After my Mother, Elizabeth Victoria Green, married my Father, Obed Mast Christian, as above related, they built a residence about 400 or 500 yards westwardly from Thompsonville, and resided there until the Fall of 1867, when they moved to Denton Creek in Gonzales County, about 6 miles Northeast from Gonzales, on what is now known as the Gonzales-Waelder Highway, and also a part of the Old Spanish Trail from Houston to San Antonio.
Obed Mast Christian and wife, Elizabeth Victoria Christian, had born unto them twelve children, named as follows: William Willis, born, 1861, and died in infancy; Martha Jane, born March 16, 1862; Amanda Louellen, born December 27, 1865; Lueullus Forrest, born December 3, 1867; Mary East and Laura West (twins) born December 2, 1869; Sarah Dulcenia, born April 10, 1876; Lycurgus Cleburne, born September 5, 1880; Lybertas Green, born November 27, 1882; Bonnie Drucilla, born November 30, 1883. All twelve children, except the three oldest, were born at the old homestead, near Gonzales. The three oldest children were born at Thompsonville. All twelve children, exept the eldest (who died in infancy), are now living. A more complete history of the eleven living children can be found in Volume XV, No. 3, page #56, of William and Mary College (Virginia) Quarterly magazine, issue for January, 1907, by Dr. Lyon G. Tyler, at Williamsburg, Virginia. A copy of this Volume is now in the possession of L.C. Christian, Houston, Texas.
My Mother, Elziabeth Victoria Christian, is now (September 3, 1936) living, and resides at the old Christian homestead near Gonzales, in Gonzales County, Texas. She will be 94 years of age on Saturday, September 19, 1836.
