Christopher's correct name is Christoph Rissling. The Americanized name is what is on this memorial.

Christopher was born in Prussia, possibly in what is now Saxony, Germany. He immigrated to Pennsylvania in about 1856 with his wife Sophia (Lehr) and 3 children, Christopher, August and Doretta (Dora). His youngest child Mary was born in Pennsylvania. The family then moved to Missouri where Sophia died. At the time of Sophia's death their son's had already moved to Colorado. After her death, between 1880 and 1883, Christoph moved with their daughters to Colorado.

Christopher was originally buried in Clear Creek County, Colorado. His son, Christopher, had his remains moved to the Granite Cemetery in Chaffee County, Colorado.

Christopher is my great great grandfather. -Rebecca Boardman
