I'm interested in the family of a Michael Cline, b. ca. 1789 in PA, d. sometime between 1860 and 1870, probably in Clay Twp., Knox Co., OH. Cline was previously in Belmont Co., OH, and moved to Knox Co. in the 1840s.He probably married twice; the wife listed for him, Phebe, was considerably younger than him.
It is believed that one of Michael Cline's daughters was a Margaret Cline, who married Reuben Thomas Ferrell of Belmont Co. in 1836.She apparently died not long after, though at least one child came from the marriage, Samuel Ferrell, b. ca. 1837.Samuel Ferrell is found in 1860 living between Michael Cline and Samuel B. Cline, the latter a son of Michael's, in Clay Twp., Knox Co.
I'm hoping to locate probate materials for Michael Cline, which may or may not list Samuel Ferrell as an heir (being the only child of Margaret Cline Ferrell, deceased.My relationship with the family is via the second marriage of Samuel Ferrell's father Reuben, this time to Nancy Grimes of Belmont Co.Their son Chalmers Hewitt Ferrell/ Farrell was my gr-grandfather.
Any help with this family will be most appreciated.
