In part:

"The Family Bible has the name as Christy and confirms birth as January 28th and death as August 1857."

Note: Elizabeth McGuire on 2 February 2019, has raised the issue of whether this person is male or female. I have at this time made the gender as 'Uncertain'.
Note: Elizabeth McGuire has advised that a family Bible records Christy's birth as the 28th January.
