      Your Ancestors?
      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),

      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),

      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.
