There is a Gaston Co. NC original will for George Rutledge, probate date 1856, at the NC Archives, Raleigh. Abstract of wills names "wife Rachel Rutledge, my seven children," but does not name all seven. Only children named are "sons James and Robert." The will also names "son-in-law J. L. Meginis (McGinnis), my 3 grandchildren Valentine Derr's children John, Luiza, Lenerah."
My suggestion would be to check with the Archives to determine if there is an existing Gaston Co. Estate Record for George Rutledge. This estate record may give the names of all seven children. I would also order a copy of the original will of George Rutledge.
While there are numerous Gaston Co. records at the Archives, many records for this county were lost in a courthouse fire in 1874.
There is no Lincoln Co. will for John Lineberger, however, there is a Lincoln Co. Estate Record for a John Lineberger 1838. You may wish to order this record to determine if it names your Eli Lineberger as a son. There is an orginal Lincoln Co. marriage bond dated 5 Oct. 1840 for Eli Linebarger and Lema (spelling of name in abstract) Rutledge.
