My uncle traced my family back about 3 or four generations and came up with a Christopher who had two families of children. One in England and one in America. We do not know in which order these two families were started. We do know that he went to America to live with a family after being in England and having children. We do not know whether the family in America already existed before he had his children in England.
This Christopher lived in the mid to late 1800's as far as I can remember. I do not have the documentation at present. I don't know whether any one else in my immediate family has it. I will find out and post more on this if I am able.
