In the June 2005 issue of ANTIQUES magazine on p. 63 there is an excellent advertisement picturing a pension payment document, dated 1787 & signed by Benjamin Franklin, authorizing a pension payment to Adam Christ, Rev. War soldier.

I have scanned this document in case any of Adam's descendants might like a copy. Someone in the Christ family ought to have it--it is too good to be missed by the family. This is a magnificent piece of historical documentation relating Adam Christ to Benjamin Franklin.

My email address may be found by clicking on my highlighted name above. If you want a copy, either by email or by postal mail, please email me directly because I may not see your request if it is posted on this board.

If it were a document for a member of the Pease family, I'd certainly want someone to do the same for me.
