Elijah Richey(1795-1884) is my ggg grandfather. I cannot determine his parents nor have I identified siblings for him. From census and marriage records he married Rebecca Clark (dau. of Davis Clark), 20 Jun 1816 in Nelson county Kentucky then lived in Spencer county until after 1850 when they moved to Muhlenburg county Kentucky and where he is in the 1860 census ( I have not checked 1870 and 1880). I have his date of death as 17 Jun 1884 in Muhlenburg county.

Andrew Biggs married Elizabeth Crist(1784-1847), daughter of George(1744-1823) and Elizabeth(1752-1830) Collings Crist. Just before 1830 the Biggs along with Elizabeth Crist Biggs's brothers William Lee Crist, Henry Crist and Nicholas Crist moved to Clay county Indiana. I have a death date for Elizabeth Crist Biggs of Sep 1847 but do not have Andrew's. they are buried in Friendly Grove Cemetery, Clay Co. IN. There is a Robert Richey who moved to the Clay and Vigo counties area of Indiana early also, do you know if that would be the Robert Richey that Andrew and Elizabeth gave their possessions in return for care in old age? I presume that Robert Richey was married to one of their daughters?

The George Crist who gave the affidavite in 1833 concerning knowing John Richey may have been George Crist, Jr. b.1768 son of George and Elizabeth Collins Crist. However, William Lee Crist also had a son George (1807-1882)who was living in Spencer county in the 1830 time period.

Elijah and Rebecca Richey's daughter, Nancy, married Robert Crist, son of William Lee Crist on 12 Feb 1835 in Spencer county KY. They also moved to Muhlenburg county KY in the early 1850s and are there for the 1860 census. However during the early 1860s they moved to Clay county IN near the other relatives of Robert Crist. Robert and Nancy Richey Crist are my gg grandparents.
