I found my Christian Phares s/o Christian Phares and Nancy Campbell. I find his parents in 1870 in Montgomery Co. Clay Twp., with Thomas (spouse Jane and 5 children) along with a John W.aged 20, and a Lucy Phares aged 8 listed with a Lucy Johnson. My Christian is listed in Montgomery County, OH, 1850 as Cristopher Farris aged 14, along with his parents Cristopher and Nancy Farris. He had a brother mentioned in this census as Thomas, aged 16, b OH. Also in Montgomery Co. Perry Twp 1850 is a James Fariss , Thomas, William and another William Farris family. I find my Phares family in Montgomery Co. OH as early as 1840, with nine children. They were not listed in this county in 1830. 1860 Montgomery Co. Perry Twp., lists Christian Phares and spouse Nancy, a James Phares and spouse Grace, an Edward Phares aged 32 with spouse Clementine and a William Phares aged 40, with spouse Sarah E.
