States: Texas: Nolan
Looking for members of the CLINE family that might assist me. My aunt, Edah MELTON, married Royal C. CLINE about 1922/23. Place unknown. Family legend claims he was a school teacher in Fannin County, Texas. Not proven. He entered the Federal Prison System in 1931 as a Federal Guard. He was a Federal guard at Alcatraz Island. He was brutally bludgeoned to death in an attemptd prison escape by inmates in May 1938. San Francisco Chronicles states that his body was returned to Sweetwater, Texas, his childhood home for burial. He is buried in Sweetwater Cemetery beside his twin son and daughter, Ariel and Burel CLINE, born and died 1925. Royal CLINE was born about 1902. He was survived by four daughters: Tommie, Lucille, Juanita and Beverly. Would like to learn who his parents and siblings were. Edah has passed away and believe that all the daughters are dead now.
