Modestus Anthony "Des" Kline
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 12, 1894
Hastings
Cambria County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jan. 17, 1970
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Government officials misspelled the Kline name on official documents in Cambria, Co.; so Des used the spelling Kline during his lifetime. However he and other family members chose to be buried together and use the correct spelling Klein on their tombstones.

Des was born in Hastings but grew up on the family owned and operated coal mine and farm. He said as a teenager: "He dug coal by day and went dancing at night. He met Alma at a dance and courted her by horse and buggy. They were married in Cumberland, MD on 13 January 1915. Witnesses were Andy and Catherine Flick.
