ABRAHAM CHRISS, b: abt. 1780 PA., d: abt. 1866, m: Kathy/Catherine Last name possibly AMSPAUGH, b: PA., d: abt. 1865. They Had 2 children that we are sure of. Information is below.
Through research we have learned there might have been another Abraham Chriss married to a Catherine as well with several children. If you have any information on this and can help us clarify this information we would be very greatful.
Other Children that might belong to Abraham Chriss and Kathy/Catherine (possibly Amspaugh). (1) Elisha Chriss, poss. b: Virginia (records show him as an idiot of unsound mind)
(2) Henry Chriss, poss. b: Maryland (records show him as an idiot of unsound mind)
(3) Elisha Chriss, poss. b: Indiana (records show him as an idiot of unsound mind)
---> The other Abraham Chriss and Catherine both born in Ohio, show children as Lydia A. b: IN.; Mary C. b: IN.; George b: IN.; & a Michael OUSPAW living in the household. OUSPAW is another spelling for AMSPAUGH also ANSPACH is another spelling. <---
This is why we need to clarify if our Kathy/Catherine was aslo an AMSAPUGH and who the other Abraham was as well.
