George W. Christian, First-born son of Daniel and Christianna (Ansbarger) Christian, was already a grown man when his parents moved from Maryland to Illinois. As such, he undoubtedly assumed many responsibilities along the way-forerunner to the time when he would migrate with his own wife and children to Texas.
County histories mention civic posts he accepted during his fifteen-year stay in Carroll County. George Chrsitian was a petit juror for the first Carroll County Court held in Savanna in September 1839 term. No specific details of his duties while juror and county treasurer are given in the accounts, however. It was George W. Christian who donated the land upon which the Carroll County Courthouse was built. A ten-acre parcel donated was auctioned off 20 November 1843 for the city of Mt. Carroll.
In 1852 the family traveled to Texas in covered wagons from their home in Mt. Carroll County, Illinois and settled in Pleasant Grove near the Compton Family. (bio by: Nell)
