Streit Family Genealogy Forum
I am seeking descendants of Christian Streit. Christian was the son of John Leonard Streit and was born in Somerset County, PA, on June 7, 1749, died in Winchester, VA on March 10, 1812. He was among the first half-dozen native-born Lutheran preachers in America. From 1785 until his death, he served as the first resident pastor of the Lutheran Church in Winchester, VA. He tended to the spiritual needs of people throughout the area and up and down the Shendandoah Valley. He married 3 times and had 16 children, several of whom died in infancy. Rev. Christian Streit was buried inside the Lutheran Church in Winchester. A tombstone erected to his memory is located within the Mt. Hebron Cemetery on land that still belongs to the Congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. I would like to connect with persons who can prove their direct-line descendancy to this reknown man. Descendants may contact me at email@example.com if preferable. Thank you.
