Joel Christie, died 26 Sep 1857 in his 68th year, and his wife Mary G. or C. Christie, are buried in the Christie - Young Cemetery in Ross County, Ohio. See the free Find A Grave web site.Joel was possibly in the War of 1812. (A Joel from Ohio, appears on that list.) He had a son, Samuel Christie, who died in the Civil War, buried in the same cemetery.There are six Christie people totally in that cemetery. It's an abandoned cemetery, so family members ought to take a look at it and clean it up, before the tombstones are no longer visible. We still need pictures of the tombstones for that web site.
I suspect Joel and Mary were the parents of George Christie, born 10 May 1828 in Ross County, Ohio,also mentioned in a Genforum message below.
