About the Project

The Cline Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Cline name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Cline name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Clines), by time period (18th Century Clines), or by topic (Cline DNA, Cline Occupations, Cline Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

Thank you for letting me join this group.

My great grandfather was Stewart Owen Cline 1876-1957. The son of Francis Marion CLine (1853- 1935) and Mary Maud Holloway. Francis was the son of William Cline born 1819 Shenandoah Co., Va married to Adeline Wilson. He moved to Perry Co and Harrison Co. Indiana. William was son of George Cline and Mary Williams, again born in Sheandoah Co., Va and moved to Harrison Co., Indiana. George the son of Michael Cline/Klein born in Manchester, York Co., Pa and Eve Druck. Michael Klein the son of Andreas Klein born ? about 1715 where? and Anna Florentina. I have their childern and birth dates, but can't find anything on Andreas, other than he was in York Co., prior 1747 via land records that indicated he had settled on his property for 20 years.

Any help would be appreciated.

Much of this info came from researcher Glenn Cline (distant cousin) who died several years ago. GedMatch # A377056, my mom A310679, my uncle #A878824

Updated with edits:

My earliest known Cline ancestor was supposedly born in North Carolina in 1779, according to the 1850 census record for Forsyth County. Peter Cline-2450 was a farmer, married to Marry Anna Henning. Henning-1019 whose father had been a Hessian soldier during the Revolutionary War. Since both families appeared in the same part of North Carolina around the same time I am wondering if perhaps Peter's father could have been a Hessian soldier also. It is just a thought, but if anyone has any information or thoughts to share I would appreciate it.

Forsyth County was formed from Stokes in 1849, and there had previously been Clines there. Other places this Cline/Klein/Kline family had lived are the Yadkin District of Forsyth, and Yadkin County.

I would like to hear from any others in this group whose Cline/Kline/Klein ancestors were in North Carolina during this time period. The counties most likely to have relatives are Stokes, Forsyth, Yadkin, Surry, and surrounding areas. I have been looking at profiles and comparing GedMatch numbers without success. However, I may have missed something, or perhaps there is a missing link. It is rather far back to expect a match, but here is my GedMatch #: M512933. Thanks and best wishes to you all.

Doris Elaine (Messer) Smith was the daughter of Myrtle (Cline) Messer Barclay.

Doris will have a headstone set beside Myrtle at the Bartlett Cemetary by the end of 2017. She will have her ashes interred there. She was a deeply spiritual and kind and gentlewoman.

I just received a DNA match, 3rd-4th cousin, with a person whose last name is Cline. He has no info on his Cline branch, so we agreed to work together. I am pretty sure at this point we are related on my mom's side, and not the Cline side at all, which was a big surprise. This is what we know. James Cecil Cline born 1896 in Texas. His father of the same name born in 1875 in Arkansas. I'm finding nothing for either person. Any suggestions?
Please whittle down the list of profile managers. You currently have fourteen; WikiTree says that four or five is too many.

Bieber-5 and Bieber-12 appear to be the same person. They are part of the Cline family name study. Could someone with experience in this area please check them out. Thanks

David CLINE (various spellings) ( to be in hiding. I can find no solid proof of who his parents were. "German Speaking People West of the Catawba River in NC 1750-1800" by Lorena Shell Eaker” states that he married Sarah Salome Carpenter in about 1786 but “no one has any idea who this David Cline is”. The Family Data Collection shows him being born 1770 to Christopher Stoffle Kline and Margaret Ramsour in Rowan County, North Carolina, USA and gives a date of death as December 10, 1828 in Lincoln City, North Carolina, but offers no proof other that what other persons have written. Bob Carpenter in his book “Carpenters A Plenty” gives his DOB and DOD and census information but depends on recollections of various members of the family.

I am wondering if his full name wasn’t David Cline, but David is his first or second name. Perhaps he is something like John David Cline or David Franklin Cline or some variation of those. If anyone is familiar with him please get in touch. William Hull

Also try to add the FindAGrave Memorial number to your Cline profiles.

The template can be added if the number is known. That can be done by hand or the editbot. The more we have numbers or templates, the better Wikitree will grow. Let me know if you need help. Jon P Czarowitz Czarowitz-1
