      Jefferson Pinkney Linder is one of the enterprising and industrious agriculturists of this region, and is a son of Abraham W. and Itea (Templeman) Linder, the former of whom was born in Spartanburg District, S. C. He was of English (that is incorrect it should be, German) descent, his grandfather having emigrated from England (incorrect) to America 'before the outbreak of
      the Revolutionary War, and took an active part in that struggle on the side of the Colonists. He settled in North Carolina, and there reared his family, his son John, the grandfather of our subject, being born there (incorrect, born in Va.). He was married in that State and at an early day removed to South Carolina where his son was educated and grew to manhood. He was also married there and eight of his children were born there prior to the year 1844. After which they moved to Alabama and settled in Benton County, where four more children were given them. Their names are as follows:
      John A. (born July 18, 1823),
      CaIvin D. (born July 1, 1825),
      Elizabeth Ann (born July 10, 1827),
      Delilah E. (born September 9, 1829),
      James Templeman (born April 17, 1832),
      Lewis M. (born October 24, 1834),
      Austin A. (born March 17, 1837)

      Mary A. (born October 6, 1841),
      Arcena S. (born March 21, 1844),
      Virgil Taylor (born June 3 1848) and
      Martha C. (born on March 8, 1851).
      The father and mother of these children were born on September 23, 1803, and February 27 , 1807, respectively, and in 1857 they came to Arkansas. Abraham Linder and his sons were opposed to secession, but Lewis M. and Austin A. espoused the Confederate cause after the ordinance of secession had been passed, and served as members in a company of Arkansas Volunteer Infantry. Lewis M. died of measles while at home on a sick furlough, and Austin was mortally wounded at the battle of Helena, Ark, on July 4, 1863, and was taken from the field where he fell by the Federals to a hospital at Memphis and there he died. Jefferson Pinkney Linder (our subject) was reared to farm life and received his education principally in the subscription schools of Atlanta, whither his father had moved from South Carolina. He embraced religion at the age of twenty-one years, and is now a member of the Presbyterian Church. On Dec. 4, 1861, he was married to Miss Lucinda Jane Shelton, a daughter of John F. and Martha Payne (Milam) Shelton, of Shelby County, Tenn., her birth occuring in that county on May 8, 1846. The names of their children are here given:
      Thomas Jefferson (born March 28, 1863),
      Laura Eudora (born August 24, 1865),
      Margaret Itea (born December 26, 1867),
      John Robert (born January 6, 1870),
      Charles Henry (was born on February 1, 1873, and died August 1, 1875), McWilliam (was born on .August 4, 1875,)
      Oscar B. (was born on September 5, 1877),
      Albert Lee (born February 8, 1880),
      Mertie Velmar (born March 23, 1882, and died October 9, 1884),
      Vida May (born June 16, 1884, and died August 3, 1886).
      Burrilah (born on February 14, 1887).
      Thomas J. was married to Miss Fannie Dennis, of Henderson County, Tex, on December 23, 1886, and is now farming in Monroe County, Ark. Laura E. became the wife of S. N. Trotter, and lives in Monroe County, Ark. Margaret Itea bore one child by her husband J. W. Acree, but is now separated from him by mutual consent. Mr Linder has been noted for his industry and thrift, and on commencing life these constituted his capital stock and well he has made use of them, being now the owner of 360 acres of land, his first purchase being only 80 acres. He has 100 acres under cultivationand makes a specialty of stock raising,his mules being of a fine grade, and he also has some very fine horses of the Tone Hal breed. Mr Linder was troubled for some time with a scrofulous white swelling on one of his legs which finally resulted in the loss of that member, the operation being performed in 1879. He is a man possessing a fund of useful information and is a Democrat in his political views. Himself and wife and four children are members of the Baptist Church.

      JOHN R. LINDER: White County Arkansas History
      John R. LINDER, attorney at law of Beebee, has
      spent his life in Ark., his birth having occurred in
      White Co., Jan. 6, 1870, his parents being Jefferson
      P. & Lucy J. (SHELTON) LINDER. The family has
      long been represented on American soil. The paternal
      grandfather, Abraham LINDER, was a native of
      the Spartanburg district of S. Carolina & was a well
      educated man, who devoted his life to teaching in
      his native state for a number of years and then made
      an overland trip with ox team & wagon to Ark.,
      crossing the rivers on ferries. This was in 1858 &
      after reaching this state he contiued in the teaching
      profession, being connected largely with private
      schools. He married a Miss TEMPLEMAN, a native
      of South Carolina, who died about he year 1864,
      while his death occurred in 1874, when he was 70
      years of age.

      Their son, Jefferson P. LINDER, came with his
      parents to what was then Conway Co., Ark. in 1858.
      He was there married to Miss Lucy SHELTON, who
      was born in Shelby county, Tenn., and who went
      from Memphis to Des Arc, making the boat trip in
      order to visit her sister, but owing to the hostilities
      between the north & the south she could not return.
      She became aquainted with Jefferson P. LINDER &
      they were married in what is now Faulkner Co. Subsequently,
      they removed to White Co. where Mr.
      LINDER purchased wooded land, which he cleared
      & developed, carrying on general farming & stock
      raising. During the last 10 years of his life he also
      preached to a considerable extent throughout the
      community, he & his wife being members of the
      Missionary Baptist church. His political endorsement
      was given to the democratic party. He died
      July 27, 1903, at the age of 64 years, while his wife
      departed this life Aug. 11, 1910, at the age of 63
      years. They had a family of 12 children, 5 of whom
      are still living:

      Laura, the wife of S. M. TROTTER, a farmer of Lamar, Ark.;
      John R.;
      Charles, who is farming in White Co;
      Oscar B., a barber of Calif.;
      and Albert, also farming in White Co.
      Those who have departed this life are:
      Thomas J., who died in Monroe Co., Ark., in 1889, at the age of 21 years;
      Maggie, who was the wife of J. W. ACREE & died in 1919, at the age of 47;
      2 who died in infancy;
      Myrtle & Belmer, who died at the age of 2 years; &
      Berley, who died when 16 years of age.

      John R. LINDER is indebted to the public school
      system of White Co., Ark., for the educational opportunities
      he enjoyed. He remained at home until he had
      attained his majority & began reading law at the age
      of 18 years. He entered upon practice in the judicial
      court & in 1901 was admitted to practice in the district
      & circuit courts. He opened his law office in
      Beebee where he has continued in the general practice
      of law & has been connected with much important
      litigation. He is also numbered among the lawmakers
      of the state, having served in the general assembly
      in 1905, through election on the democratic
      ticket. He gave thoughtful & earnest consideration to
      the vital questions which came up for settlement & at
      all times he has been actuated by devotion to the general
      good in his attitude toward all public questions.
      Mr. LINDER was married to Miss Mattie E.
      HILL, a native of White Co., Ark., and they have become
      parents of 9 children, 6 of whom are living:
      Harvey, now residing in Pittsburg, Penn., where he is
      engaged in vocational training, is a veteran of the
      World war. He enlisted in St. Louis in the regular
      army in 1917, was at Jefferson Barracks & later was
      sent to Boston, Mass., where he was in training. He
      then went overseas & was connected with the Medical
      Corps in France for 6 months. After his return
      home he again went to France, where he married a
      French girl; Pearl, the second of the family, is the
      wife of W. E. DAVIS, a farmer of Beebee, Ark.; Bernard,
      who is bookkeeper with the Buckeye Cotton Oil
      Co. of Little Rock, married Marie WESTBROOK, a
      native of Ark.; Robert is following the profession of
      nursing at Little Rock; Earnie & Mabel are at home.
      Ruth & Thomas died at the age of 2 months & 3
      years, respectively, while one child died in infancy.
      The religious faith of the family is that of the Baptist
      church & Mr. LINDER is serving as clerk. He also
      belongs to the Woodmen of the World. The greater
      part of his time and attention is given to his profession
      & he has made steady progress in a calling
      where advancement depends entirely upon individual
      merit & ability. He is a close student of the principles
      of law & is seldom, if ever, at fault in the application
      of these principles to the point in litigation. (Source:"A
