To the KLEIN - CLINE - CLYNE family researchers:
There are over 2042 postings on this Board as of this
moment. To my surprise the words Hessian soldiers
are only mentioned once, and that in a very general way
by myself some times back. No one took notice.
This is interesting, because in my book I have listed a
total of nine (9) Hessian soldiers named KLEIN, who
have served in Canada and/or U.S.A. during the American
Revolution, and many of them stayed here to settle and
Just for your information I will quote the names as I have
them listed in my book "The Hessians of Quebec", which
is on deposit with many historical and genealogical Societies:
Klein, Adam, Hanau Jaeger, bapt. son 1796 in Montreal.
Klein, Georg, Kassel Regt.RaLL, des. USA 1782.
Klein, Johann Philip, Hanau Artillery, dischargd.1783 Que,
Klein, Johannes, settled in Grimsby, Ont. reel C-1649,
Klein, Johannes, Hanau Free Corps, deserted at N.Y.
Klein, Johannes, Kassel Regt. Seitz, settled Nova Scotia,
Klein, Michael, (Kline), served w. RKKNY, 2.Battl.
Klein, Valentin, Kassel Regt.v.Seitz, settd. 9-Mile Rvr, N.S.
Klein, Wilhelm, Kassel Grenadier, settled Nova Scotia.
Klyn, George, see Klein, Georg.
Of the last one, KLEIN/KLYN, George, we know that he
came to Ontarion with wife, 4 sons and 2 daughters,
into the District of Niagara from Lancaster County, PA.,
and settled in Bertie Ts.
I have no personal interest in the name of Klein, has not
shown up in my or my wife's Ahnentafel.
