Re: My Christ line 1654 - 1901

Addam Christ was the spouse of Rebecka Taylor, daughter of Edward Taylor and (possibly) Nancy Newton. Rebecka (Taylor) Christ was born ca. 1847-1848 in (possibly Fallowfield, Greenwood twp.) Crawford County, PA.

I'm sorry that I don't have any more information about the Addam/Adam Christ/Crist family. I am descended from Rebecka's eldest brother, Newton Roswell Taylor (b. 9 July 1834, Crawford Co., Pa, d. 28 March 1915, Pittsburgh, PA), my 2nd great grandfather.

Rebecka (Taylor) Christ, along with three of her sisters, e.g., Eliza Ann Taylor m. Christopher Smock; Abigail Taylor m. Theophilus Peterson; and Polly Taylor m. David Powell, sold their interest in a piece of property to their brother, Newton R. Taylor.

Their eldest sister, Phoebe Taylor (m. Ragan Peterson) was not included in the sale of the land.

If you have any information about Rebecka (Taylor) Christ's maternal side of the family, I would appreciate it very much. From what little I have been able to gather, she was probably Nancy Newton, daughter of Charles (?) Newton. Nancy Taylor is listed in the 1880 Census of Jefferson Co., PA with her son Newton R. Taylor. She is buried in Pisgah Cemetery, Jefferson Co., PA.

Rebecka (Taylor) Christ's father was Edward Taylor, b. 1805 - 1810, probably Crawford co., PA, d. ca. 1847, Fallowfield, Greenwood twp., Crawford co., PA. Edward was possibly the son of Jonathan Taylor/Tailor and Elizabeth (Williams) Taylor/Tailor.

Hope this helps someone!
