Hello, Steven. A contact of mine sent me this history of the Frederick Schleiffe (b Abt. 1750 Germany - d Aug 1816 Greensburg, Westmoreland, PA - m. Abt. 1782 PA) line a few years back.At the time, I thought my ancestors plugged in somewhere, but that doesn't seem to be the case - at least not that I can discover.Frederick Schleiffe is believed to have been the Frederick Schleiffe who entered the US on May 31, 1773 on the brigantine "Dolphin".Frederick served in the Revolutionary War from Cumberland County, PA.He warranted land in Westmoreland County in 1786, apparently having been on that land for some time. His wife, Anna Maria (b Abt. 1745), is reported to have been the widow of John Adam Kline.At least three of the Kline children were with Anna Maria, but the others may have been with a former wife of John Adam Kline.Anna Maria died 10 May 1818in Greensburg, Westmoreland, PA, at age 73. Frederick and Anna Maria had at least TWO KNOWN sons at the time Frederick's will was written in 1816: HENRY of Ohio and FEDERICK who was living in Westmoreland County, PA.
