD has shown that he was a great-grandson of the original Annaniah GIFFORD of Monmouth Co, NJ. John is listed as a son of Benoni/Benjamin for the following reasons: 1) Mary JACOBS parents were married in Monmouth Co, 2) Benjamin is the best fit among the names of John's oldest sons, 3) John had a son named Job, 4) John had a daughter named Margaret.")4

Sarah A. Flowers1,2,3,4

F, b. 25 May 1799, d. 5 December 1874
     Sarah A. Flowers was born on 25 May 1799 at PA. She was the daughter of Benjamin Flowers and Elizabeth (---). She married Moses Leander Sine, son of William Sine Jr. and Margaret Christy. She was a charter member of "the Christian Church on the waters of Dunkard and naborhood of John Myers" in 1835 at Monongalia Co, WV..5 She died on 5 December 1874 at Monongalia Co, WV., at age 75. She was buried at Shriver Cemetery, Monongalia Co, WV..
(Comment: The only information that Sarah was the daughter of Benjamin and Sarah Flowers is the 1808 Greene Co, PA. Orphan Record, giving the names of Benjamin's children, including Sarah under the age of 14. According to the Journal of Christy Sine (brother of Moses), their family moved from York Co, PA to Fayette Co, PA in October 1804, and then moved on to Greene County PA in summer 1810. (This time period matches the Fayette Co, PA tax records)

So Moses Sine (b. Jan 1793) would have been in Greene County, PA. from 1810 to at least 1814 when his father moved to Monongalia Co. VA. We do know that his wife Sarah Flowers was born May 1799. This does match the approximate age of Sarah daughter of Benjamin Flowers of Greene County.)6,7
