Christian Angney (*As name is spelled on his tombstone.)eldest son of the children of Dewalt and his first wife, believed [by this writer (LWJ) & (CRS)] to have been Catherina _______________was born December 25, 1749, and christened in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, at the Jonestown Reformed Church, on December 23, 1750. He married first Elisabetha Shaver, daughter of George Shaver, of Washington County, Maryland, who was born July 14, 1748; and died in Somerset County, Pa., in 1816, where she is buried on the original Christian Angney farm, now referred to as the Derencin Farm. Her father died in 1796, and left a will which is recorded in Hagerstown, Md., in which he named his son Paul and his son-in-law Christian as Executors. It is also known, from the Will of Conrad Miller, of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania., that George Shaver was married to a daughter of Miller. Christian married again on April 7, 1817, this time to Mary (Polly)Kooser, a sister of John and Jacob S. Kooser, and of Catherine wife of Conrad Shultz, all prominent citizens of Somerset County, Pa. He died in Westmoreland County, Pa., (Donegal Township) on March 17, 1824, and is buried in the Brant's Cemetery, about two miles South of Ligonier, off the West side of Route 711, and near Slater Road. *His name is spelled Angney on the grave marker, and this is the way it is spelled in other instances. His Estate was settled with his Executors being Christian Ankeny, Jr., and Conrad Shultz. It was probated in both Somerset and Westmoreland Counties. His second wife died in 1847, and her Estate was settled by her nephew David Shultz. She left no children, and the place of interment is not known.
