Douglas, Although I can't tell you who Christians Parents were, I do know my Ancestor Jacob Sain Sinift was born in 1799, Maryland, probably Washington County, where the Senft/Senift/Sinniff/Sinift family was living in 1790. Information I have read, ndicates Jacob Senift Sr B abt. 1776, married Catherine Sain (daughter of Philip Sain) and the couple in 1799, had Jacob Sain Senift. the Senifts and other families some being the Kinnards/Kennards, Househlders moved before 1805 to the Fairfield Co., Ohio,to an area that later became Perry County, Ohio, they had more children and lived their lives there. I suspect Christian was the nephew of Jacob and Catherine Sain Senift. The Senft family was originally from York, Pa., and Jacob Sr is believed to be the son of Philip and Magdelena Senft, Philip Senft being the son of Johan Phillip and Anna Mary Bens Senft.
h Catherine Sain Senift. Do you know what the middle initial K. stands for ??
