May 2002: Stone fence around cemetery can be seen on top of a hill across from Pat Craig's Framing Studio. Unknown if it can be accessed from here, but is a long walk from the farm home of Sue Line Dennison.
Cemetery visited 29 June 2002 by Janet Wright, an Associate Professor of Biology at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and graves of John and Barbara located and photographed.
Email received reads:
Greetings from the Old Line Cemetery on Alexander Springs Road in Dickinson Township, Cumberland County, PA. I got over here today to look for John and Anna Barbara Lyne.
There are 30 or 40 graves in that cemetery. It's weedy and full of groundhog holes (watch your step) but most of the headstones are easily readable. Most belong to Lines. Just two stones are very hard to make out, and these turn out to be the Lynes. The two stones are side by side and identical style, though one is broken now and partially sunk into the earth. In the overall picture, one is in the center of the photo and the other, now shorter, is to the left of it
Inscription on tombstone at Old Line Cemetery:

Letter received 13 April 2001 from Ron Wix of the Paxton Presbyterian Church of Harrisburg, PA, Organized 1732 and the oldest Presbyterian Church in Dauphin County:
Dear Mr. Rhodes,
Our church had a serious fire in the 1890s and as a result we lost many old records. We have some of the very old records. I could not find any mention of the name Lyne. I took the liberty of looking at some records and books at a local historical society that I belong to.
Wm Egle, a noted historian, wrote a series of books "Notes and Queries", on Central Penna history. I've enclosed those three pages from the set that refer to John Lyne. Lewis is not mentioned at all.
Sorry I could not be of more help. If you have any other leads on anything, I could check for you. Please feel free to advise.
Very truly yours,
Ron Wix (for Paxton Church
Notes and Queries. -CLXXX.
Ye Olden Inns of Harrisburg. - The following relating to "Taverns on Market Street," were omitted from the series of articles recently published:
A tavern was kept by Mr. Swartz in a building which was demolished by James McCormick, Sr., Esq., when he erected a three-story brick residence, now occupied by Einstein Brothers and is No. 223. This tavern was the principal resort for the printers of that day.
A tavern was kept by Peter Huffnagle on Canal Street above Market Street, was called Green Bay many years since, was afterwards kept by JOHN LYNE & George Schott, William Bomgardner, deceased, who erected a three-story hotel on the site. Peter Huffnagel's tavern did not bear a good reputation, and it was said by the old citizens who lived then that when he was buried, the Rev. John Winebrenner conducted the funeral services, and publicly said that "he had gone to hell."
