The following was posted 12/98 by Carole Brace :

[In the book "Old Families of Randolph County, Missouri", the children of George and Louisa (Terrill) Christian were listed (by submitter Marie Christian) as: Paul, James, Will, Ben, Bob, Ernest, Mary, Ela, and Walter all born in Missouri, and Tom, born in Texas. The Inez Christian Doshier you mentioned claims there were three additional children: John B. born April 24, 1802, died February 19, 1803; Robert Sutton, born November 30, 1806; Gusteavers Bower, born July 2, 1824.

According to the book the founder of the Christian family in America was Thomas Christian, born 1635. His grandson, John Christian, married Judith Pate and served in the Virginia Regiment in the Revolutionary War. In 1787 the familly moved to Kentucky. John Christian lived there until his death in Lexington KY Jan 20, 1792. The book indicates that Robert S. Christian and his brother Paul Christian (presumably the sons of John Christian) came to Randolph County some time before 1820. Paul Christian was born in Virginia
Oct 16, 1772 and was married in Kentucky May 2, 1799 to Mary King (Polly) Sutton, daughter of Robert and Caroline Coleman Sutton of Virginia. They had a large family born in Kentucky that they brought with them to Randolph County. They settled near Higbee. One of their children was William Sutton born Feb 2, 1817 died in 1891 and he married Mary Elizabeth Terrill.

There is more on the Christian family in the book. It is about 4 pages and I wasnt sure if it was legal to post the whole thing here. The entry does talk quite a bit about George Richard "Rit" Christian. He went with a group of people from Randolph County in a wagon train to California during the Gold Rush. He served under Generals Price and Shelby in the Missouri Cavalry during the Civil War. The family migrated to Texas in 1880. They stayed in Denton County for a year then settled on the West Fork of Trinity River on a ranch in Jack County. Rit died Jan 17, 1909. Louisa died March 21, 1904 and both are buried in the cemetery at Antelope, Texas.]

"After they migrated to Texas, Louisa resumed teaching, even after her older sons had gone west to the Panhandle of TX as cowhands. She and Rit left hard times in MO only to find them again on the TX frontier, so "Lou" gathered together a group of youngsters and taught them in her home. Her great Baptist faith was known all over Jack Co., and she was known as "Aunt "Lou" far and wide. Their children were: Paul, James, Will, Ben, Bob, Ernest, Mary, Ela, and Walter, all born in MO, and Tom, born in TX. Walter died young after coming to TX.
