Captain Jacob Cline’s District, 1805

Robert C. Carpenter:

I believe that this company is in present central southern Catawba County and possibly present northern central Lincoln County. The area includes present Newton, Conover, Startown, and possibly Maiden. Many of these people lived on Clarks Creek or its tributaries, on Lyles Creek, and appears to have stretched toward the home of Matthias Peterson, who lived near Killians Settlement Meeting House on Killians Creek. Catawba County’s German roots are evident in the names of its residents. The churches of the settlers were Old St. Paul’s Lutheran and Reformed Church, St. Johns Lutheran and Reformed Church, Salem Lutheran and Reformed Church, and later Haas's Lutheran Church. This large company appears to include most of the third Company of the 1790 Lincoln County census, and may also include a few people from the fifth Company of the 1790 Lincoln County census.

 

The overwhelming majority of the taxables were German. I count only eighteen people who I suspect are not German or for whom I could not make a designation. The number of black polls indicates the existence of small farms. There was one cotton gin, which indicates the production of cotton. A store was operated by the German speaking John Dietz. The company appears to have been reasonably affluent. Many family connections and religious connections characterize persons in this tax list.

 

Kathy Gunter Sullivan:

At 1804 sessions of Lincoln County Court, Mathias Boovy was appointed overseer in Captain Cline’s Company on the road from the company line to Bullinger’s Mill. His responsibilities included keeping Anthony’s bridge over Clarks Creek in good repair. In 1806, John Sigman took his turn as overseer of the same road. Patrols appointed in 1805 were Henry Shell, Jacob Cline, John Ikerd, George Bullinger, and Elias Bost.

 

Complicating our dilemma of lack of tax records for the period 1807-1815, the 1810 Lincoln County censuses pages are a jumbled mess. For example, the correct page order of Cline’s District is:

p. 501. Cline’s Company begins here: Jesse Ashe-John Bolick

p. 500. Cline’s Company: Jean Collins-George Fisher

p. 441. Cline’s Company: Phillip Fry-John Ikert

p. 485. Cline Company: Lourance Ikert-Thomas Puntch

p. 484. Cline’s Company: John Sigman Senr-Cunrad Ward (end of district).
