CLINE surname

For my first Surname Saturday I will start with the one closest to me.CLINE. My Cline line goes back to my g g grandfather and comes to a dead stop.  He was born @ 1820, in Virginia or Ohio.  He married Martha KING, August 21, 1845 in Logan County Ohio.  According to the 1840 federal census there were 170 CLINE families in the state of Ohio and 3 of them were in Logan County.  None of these can be linked to my James.  In 1850 there were 1,299 Clines in Ohio, 50 of them in Logan County.  5 of those were my family. While I have located several descendents and know there are many more I haven't found, James is still my brick wall.


  1. Welcome to the GeneaBloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
