Additional Information Posted:
"Jacob Conrad Edelman
(1835-1918)
Prisoner of War

"Born in Rainrod, Vogelsberg, Germany, in 1835, Jacob immigrated to the US in 1847 and eventually settled in what was to become West Virginia.

"His family in Germany was of high nobility, which came about from the procurement of the tremendous fortune resulting from the manufacture of nails.

"From the start of the Civil War in 1861, he worked on a steamboat and used a local mill to grind grain for Confederate soldiers.

"In 1863 he was arrested by Union soldiers for aiding the Confederacy and imprisoned at Brownstown (now Marmet), W. Va. His case was appealed and he was eventually released on the grounds of foreign protection, since he was not a naturalized citizen and thus did not hold loyalties to either side.

"After the war he became a US citizen, an engineer, school trustee, postmaster, land agent, County Commissioner, a member and later president of the Boone County Court, and was elected to the state legislature and served two terms as a member of the House of Delegates.

"He died in 1918 and is buried at Drawdy Cemetery in Boone County, West Virginia.

"Obituary:
JACOB EDELMAN DIED AT THE AGE OF 84 YEARS. WAS ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN MEN IN BOONE COUNTY AND HAD RENOUNCED ALLEGIANCE TO GERMANY.

"J.C. EDELMAN, one of the best known men in Boone county died at his home in Peytona last week at the age of 84 years. He was well known among the elder inhabitants of Charleston and was a frequent visitor to the city up to about a year ago since which time his health failed gradually until his death. He suffered from complications incident to advanced age.

"Although a native of Germany, Mr. Edelman renounced his allegiance to the Government of the Fatherland early in life and his loyalty to the United States has never since she declared war on the country of his nativity, been questioned. He often expressed a wish in the days of his declining health, that he might be spared to see American arms triumph over Prussian militarism.

"JACOB CONRAD EDELMAN was born in Bavaria, May 8, 1835 and emigrated to the United States in 1847 when he was twelve years of age. He first settled in Maryland and after living there for two years he moved to North Carolina. Seven years later he came to West Virginia to make his home. Mr. Edelman was one of the most influential men in Boone County politics in his earlier life. He served two terms as the representative of that county in the House of Delegates in the nineties. Previous to that time he was Country Commissioner and held other offices of trust. He was a lifelong Democrat.

"Besides his wife, Mr. Edelman is survived by three sons, Jacob C. Edelman, Jr. of Winifrede, J. G. Edelman of Peytona and John Edelman of Cannelton. Three daughters, Mrs. Robert Smith of St. Albans, Mrs. W. J. Bolin of Montgomery and Mrs. Lewis Long of Peytona. J.C. Edelman Born May 8, 1835 Died May 17, 1918

" ALDERSON AND AMANDA CLINE
Alderson Cline was born on Sept. 15, 1853 in
Wyoming County, Wrginia, the son of James A. Cline and
Elizabeth Bailey and the grandson of Michael Cline and
Margaret “Peggy” Jones. He married Amanda Cline in
1874, the daughter, of Michael Cline Jr. and Tazzie Bailey
and the granddaughter of Michael Cline and Margaret
Bailey. Amanda’s grandfather and Alderson’s grandfa-
ther were two different Michael Clines, but they were
closely related. However, their common maternal grand-
parents were Archibald Bailey and Nancy Agnes Godfrey.
"Both Alderson and Amandawere descendants of Ger-
man immigrants, who served in the Revolutionary War
and subsequently settled in Virginia in a region that was
included in the formation of Montgomery County in 1777.
Virtually all the Clines in the southern counties ofWest
Virginia are descendants from the ancestors and off-
spring of Alderson and Amanda Cline.
"The early families of Baileys, Blankenships, Lamberts,
Lesters, Lockharts Johnsons, Justices, Vances and many
others had mam'ed Clines that were closely related to the
family of Alderson and Amanda. By the late 18005 most of
the inhabitants of the westernmost region of the county
were on a branch of the Cline family tree. The Clines
were so dominant in the region that it was not uncom—
mon for the young Cline people to marry someone who
was also a Cline. As my great aunt Lucy used to say,
“Who else are we going to marry ?“
"Alderson and Amanda were the parents of 10 chil»
dren: Anderson,1872 (died in childhood); Judson, 1876,
married Elizabeth Stacy; Isabelle, 1876, married George
Hurley; Lee, 1878, married Vicie Lester; Elijah, 1881, mar-
ried Buna Cline; Thursa, 1883, married Michael Lee; An-
thony, 1885, married Lenora—; Matilda, 1886, married
Walter Johnson and Lucy, 1888, married Lawyer Cline.
"At the present time over 300 descendants have re»
sulted from the union of, Alderson and Amanda Cline.
These descendants have included lumbermen, educa-
tors, business owners, doctors and professionals in al—
most every field of human endeavour, from coal miners
to rocket engineers, who live and work in almost every
state in the country. Buta large number of them continue
to work and enjoy the life that is to be found in the south-
ern counties of West Wrginia.
