Christopher Yergason was born, according to the Brewster Genealogy 1566-1907 published in 1908, 23 October 1815 in Norwich, CT. His father Christian Yergason b. Norway and Sally (Savage) had five children. The first four children appear (as does the father) as "Yergerson" in the Norwich vital records. Christopher, who is not listed among those town records and whose birth date I have not been able to verify, moved to Windham, CT and in Windham on 28 May 1838 married Charlotte Ann (Smith) b. 2 August 1819 in Windham. Their name and that of their children appears in the early records of the First Congregational Church of Windham. [I have seen copies of the original church record and the name is clearly Yergason or perhaps Yerguson not Fergason.] The name has been carried down as Yergason. Further evidence of Christopher's relationship with Christian and Sally is that Christopher, Charlotte, and Sally are buried together in Windham.
