In Reply to: Presley Christian is who's son? by P. L. Christian Jr of 9

The following information was printed in a Beaver Press newspaper article at the time of the death of John Ward Christian, who died January 11, 1921:

"Dr. Christian was born on a plant-
ation in McMarrie county, Tenn., on
February 7, 1822. His grandfather
Yens Peter Christian, came to Am-
erict from Isle of Man about the year
1750; settled in Georgia, where Dr.
Christian's father Yancey Pressley
was born. His mother, Sara Bar-
bara Wylwyet, was born in Mar
seille, France, and emigranted to Am
erica in 1799 at the age of 18 years"

The spacing, punctuation and spelling above are exactly as they appear in the newspaper article.

It appears that Presley Christian's father is Jens Peter Christian.

My understanding is that Sarah White was Yancey Pressley (or Yancy Presley) Christian's first wife and that Sara Barbara Wylwyet was his second wife.
