I am trying to find out the names of my great-grandparents
on my father's side. My grandfather was Howard Christian, who
I believe was born in Tenn. but lived most of his life in Harlan, Kentucky.
He married Dixie Gross who was the daughter of John B. Gross,
jailer of Harlan County in the 1930's 40's.

CHRISTIANs of Harlan Co., KY

Saw the two messages about the CHRISTIAN family of Harlan County, KY. My grandfather was Charles Allen CHRISTIAN, born 1/28/1897 in Grays, Knox Co., KY to William and Amanda (Vaughn) CHRISTIAN. Both William and Amanda were born in VA (according to 1910 Knox Co. KY census). I have not yet begun compiling history on the CHRISTIAN line; however, I do know that my grandfather had siblings named Sally (married a Blanton); Neal (was Deputy Sheriff of Harlan County); Harvey; Henderson (age 18 at 1910 census); Colson? (age 16 at 1910 census); John (age 7 ...); and Albert (age 4 ...). From what my mother tells me, Albert died in Dayton, OH. She also remembers a total of (8) children. My mom's sister's husband was telling me just this evening that two of my grandfather's brothers died in a dried-up well. However, he didn't know their names. My grandparents are buried in Resthaven Cemetery in Harlan, KY. I do have that publication if any of your relatives are buried there and I'd be happy to look up some names for you. Hope this helps ~ please let me know if we connect.
