Pictures from Cline Cemetery on Timber Ridge. It is surrounded by the stone wall and located on private property. The stone marked 1733 is Elias Linkenhoker. I thought I had other pictures. There are a lot of unmarked graves in this cemetery. I am sure my father can tell you a lot more on this cemetery.

Here is what I have on the connection between Booze family and Elias. Elias daughter Peggy (Margaret) married Abraham Booze (Boose). Abraham was son of Peter Booze (Boose) who came down from Adams County PA.

On the marriage license, Abraham signs his name as BOOSE.

In 1850 census occupation listed as farmer with land worth $2,158.

According to a document from the Linkenhoger family, Rebecca's father, Elias Linkenhoker gave each of his children 100 acres upon their marriage. Elias owned about 100 acres in the Timber Ridge area of the county.

The following is information found about land Abraham and or Rebecca owned in Botetourt County.
