Samuel Christy was Agatha and Julius's youngest child. He was born twelve years later than his nearest sibling. Any doubt that he was their son is erased by Julius' will, wherein Julius refers to "my son Samuel Christy." Samuel was the only child born after the move to the Greenbrier County. It is possible that other children were born who did not live to adulthood.
Samuel was about six years old when the family moved to Kentucky. They lived first in Woodford County, and then their area became Scott County.
In the year 1803 Julius Christy is making new arrangements. He writes his will. He disposes of property, some to Samuel and some to James. I believe it is at this time that he and Agatha move to Clark County Kentucky to live with their son John Christy.
In 1805 Samuel married, on the 11th. of April, Mary "Polly" Day. Polly was a daughter of Truman and Mary Saunders Day. Truman Day was born 11th. February 1864 and died 17th. February 1855. [Transcriber's note: This is obviously an error, but we don't know the correct information. If you do, please send it!!] He served in the 58th. regiment of the Kentucky Militia. His second wife was Catherine Williams. He married Catherine the 30th. of December 1811. Truman Day is buried in Eden Chapel cemetery. His will is recorded in Fleming County Will Book 1, page 481. Mary Saunders Day was a daughter of James Saunders, Sr. and his wife Elizabeth.
Samuel and Polly Day Christy began their married life in Fleming County Kentucky and then they moved to Boone County Kentucky. Samuel was a shoe and boot maker. The family was in Decatur County Indiana in the 1820's an then, briefly, in Clark County Kentucky.
The following Court records provide a bit of a "Paper Trail" of their movements.
