History of Greene County,
LINDSEY HINERMAN, farmer and stock-grower, was
born June 16,
1828, on the farm he now owns in Aleppo

British soldier, but remained in this country.
He was, like many other members of the family, a farmer. Mr. Hinerman’s father came from Millsborough, Washington

in 1832, where he spent his life as a farmer and died in 1876. Lindsey is the fifth in a family of eight
children. He was reared on the farm and
attended the subscription schools. He
has made farming his main pursuit and owns 167 acres of valuable land,
stocked and improved. Our subject was
employed on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad from 1848 to 1853. In May, 1853, Mr. Hinerman married Miss
Elizabeth, daughter of Jacob and Mary (Whipkey) Slonaker.
Their children are M. S., Martha J., wife of
John Tasker; Sarah, wife of H. Wise; Emeline, wife of Sherman W. S.
David, Mary, J. W. H. and Ellsworth. Mr.
