Her name also appears as Klein or Kline. Some sources have George Clontz listed as John George Clontz. Others list him as Michael George, like one of his sons.
Chloe was the eighth child born to Jacob and Catherine Cline. Only six survived childhood.
George and his brother Jeremias and their familes all lived in a large German settlement at Second Creek, site of the Organ Lutheran Church which was in Rowan Co. in 1756 before Mecklenburg Co. was created from Anson Co. in 1762 (Map). Surnames there were spelled differently in many records during late 1700's; Clonts, Glantz, Glance, Glaunce, etc.
In 1796, husband George bought 100 acres in Cabarrus Co NC from Chloe's father, Jacob Cline. George sold the land to John Clonts on Sep 14, 1801. They moved to Burke Co in 1802 and were there until 1810 (Census), then they moved to Buncombe Co.
