Hello Preston:
You guessed right. If your name is Rhyne and you have ancestors in N.C. ,then you are descended from Hans Martiin Reinau who brought his family from Blankenloch Germany in 1738 to York County Pa. There the two sons grew up and married and had children of their own. Son, Martin 2nd was recorded as RHEIN and son Jacob was recorded as REIN.
Jacob Rein brought his family to Lincoln Co.(now Gaston) about 1762. Martin`s widow and her sons Thomas and Jacob Rhein came to N.C. about the same time. Soon after , they were all known as RHYNE.
If you cane trace your family tree back a few generations, we can connect you to the rest of your ancestors. That should be fun.
Hope this is not to late for your school project.

Howard Rhyne, Historian for the Rhyne Family
