THOMAS S. LINABERGER, farmer, was born on his present place, a farm of 140 acres, situated in Brady�s Bend township, Armstrong Co., Pa., Sept. 19, 1876, son of John and A. M. (Snow) Linaberger. His paternal grandparents were early settlers of this place.

John Linaberger, father of Thomas S., was born on the present home farm in Brady�s Bend township and frequently related to his children how, as a boy, he would be sent by his father to chase the deer out of the grain fields. He became a farmer and in 1861 bought the other heirs� interests in the farm, and when called on to enlist in the Civil war paid a substitute. In politics he was a Republican, but did not seek public office, consenting, however, to serve as a school director in Brady�s Bend township for two years before his death, which took place on his seventy-eighth birthday, in February, 1907. He is buried in the Crawford cemetery.

John Linaberger married A. M. Snow, who was born in Perry township, Armstrong Co., Pa., and eleven children were born to them, the survivors being: Mrs. Henry Vogt; Mrs. John Seibert; Jacob S., of Sugar Creek township; Albert, of Kittannning, and Thomas S. � all of Armstrong county; Mrs. George Ponches, of Donegal township, Butler county; Mrs. Gabe Kaylor, of Fairview township, Butler county; Mrs. Henry Kaylor, of Butler county; and Mrs. William Kelley, of Saltsburg, Indiana Co., Pa. The mother died June 2, 1892. The family was reared in the faith of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

Thomas S. Linaberger received his schooling in Perry township and afterward came to Brady�s Bend township. At the death of his father he and his brother, in 1907, bought the homestead. In 1911 he bought his brother�s interest. He attends to all his farm industries himself, raising crops and keeping his land in good condition, and also raises cattle and sheep. He takes much interest in his agricultural matters and is one of the members of the local Grange.
