    George Cline, Sr., was born ca. 1762 in Mecklenburg County, N.C., Married
    ca.1785 to Maria (called Mary) Misenheimer, born 22 Apr. 1763, died 8
    Feb. 1859, daughter of Johann Jakob and Margaretha Misenheimer, who had
    moved their family to N.C. about 1775, or earlier, since in October of
    that year Jakob obtained 170 acres of land from his neighbors, Michael
    and Catherine Cline on Adams Creek.
    Much of the history of those early pioneer days was preserved for us by
    Mary, as she told of the early days of her life to her great-grandsons in
    the 1850s. Her memory was still clear when she was in her nineties and
    ran back to her girlhood in Pa.
    Since she spent most of her time sitting beside the big fireplace
    knitting during the years she lived in the home of her grandson, Wiley
    Cline, the boys affectionately called her "Knitting Granny". A
    grandmother ofthe boys also lived at the home did the housework and
    cooking so the boys found a name for her--"kitchen Granny".
    It was fascinating to these boys to have "Knitting Granny" sit by the
    fire on winter nights and tell them of things that were going on back in
    the days of George Washington and of the old colonial days before our
    country came into being.
    When they left Pa., Maria was large enough to ride horseback and she told
    of the wagon train trip from Berks County, (near Reading), across the
    Susquehenna River and down through Virginia. Most of the time she rode
    horseback on the long journey.
    During the Revolution War, several of Mary's brothers, as well as their
    Blackwelder cousins, who wereneighbors, enlisted in the army and went
    off to Cowpens to meet the wing of the British army in the Battle of
    Cowpens, in which our troops were defeated. According to her version,
    when the order to retreat was given, her long-legged brothers and cousins
    didn't take time to run around the scrub pine trees at the battlefield,
    but straddled over the top of them. However, many of men were captured
    and taken to the British prison at Camden, S.C. Their relatives and
    friends made trips to visit the "boys" while prisoners, making the long
    trip on horseback or in buggies or wagons. An epidemic of smallpox broke
    out among theprison inmates, many of whom died. Some of the vistors also
    contacted the dread disease.
    George and Mary lived on the part of the farm willed to him by his
    father, Michael Cline, about 4 miles east of Concord on the old Gold Hill
    road. This farm remained in the Cline families through six generations,
    the lastof its owners being Ralph Cline. He sold it about 1965. George
    died in the late 1840s and Mary on 8 Feb. 1859, according to her marker
    in the cemetery of St. John's Lutheran Church, six miles east of Concord.
    The grave of George has no marker at present, if it ever had one.
