This is what I have on Valentin's family. Jacob Christ (grandfather of Valentin) born 1684 Roggwil, Berne, Switzerland. Arrived in Phil 1733 on ship "Richard & Elizabeth". Wife was Magdalena Schwab.
I only know of one child, Marcus (Johan Marx) born 1714, Moselle, Lorraine, France/Germany. Was killed by Indians in 1756 in Greenwich twp. Wife was Appolonia Maria Haass. I know of two children, Valentin and Anna Margaret.
Valentin, born 1743 died 1813. Born in Mont. co. moved later to Greenwich with parents.
Married Catharine Fischer (b. 1741) and had 5 children that I know of: Johann Jacob, Catharine, Elisabeth, Anna Maria, Daniel.
I descend from Elisabeth Christ wife of Daniel Merkel.
