I am part of a group of researchers looking for the parents of Lewis
Jefferson CHRISTIAN b. 18ll in TN; possibly in Hawkins County. He
married Lavina FRAZIER in Putnam County, IN in 1831. He lived in
Sweetwater, TN for a time prior to going to Putnam County, IN. We
believe that his father may have been Allen CHRISTIAN, son of Lewis
CHRISTIAN, Sr. because Allen went to Sweetwater when he left Hawkins
County. However, we have never been able to find a listing of
Allen's children's names. If anyone has any information that might
be of help, we would greatly appreciate it!
