End of Middle-Earth Can't Post

I'm not here to troll tonight. I just have one question.
Does the line of Durin not have any descendents other than
Thorin Oakenshield, Kili, and Fili? Those three are lost after
the Battle of Five Armies. It is saddening that Azog and the goblins
endeavor to destroy the line of Durin, and essentially they accomplish
this feat at the battle.

As in LoTR, the Elves are leaving for the Grey Havens, and the Hobbits eventually
fade from memory. Durin's line is no more, and the proud prestige of Dwarven history,
yet manifested in the living heirs of Durin, becomes a mere whisper of
a bygone age. Lesser men inherit Middle-Earth and the vestiges of a wonderful world
with its fantastic creatures comes to an end.

Does Tolkien not leave one heir to perpetuate the line? If so it's a rending end to
everything magical in Middle-Earth.

ok...this does seem like bait Cool darn it!
