  • The Descendents of Moriz Klein

    I. Moriz Klein
        Moriz was born in Germany. Moriz Klein and his son Jacob came to America on the ship 'Phoenix', landing in Philadelphia on 9/13/1749. Records in the Christ Lutheran Church, Berks County, PA, state that he is the father of Michael Klein, who was married in that church 5/17/1750. Since Michael was born in 1716, it is evident that Moriz was born in the late 1680's or 90's. There are no records of the wife or more family. The 3 known child of Moriz is as follows:

    II. Michael Klein
  •   Jacob Kline
  •   Sebastian Kline  b. 1724   m. Bieber

    II. Michael Kline
        Michael was born in 1716 in Germany and died in 1792 in . He is buried in Cold Water Luthern Cemetary, Cabarris, North Carolina. As a 22 year old man, he came to the US on the ship Charming Nancy, arriving at the port of PA on 11/9/1738. With the other passengers from the ship, they proceeded to the Court House and each signed an oath of allegiance to the British Government. Some of them didn't have the money to pay for their trip and so agreed to be "indentured" to the person who advanced the passage money for them. We don't know if Michael had enough to pay for his trip. Michael proceeded on his way to join the other German immigrants. Since they spoke a different language, the Pennslyvania Dutch community grew. He married Anna Catherine Shuffert on 6/17/1750 in Christ Luthern Church, Berks County, Pennsylvania. She was born on 11/14/1732 in Germany and died 3/11/1798. She is also buried in Cold Water Luthern Cemetary, Cabarris., NC. The Cold Water Church in which they were members, stands only about 1 mile from where their house stood. Catherine came to America when she was about 1 years old with her parents on the ship Richard and Elizabeth, which landed at Philadelphia on September 28, 1733. In the family were George, aged 44, Gertrude age 32, John, 10, and Anna Catherine, 1. The 11 known children of Michael and Catherine are as follows:
