Birth: 1804
Somerset County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Oct. 19, 1898
Woodbury County
Iowa, USA

Christopher was born in Pennsylvania. There are several family trees that show his parents as Jeremiah and Mary Unknown of Knox County, Ohio. Christopher lived in Richland County on or before 1830. Richland County and Knox County border each other. The parentage of Christopher has not been 100% proven.
Christopher married Eliza Shields either in Pennsylvania or Ohio. Christopher and Eliza had at least 9 children. In 1853 he moved to Cedar County, Iowa, purchasing land from the US Government. Eliza died in 1865 and he remarried in 1871 to Johanna McGrew Taylor. Christopher was a farmer all of his working life, first in Ohio, then Cedar County Iowa and finally in Woodbury County, Iowa. He apparently died without a will as per the attached news clipping.
