John Edward Linton (1838-1901) and Mary H. Smily (1832-1877) &

Sallie Fenmore Stonestreet (1861-1926)

 

John Edward Linton, born in 1838, near his father's grist mill in Delaware Water Gap, Stroudsburg, Monroe County, Pennsylvania was the oldest son of Doctor Lewis Colbert Linton (1803-1876) and Sarah Kocher (1810-1870). Both of John's parents were members of the Society of Friends. John only lived in Delaware Water Gap for a little over one year, 1838-1839.

The family moved back to his father's grist mill in Newtown Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. John lived in Bucks County from 1840 to 1846. The family then moved to Spring Garden, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. John lived there from 1846 to 1847. The family then moved to a farm in Greenwich Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey. John was about 14 years old. John lived there for seven years, 1847 to 1854.

According to the 1850 census, John was born in 1836, in Pennsylvania. The family, in late 1854 or early 1855 moved to Sheridan Point Plantation, in the Mount Vernon District, Fairfax County, Virginia. John lived and farmed here for 16 years with his father, mother, brothers and sisters.

According to the November 12, 1860 census, John is 22 years old and a farmer. He is helping his 56 year old father, Doctor Lewis Colbert. Linton, the head of the household, farm his Piney Grove Plantation. Also helping them farm was William Cook. William was a 23 year old, white male, born in New Jersey. John and his father are listed in the census as being on the South Orange and Alexandria Railway at Fairfax County, Virginia.

John Linton's father owned Stock Bond Number 1, of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad. Plus many other ones. No research, at the present time, has reviled that John Linton owned any stock in the Orange and Alexandria Railroad. There is however indentations that John was associated with the South Orange and Alexandria Railroad. An 1856 map drawn by, Quaker, surveyor Warrington Gillingham shows the route of the South Orange and Alexandria railroad line through the Mount Vernon District of Fairfax County, Virginia. Starting in Alexandria, running south between the Potomac River and Point Road (later Sheridan Point Road and then Fort Hunt Road), then turning south west crossing Point Road through the land of John W. Thompson, through the land of Thomas Mason, then crossing Little Hunting Creek between North Branch and Gum Springs, then south through the land of Edward Gibbs, crossing north of George Washington's Mount Vernon Mansion, then to the lines end at Ferry Landing Fishery. The abundance of fish in the Potomac River and the salting of fish for preservation industry was very profitable on the Potomac River from the early 1700's until the beginning of the Civil War.

According to the 1860, Fairfax Society of Friends Monthly Meeting Minutes Records, in Annapolis, Maryland, John Linton was a member of the people known as Quakers. The Quaker Meeting House was located on a track of land donated to the Quaker Meeting by Jacob Troth of "Woodlawn Plantation".
