In Reply to: Adam Christ - PA by Gay Walker of 282

i would love to hear your stories about elizabeth and adam. i have the names of all of elizabeth's siblings, their parents (michael and regina...+ michael's brother jorg jacob), great grandparents jacob jr. and abblona, and great greats jacob and acfalohnia...back to the ship 'friendship' from germany (including a few details such as village names in germany/general dates/indian scares etc...) + other various extended lines on the frantz and smith sides of the family. my christ info ends with adam. perhaps you might help me extend this side of my tree.

here are some specifics which may fill in some blanks you have:

---adam and elizabeth married in telpahocken, burks/berks co. PA

---both buried in harmony cemetery, milton PA

---elizabeth b. december 12, 1752

---military records on adam exist from 1757-1808...he served in 1776 as a private in captain henry christ's 2nd battalion....berks co. rifle regiment under colonel miles...promoted to sergeant in 1777 and was granted a pension on march 3, 1786...

---will book #2 northcumberland county pg. 72-73 appoints son henry, son-in-law john snook and brother-in-law adam follmer as excecutors...bequeathed wife elizabeth 600lbs and other articles...
