I have also found a Christian G. Tatch in Bristol County, MA m. to Lydia A. Jenney.They had a son Rufus J., born 1844.Christian was also a mariner, and might be a brother to John N. Tatch above.
I would like to exchange any information on the Tatch Family.I'm also curious to find if the "Tatsch" lineage is any relation to my Tatch line. Any info is much appreciated.
