He is on the 1810 & 1820 census in Montgomery Co.
I descend thru Dr Chris & his 2nd wife Mary Kegley. Their marriage bond is dated 14 Feb 1794 in Mont. County. They had another 8 children (including Philip, their 2nd son which is my line.
Dr Chris was b 16 Nov 1742 in Germany per his tombstone in the Ribble Hubbert Cemetery at the family home Sandy Mound at Tom's Creek, Blacksburg, Mont. Co. 28 Nov 1773 he & his wife Sibella (BArbara in German) from the port of Rotterdam were indentured to George Syphers of Evesham Twp Burlington Co W. Jersey as a servant for 4 years.
