Mennonite Andrew Kauffman of Manor Township also had a daughter Anna who
married, first, Jacob Crist (1732 immigrant on the Ship Samuel). Jacob and
Anna [Kauffman] Crist had several children before Jacob died at an early
age. The oldest child Andrew inherited his father's land, sold it, moved to
York County, and then to Rockingham and Augusta Counties in Virginia.
Andrew Crist had many children, probably more than half Brethren. The
oldest was Jacob Crist, married Margaret Höh. This Jacob also died at an
early age. Before his death, he and Margaret had five children, three of
whom married into the Brethren Frantz families of Botetourt County, a fourth
who married Jonathan Brubaker of Franklin County, and a fifth who married
into the Glick/Click family. These Crist, Frantz, Brubaker, and Glick
families moved to Clark County, Ohio, during the 1820s where they served at
the Donnel's Creek Church. Some stayed in Ohio, and some moved west to
Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, and elsewhere.
The Kaufamnn/Crist case is just another example of when you go back far
enough, you find Brethren coming from Mennonite stock. Same is true of the
Frantz and Brubacher families.
