I am looking for genealogy information on the John Christian family. John Christian was born 1792 VA. John Christian's wife was Amy or Ann. He may have also been married to a Delinda Wallace.

His children were as follows:

Lucinda b. 1822 SC, William W b. 1822 SC, James b. 1823 SC, Mary b. 1833 AL, John b. 1836 AL, Caroline b. 1840 AL, Louisa A b. 1842 AL, Pertamy b. 1852 AL, and Thomas W. b. 1853 AL.

In 1850 census sons James and William Christian are both living and working in Washington, Pontotoc, Mississippi, with a John Washington b. 1806 SC living in their household in Pontotoc county. John Washington had come from Alabama and had 3 daughters: Martha b. 1834 AL, Mary b. 1837 AL and Susan b. 1844 AL.

Also in 1860 census I find John Christian living in Eastern Division, Walker, Alabama.

Finally in 1850 census I find John Christian living in District 2, Tuscaloosa, Alabama with a Leachy Washington in the household age 4 born AL.

I always thought that my Washington family were related to John Washington who was found in the Christian brothers household in Pontotoc, MS in 1850 but I never could prove this (My George Washington b. 1821 family arrived about 1858 in the Pontotoc MS area from Coosa/Elmore Cos. AL). But now we have a 25/25 YDNA test match to the Christian surname, specifically Matthew Campbell Christian b. 1772 Augusta Co., VA; died 1853 Union Co., KY.

So I am trying to connect Matthew Campbell Christian and John Christian. I've learned that both of these Christian families have ties to the 1700s Robertson family.

I know this is a long shot but any clues would be welcomed.I'm trying to connect the above Christians and Washingtons.

Thank you
