Hey Leroy,

I still don't have much on this family. I thought I had a lead in looking at census information. I found a Lawrence Kling listed in the 1830 census for Schoharie County, NY. I'm lucky in that there is a good genealogy library that is part of the Houston Public Library system. So, I went down to the Clayton Genealogy Library and did some digging in Schoharie County records. I didn't find a Lawrence Kling. But, I did find a Ludwig Kling and his family. And sometimes his name was listed as Luther Kling...depending on the author. Due to the dates and other information, I was sure that Ludwig and Luther were the same person. I noticed that with some of the records, the person's first name was spelled in the correct German...such as church records. In some county histories, it was an Americanized spelling...such as Luther. I surmised that maybe Lawrence was one such Americanized spelling. And sure enough, there was a Ludwig Kling...there were a few in this line...that could have been my Lawrence. I went to the Schoharie County genweb site and there were a couple of Kling researchers listed there. I contacted them and we traded a couple of emails and I haven't heard back from them. They were going to pass on this information to a cousin that wasn't online. So, I'm still stuck. I'm planning on going to see my family in Indiana and thought about going over to Clark County, IL...its right across the river from Terre Haute and only about an hour or so from my home town. That is where Julia Kling Blockinger died and is buried. I'll let you know if I make it over there and find anything.
