Cline researchers:

Try this book for VA Cline ancestries:
"Samuel Newell of the Shenandoah Valley and His Descendants. Related Families:
Colville, Miller, Rauch, Bolenbaugh, Elsea, Cline and Riddle Families. " no
author or date cited on the excerpted pages I have. The front page says
microfilm copies of the first edition can be ordered on microfilm through the
Ohio Genealogical Society and the LDS Family History Society in Salt Lake. I
have not seen the book, only a few excerpts about Clines and Elseas.

...... from Mattson, Catherine. Excerpts about the Cline, Elsea and Newell
Families from the above book:

Married 4 times.

"Jacob Cline was in Pickaway Co., OH by 1813; his first property
purchase was in 1820 in Walnut Township. There are 2 Jacob Cline families in
the 1820 Pickaway Co. Census; one living in Pickaway Twp. and the other living
in Walnut Twp. The Jacob Cline living in Pickaway Twp. is between the ages of
18-26 and has 3 children at home. The other Jacob Cline is over 45 years of
age and has 6 children at home. In that census there is also a Conrad Cline
and Philip Cline.

Washington Twp., and the other living in Walnut Twp. There is also a

Whether Jacob was related to thoese other Cline families has been
difficult to determine. Jacob did not have any children named Conrad, Henry,
William or Philip. .... In the probate of Jacob Cline is a debt of $165.00
owed by Philip Cline of OH."
