Re: Berks Co., PA Christ

I am looking for info. on the parents of Carl/Charles Christ, b. in Reading, Berks Co., PA July 30, 1799, parents listed as John and Elizabeth Christ. Charles was baptised at Trinity Lutheran Church in Reading on July 13, 1800. His mother may have been ELizabeth FRITSCH from Longswamp, Berks Co. who married a Johannes Christ there on 12/30/1794. Also, an Elizabeth Christ died in Schuylkill Haven in 1848 and her death notice refers to her husband John Christ deceased - one time sheriff of Schuylkill CO. There was a John Christ listed as a sheriff and held other offices in Reading in the late 1700's. Schuylkill Co. broke off from Berks Co. abt. 1815.
Charles Christ married Anna Conner in the Orwigsburg area of Schuylkill Co. abt. 1821. Problem is that there may have been more than one John and Elizabeth Christ family in Reading in the late 1700 timeframe in Reading! Kathleen
