Seeking information on Jacob CLISE in Frederick County, Maryland. He was born Sept. 19, 1777 prob. in Frederick County, MD, died June 9, 1849 in Phelps, Yates, NY. A recent conversation with a relative indicated he was baptised in the Reformed Church under the name Jacob KLEIST. I have been trying for some time to locate his parents. One current possibility is that he was the son of Frederick CLISE of Frederick County, MD. There is a son Jacob listed in Frederick's will, however I have found no other information which could connect him.
Would like to correspond with anyone researching KLEIST families in Maryland.
