Hi, I just discovered that Klieves is in my ancestry. There is a fellow calling himself John Henry Klieves but it is also listed as Johann on some papers, serving in the military in the 1870's. He was writing letters home to Wheeling West Virginia. I belive he married a girl from Texas with the maiden name of Franzell ?Any connection?? Also he was also writing to someone with the last name Van Cleeve ??Possible name change ?Please write back with more info if you have any. Thanks.
