I definitely would enjoy contacting another descendant.My email address is email@example.com.
Thank you very much for providing the information for Martin and Minnie Kleine.I shared the information with my mother and both of us had no idea Martin & Minnie had that many children.
With regards to Joe & Clara Kleine, they had four children: 1) Howard Kleine 2) Virginia Kleine 3) Mary Louise Kleine 4) Joe Kleine
Mary Kleine is my grandmother and Joe Kleine was the youngest of the family.Joe Kleine did provide us some family history information which included that his great-grandfather, Joseph Kleine, made his fortune by selling fabric/goods up and down the Ohio River on a barge.And Joe Kleine mentioned to us that according to family tradition, one of Joseph/Agnes Kleine's son-in-laws (it may have been Henry Detmer) invented the modern day "carpet board" in order to help make it more efficient to sell merchandise to customers on behalf of the family business.
My great-aunt, Virginia Kleine, also possessed the family photo collection of the Kleine family.I am going to try to contact her son, who inherited the photo collection, to see if there any interesting photos of the Kleine family.
