George Clise or Kleist 17-1800 Germany -MD

My mother was a clise from Allegany Co. MD, I have traced the family back to a George Clise, who supposedly had two brothers,John and Frederick, all three of whom came from Germany, sometime in the late 1700's or early 1800's. Somewhere the name was changed to Clise from Kleist or Von Kleist. If you have any info on these three brothers, or the town they came from in Germany, I'd appreciate any help.
