CLINE, KAYLOR, KLEIN, KYLER, MALICK, MELLICK posted by Peggy Corrie on Tuesday, September 1, 1998

KYLER possible other spellings, perhaps with a C instead of K. My ggrandfather, J. (John/Jacob called by both) Henry KYLER; his d cert states: "b 6/14/1850, he d 12/14/1914 at Cassville (Huntingdon Co) PA; his parents (bel both b in PA) as Polly and Benjamin". There was no maiden name for Polly, and no place of b for J. Henry. J. Henry's oldest son, (my grandfather) was Benjamin Willis Kyler. A family Bible gives: J Henry b 6/14/1848. Was he a desc of the first KYLER to now Clearfield Co PA ? Looking at census records there are several (in PA) Benjamin KYLER's with sons the right age ? I would appreciate any hints to find parents of J. Henry. I will gladly share! I do have further back on other lines. My info is on paper, will need your PO mail address. Please contact me: Peggy Corrie, 25 Sycamore Ct. W., Homosassa, FL 34446 or e-mail at tlcorrie@citrus.infi.net Could he have been b in Bedford, Cameron, Elk, Fulton, Cambria, Centre, Cumberland, Juniata, Mifflin or Somerset or ?? Co in PA ? Or was he b in another state ?? Could he be desc from Araminta (MALICK/MELLICK or CLINE/KLEIN) and Benjamin KAYLOR/KYLER of Shiloh, OH (there in mid 1800) ?? Thanks so much for any hints to help me, Peggy
