I posted the following in November 2006, I have since learned that some of this information is not correct: "The only Christian Musser I find in my Mother's information was born 19 February 1761 and died 30 June 1840. He was married to a Mary Catherine Huffman abt 1783.
They had a son named Christopher Musser born March 1799 died 25 July 1871 in Holiday, IL. I understand he ran a general store there.
This Christopher Musser and Mary Polly Abrams Musser had a son Jacob Musser born 1828 died 1861.
This Jacob Musser married Priscilla Carpenter Musser and they had a son a Christopher Columber Musser born 16 February 1860 died 4 June 1914 in Illinois.
This Christopher Columbus Musser and wife Cora Cutler Musser had sons, one of whom was named Jacob William Musser, he is my maternal grandfather."
The incorrect sentence is: This Christopher Musser and Mary Polly Abrams Musser had a son Jacob Musser born 1828 died 1861.
It should read "This Christopher Musser and Mary Polly HUFFMAN had a son Jacob Musser born 1828 died 31 December 1862." My apologies for this error which I perpetuated from an online family tree.
