CENTRE LINES


The KLINE Family


This column is part of a feature series which focuses on a different Centre County family each week. Five new columns will be released each month unless some technical difficulty enters the picture.

This column's focus is on KLINE. An effort has been made to identify all persons carrying that name in the 1890 U.S. Census, using the Centre County business directory which was formed from a preliminary review of that census before the larger set of 1890 U.S. Census records was destroyed by fire. (Sadly, the postal directory does not typically provide the ages of females, but it's the best record we've got).

One book in the Pennsylvania Room of the Centre County Library in Bellefonte deals with a family named Klein: it is Philip Biddle's Klein--Peck: Prairie Milestones.

There are 19 different first-name entries for Kline in John Blair Linn's History of Centre and Clinton County (1883). In addition, there are many references to the name in Beers' Commemorative Biographical Record of Central Pennsylvania (1898) with three (with an identifiable Centre County connection) having a separate profile: Daniel Z. Kline (b. 1818, s/o John George and Amy (Zimmerman)); H. H. Kline (b. 1867, parents not identified); and Harrison Kline (b. 1841, s/o George and Elizabeth (Fetterolf)).
