KLEIN, KLINE posted by Sue Fry on Tuesday, February 1, 2000

I've mailed several requests, but maybe it's been lost. I am seeking information on John and Elizabeth Klein of Randolph. They immigrated to Randolph from Germany in 1832 with their son Adam (b. 1/12/1832 in GER). John died in 1888 and Elizabeth in 1841. The family were farmers. I would like to find information on other children of John and Elizabeth Klein. I believe my great grandmother, Anna Mary Klein Neff (b. 1836 in Randolph, d. 1907 in Akron) was the daughter of John and Elizabeth and sister to Adam. The homestead of Adam and his son's (and perhaps began as John and Eliz. homestead also) was on Ranfield Rd. Any written information or copies ofphotos would be appreciated.
