Kleist Family Genealogy Forum
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.
