He married Rosetta Luse, the daughter of Aaron and Martha Smith Luse, on 27 Jan 1859 in Appanoose Co., Iowa. This union was blessed with three children, Genora 1860, Martha in 1862 and John McClellan in 1863.

John answered the call of his country by enlisting in the Union Army at Monravia, Iowa on 9 Aug 1862 at age 25. He served as a Pvt., in Company "G" 36th Infantry Regiment Iowa Volunteers. His unit numbers, 211, were bore on the blue flag. On 20 Dec 1862 John died from disease while being trained to fight in the Civil War at Benton Barracks in St. Louis, Missouri.

John's father, Bennet Cline, and brother William and Simeon T. Cline also served in this war as well as brother-in-law Henry Clay Graham. His father's unit arrived at Benton Barracks on 1 Jan 1863.
