Per Wall-608: There seems to be a mixup on the Christina Fink profile: she is not Christina DeHart Miller. There are no docs that have my 3rd great aunt Christina Teny Dehart in another marriage. She died as the only wife of Brice Miller.. Perhaps the Fink line has an answer as Jane Miller, the daughter of Brice and Christina Dehart Miller, married Joseph Fink. They had a daughter Christiana Fink. She married Lewis Austin Burdette.
THIS WOMAN IS NOT OF THIS FAMILY...she may be the daughter of the following...
This Abraham is likely the source of the misidentification of the wife of Abraham of Monroe as Christina parentage unknown date of birth unknown, probably 1755-65; first child born 1785 served in Revolutionary War as Sergeant, 3rd Regiment 1781, received pay adjustment at Easton, Northampton Co, PA (Accounts of Auditors of Depreciation Accounts, Bk A, p. 32) married Christina (named as wife in 1787 deed) 1787, with wife Christina, deed with Peter Shire, Easton, Northampton Co, PA 1830, enumerated in Northampton Co, PA (US Census; son Araham also listed) died in Easton, Northampton Co, PA buried at Easton Cemetery, Easton, Northampton Co, PA (Easton cemetery office, Lot G18; no headstone visible) Discussion: This Abraham is likely the source of the misidentification of the wife of Abraham of Monroe as Christina. Both Abrahams served in the Revolutionary War, one as private and this one as sergeant, in the same regiment; Morton, in his History of Monroe Co., WV (1916), noted that "Thomas Dehart [i.e. Abraham] married Christina and was a Sergeant in the Revolutionary War". Abraham lived and died in Easton, PA and cannot be identified with Abraham of Monroe; no primary evidence exists either connecting Abraham of Monroe with a wife Christina. Abraham Dehart/Christina Ensminger The earliest (and only) citation of this I have found so far is the DAR application of Edna Hoffman, Wall, SD, descendant of Abraham Dehart of Monroe, dated 1945. (DAR Patriot Index, Vol. 1, p. 185, 1967) The sources used in the application were other DAR applications, and indirect reference is made to Morton's 1916 history (on the question of "Thomas" Dehart). Mrs. Hoffman writes that Abraham married Christina Ensminger "approx. 1783". In this same application however, the DAR accepted her ancestors service as "Abraham De Hart came from France with La Fayette during Revolutionary War" and says he was born in France in 1755, none of which is substantiated and is now largely disproven. This Christina has been identified as the daughter of David Ensminger, baptized in York Co, PA in 1753, but no evidence exists to connect her to Abraham of Monroe Co. It is likely that the question is compounded by confusion with Christina, wife of Abraham of Easton, Northampton Co, PA.
