to join his brother, Gottlieb, who had arrived four years earlier.
On 31 Dec. 1894, Christian married Bertha Spieth Scott, who had been previously married and was raising 3 sons from that marriage.

Eventually, Bertha took the kids and moved to northern California, leaving Christian.
Christian died alone, sitting on a chair, on the front porch of a cabin he rented on the Hagan Ranch, near his brothers winery in Bennett Valley, this according to a Press Democrat article written at the time.
