Almost nothing is known about Christiana (who also sometimes is called "Christina"). She is presumed to have been born in Maryland, but no Branson families have been identified in Baltimore or adjacent counties in the 1750s or '60s. Since she married Thomas Rowles at about the age of 30, it's also possible this was not her 1st marriage and that "Branson" wasn't even her maiden name.
