Below, photos give you a brief look at the Cline family's proud heritage in the Capay Valley.
In the spring of 1894 John Cline came to the Capay Valley from Dog Creek in Shasta County, California. He was an animal trapper and a cowboy. He was Scottish and Wintu Indian.

Wilbur in Guinda corrals.
Wilbur met his wife Lila Duncan at the Grange Hall in Guinda. They were teenagers at a Grange Hall dance. Lila was always proud to say "He left his date for me."

Wyatt had one son, also named Wyatt. Here they are at almond harvest time.

Wyatt junior had one son, named Steven. Here is Steven with great grandpa Wilbur in the hills together. Deer season.
Here are my great grandparents Wilbur and Lila as I remember them. Tough, hardworking hill folk. Happy together for so many years. I'm Steven Wyatt Cline. I built this website for my dad, Wyatt, and the Guinda Corner Store. I know Wyatt is proud to be here in the valley where he grew up, and we are both thankful for this Guinda community who has supported us since the day we opened. You may have seen us here at the store, and if you haven't yet, 'mon in.
