In checking the Crist forum messages, I found an intriguing reference to a Margaret Overturf of Bracken KY who married a John Crist.
I have a ggggrandfather John Crist who was living in Lewis Twp of Brown Co. Ohio in 1850, but have wondered who his wife was and the mother of my gggrandmother Amanda (Crist) Caldwell.
As part of Bracken Co. lies just across the Ohio River from Lewis Twp, I wondered if this could be the woman I've been looking for?
Also interesting is the group of Overturfs also living in Lewis Twp Brown Co in 1850 not far from the Crists.A David Waggoner lives next to the Overturfs and has two older women living in his household--a Nancy Overturf, 73, and a Susan Acle, 73. Later, in 1857, I believe the same David Wagner (sic) is named in the will of Frederick Crist, who died in Cape Girardeau Co. MO.
Would appreciate any help in untangling this Crist/Overturf/Acle/Waggoner connection.
