Parentage of Jacob Crist

Some researchers have placed Jacob Crist as the son of Andrew Crist and Elizabeth Reid, but Andrew appears to have had another son named Jacob, who married Lydia Mowry in 1800, which appears to be problematic, unless it can be proven that Andrew had two sons named Jacob. More research necessary.

Information on Jacob Crist

From Ancestry.com post:

Clarence,

In reference to your query from several weeks ago, I believe the Jacob Crist you ask about, b. 1801 Augusta Co., VA, is the son of Jacob Crist and Margaret "Peggy" Hoh of Augusta Co., VA. I don't have the proof for this, but have seen this connection in several other people's research.

Jacob Crist died in 1805 in Augusta Co., VA. Augusta Co., VA, Will Book 10 pg 1 has will of Jacob Crist, signed 4 Jan 1805 Augusta Co., VA, names wife Peggy and 5 children Ellisabeth, Barbary, Kitty, Jacob, and Susannah. There's more on his estate on page 10. I also found references to a Jacob Crist estate in Will Book Volume 16 p. 217, Vol. 18 p. 208, Vol. 19 p. 83, Vol 22 p. 315. But I did not look at these pages to know if it is the same Jacob Crist or not. Peggy Crist is on the 1810 census of Augusta Co., VA.

Research on Jacob Crist in Augusta Co. can be a challenge since there are two Jacob Crists, both about the same age, in this time period.

Augusta Co., VA, Deed Records 27:540 21 Jan 1794 Christopher & Elizabeth Montel to Michael Hoh, 120 lbs., Middle River, start on line of widow Caull, S 40 E 128 poles, S 36 E 9 poles, N 25 E 55 poles, N 27 W 165 poles, S 19 W 95 poles to start.

Deed Records 28:424 22 May 1795 Jacob and Margaret (signed Marget) Crist, Elizabeth Hoh, Cathrine (signed Catareny) Hoh to Abraham Miller, 140 lbs., 70 acres near Middle River, part of Samuel Hend grant of 7 Jul 1763, deed from Stuffle Mantle to Michael Hoh, now decd, we are heirs of Michael Hoh, start Court's line, S 40 E 128 poles, S 36 E 9 poles, N 25 E 55 poles, N 27 W 165 poles, S 19 W 95 poles, to start. No wtn.

one month later Abraham Miller sells this same land to a Jacob Crist. I have assumed it was the Jacob Crist who married Margaret Hoh. However, the Augusta Co., VA, land tax rolls seem to have the two Jacob Crists reversed, at least to my way of thinking. So I get confused on the two Jacob Crists.

Deed Records 28:423 Abraham & Cathrine (signed Catareny) Miller to Jacob Crist, 140 lbs., 70 acres near Middle River, part Samuel Henderson's grant of 7 Jul 1763, adj. widow Caull, Martin Surface, widow Craffod, widow Stuart....[did not copy the description]


The "other" Jacob Crist b. 1770 m. 1800 Augusta Co., VA, Lydia Mowry. This Jacob died in Augusta Co., VA, in 1827. Some of his descendants moved to Preble Co., OH.
