The Trafalgar Township Historical Society has a very large print chart (with map features) showing the geneology of the Cline family which can be consulted. It was prepared in 1973 by Malcolm Cameron Cline.

The family surname in Trafalgar Township was "Cline" but researchers should also check "Kleyn", "Klein", "Klin", "Cleyne" and other variations.
Inscriptions
The Emily Cline Farmhouse
In recognition of the farmhouse which once stood facing Dundas Street on this property at Lot 20 Concession 1 NDS, approximately 350 metres to the southwest of this village square. The farmhouse was a mid-19th century vernacular frame house built in a saltbox form with Georgian influences. It was demolished in 2010.

The property was owned for many decades by Emily Cline (nee Williams) who inherited the property from Charles Pettit Biggar, the father of her first husband, Charles Henry Biggar. Emily continued to live on the property with her second and third husbands, James Freeman and Hiram Cline. Emily is buried in Munn's Cemetery along with her three husbands and several of their children.
