The many lives of Moses Linville

the many lives of moses linville
or the lives of the many moses linvilles... 
moses linville was not immortal exactly although he had many cousins with the same name... 
william moses linville was the son of david jr. and nancy ragsdale... he married elizabeth nelson and was born about 1827 in forsyth county nc.... he was the father of william alexander linville, columbus frank linville, and newton linville, among others.  
william was not the husband of elizabeth hester... 
elizabeth hester married moses linville b. 1829. 

my third great grandfather moses linville, b.1813, married henrietta white. he was the father of robert lee linville and berry linville. and he was not the husband of bethania hetty cook...  he was however the son of john and sarah busby linville and the grandson of moses linville and an unknown wife....   was he the moses linville who enlisted in 1861 in surry county nc? maybe.... 
moses son of richard was born about 1760 in nc and married elizabeth johnson... he moved his family west to tennessee and died in sparta, white county. he was the father of pleasant c linville and william m linville among others...   

 moses linville b.1829 in stokes county nc married elizabeth hester and was the father of william stephen linville 1852 and newton moses linville 1867 among others... william's death certificate lists his parents moses linville and elizabeth hester... this is not the moses linville born in 1700s.  this moses died in forsyth county nc 1913.... who were his parents??? benjamin fewell linville and mary holbrook or halbrook.... 

my fifth great grand moses linville 1752-1826 was the son of thomas and hannah. wife unknown but was not elizabeth hester. he was the father of john and brace and thomas and moses 1802 among others.... he died before the civil war but may have served in the revolution or the war of 1812... 

his son moses 1802 married bethania cook aka hetty. he was my fifth great uncle. he was the father of nephe, peter and franklin among others. their daughter bethania married an owens... he was probably the moses who enlisted in the war in surry county. there may have been more than one...  he died after 1880 census... 

newton moses linville 1867 1943 of forsyth county nc, was the son of moses linville and elizabeth hester. he married faithie ellen frazier....   he was father of 

Faitha Elizabeth Linville 
Samuel Oscar Linville 
Minnie Jane Long 
William Newton Linville 
Elvie Alice Crim

1791 moses linville married catherine crim. he was the son of david sr. and dorothy fair linville. he was born in nc but moved to indiana. he was the father of sarah c brown and moses jr. 1837.     

1837 was born in indiana and apparently never married he was drafted into the union army in the war and was still living with his mother in 1880 before his death in 97. it is unlikely that he ever went to nc so you can ignore the nc based hints for him...
