    Jonas Cline was born 21 June 1760 in Rochester, New York and enlisted from Ulster County in 1780. He went to Fulton County, Illinois where he died 20 Jul 1840 and is buried somewhere in Fulton County, Illinois in a private cemetery (Abstracts of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol 1, Serial: 7324: V.. 14) Jonas actually served 4 times for a total of 16 months as a private, R 2049.
    Jonas' mother was Margareta Kleyn born 3 July 1739 in New Hurley in Shawangunk, Ulster County, New York, the name of his father is unknown, he was likely born illegitimately and legally took his mother's maiden name.
    Jonas Cline, a private, entered service as a volunteer in the Militia or State Troops in the year 1780 under Col. John Johnson in the State of New York in the County of Ulster, serving 4 months under Col. Johnson. He was discharged verbally by his commanding officer after his 4 month term but never received any written discharge from his office, but did receive a certificate for his discharge. Unfortunately he sold his certificate to speculators who were in the habit of buying these soldiers' certificates at the time.
    In August, September, October and November of 1780 he rejoined the First Company of Col. Weisenfelt's Regiment of Troops commanded by Capt. Goodwin. He also re-enlisted on the first day of August 1781 from New York and was mustered at Newburgh on the North River in New York. At this time he marched with said company to about 5 miles from Newburgh called Fish Kill in New York, commanded by Captain Goodwin and joined the Regiment lying at that time at Fish Kill.
    After 2 weeks they marched to West Points and laid there for a few days under Capt. Goodwin, Capt. Brewster and Capt. White's companies. From here they were ordered to a Station up the North River called Albany in New York in September of 1781. They later were ordered to march to Johnstown in New York where they remained for about 2-3 weeks and from there marched to Saratoga where they remained for the rest of their 4 months of service.
    An Interrogation of Jonas Cline is included in his military file giving his birth as 21 June 1760 in Rochester, Ulster County, New York. He had no record of his age and had only information from his father's record, which he no longer had because he lost it.
    According to his interrogation papers he entered the Service in the Spring of 1789 from Ulster near Kingston in New York. He lived since the Rev. War in the State of New York until around the year 1805 when he lived in Wayne and Beaver County in Pennsylvania until 1817. He then moved in the State of Ohio into Richland County, Montgomery Township, and from there moved to Fulton County, Illinois where he applied for a transfer from Ohio on 18 March 1839, shortly before he died 20 July 1840.
    Jonas Cline and Catherine "Caty" Roosa, his wife, had the following children:
    Margaret Cline b. 11-11-1788
    Elizabeth Cline b. 1-20-1790
    Rachael Cline b. 3-31-1795
    Benj. Cline b. 11-1-1797
    Sarah Cline b. 2-5-1800
    Mary Cline b. 1-31-1802
    (Note: there is another child, Catherina born 15 Jan 1793, who is not listed. She may have died before this interrogation)
    Note: from Sherry Cornelius, a descendant:
    Mary Cline, dau of Jonas Cline & Caty Roosa, married John Black of Ohio, they had a daughter Sarah Ann Black who married James Madison Milhouse (this was James' 3rd and last wife). James Madison Milhouse had a son, William Henry Milhouse who md. Alice Jane Snyder and they had my grandfather Stanley Milhouse who married Ella Hazel Stivers. Each direct generation that I descend from are buried in the Shiloh/Bridgeport Cemetery in Bridgeport, Illinois except for Jonas Cline and his wife Catherine "Caty" Roosa Cline and their son-in-law John Black, husband of Mary Cline Black. John Black is buried in the Springhill Cemetery just down the road from the Shiloh/Bridgeport Cemetery and his wife Mary Cline is buried in the Bridgeport/Shiloh Cemetery.
    (Note: Jonas gives his birth date at 1760 saying he lost his fathers papers. It is doubtful he knew his father and that may have been a way to lie about his age to join up. Other sources give this date as 1765, which if his wife was born in 1766 is more likely to be correct)
