The Linville family in WV were mostly in two places (Boone Lincoln co) and the Clarksburg (Harrison co). The Boone and Lincoln Linville's came from NC. The Clarksburg Linville's came the the Shenandoan Valley of Virginia. I have information on the Boone?lincoln Linville, but the names that you mention do not ring any bells with me. Sorry

Dear Sue,
Thank you for replying. Off-hand, I'd say my Linvilles were from VA rather than NC, but that's because everyone else on that side of the family seems to be, including my Roberts relations! Great-grandma Mary Loretta Sandy (dau. of Binjamin T. Sandy & Miriah Linville) d. in Clarksburg, WV.
And what a coincidence that your last name is Roberts! My grandmother Winnie Gladys Creamer (b. 1906 WV, possibly Lumberport) married Okey Freeman Roberts (b. 1901 WV, possibly Tyler Co.). Okey was the son of Henry Freeman Roberts (b. 1872 WV - d. 1935 Marion Co., WV) and Melvina Jane Main(e) (b. 1870 Tyler Co., WV - d. 1957 Shinnston, WV). Henry's father was Joseph Roberts, about whom I know nothing. Henry and Okey had a number of siblings, so I've got Robertses scattered all over that northwestern section of WV and beyond. If there is any possibility of a connection, let me know and I'll give you more detail.
All my best, Vicky

Vicky, I am sorry that I haven't responded to your message sooner but I couldn't find my password for this mailbox and then when I did find it I couldn't get in. It is amazing that you have Roberts in your line also. I would think that yours and my late husbands Roberts probably fit together at some point, but I haven't really gotten him out of WV/VA with PROOF. There is a small Roberts book but there are problems with it, but most of what is recent "last one hundred years" looks pretty good. At least what was covered on my husbands family. It's almost 10:00 pm and these old bones get tired rather easily any more and that 6:00 am alarm comes too soon. If I can find another copy of that book, I'll email you. I'm not sure that I have your email address but here is my "home address" sueroberts@citynet.net. Maybe we can compare Roberts, but I am also sure that our Linville's will eventually link. Maybe two hundred years, but it is still neat to find new cousins. Night, Sue R.

I am a Linville from Clarksburg, WV. If I can help you, I would be happy to. Mariah, I believe was a daughter of John Linville and Margaret Gifford. They also had a son named William Jasper Linville who was my great, great grandfather. I know that John came from the Shenandoah Valley of VA, but I can't find the line from there with any certainty. Any suggestions? Susan Demeria

To those that are interested - lol
You have to go back 2 or 3 generations to find a common connection for the two branches of the Linville family in WV. There were two Linville brothers, John and Thomas, that came to America (PA) with their parents. Both branches of the Linville family in WV are descendants of John - actually descendants of two different sons of John. All three of John's sons wandered down through VA to NC and SC. Hope that helps a bit. Yes, Miriah was the daughter of a John Linville / Margaret Gifford. I have this line all the way back to arrival in America if interested.

Does the history that you have indicate a portion of the Linvilles moving to IN in the 1800s and then another small group moving to Van Buren County in NE Arkansas? There is still a group of Linvilles in Van Buren County. I think Linzey Linville and/or Charley Linville were some of the names from the late 1800s living in AR. Any help would be appreciated.
