At the age of 18, on 26 December 1936, he married Lois Mozelle Saunders.
Together, they had three children.
- Elsie Louise Lineberry
- James Marshall Lineberry
- Angela Frances Lineberry
Granny Lineberry would spoil them by playing Uno games with them (a game that is still very prevalent in my husband's family). Her grandson, Andrew, recalls she was "ruthless" when it came to playing Uno. She did not just let them win. She also spoiled them by cooking them whatever foods and desserts they wanted to eat. She "loved on" the kids, Angie said.
Paw-paw, on the other hand, gave the kids things, money or gifts, to spoil them. He also hated green beans, so he never made the grandkids eat them. Instead, he would give them chocolate pudding and bananas... foods he enjoyed. Andrew shared his dislike of green beans. In fact, he still hates green beans to this day. I find it funny, though, that green beans were one of his Granny Lineberry's favorite foods.
