!BIRTH: Source-1 age 50-60

!MARRIAGE: Source-4 p. 20 J. E. Booher said that Christopher [sic] Booher married a Wood, dau. of Thomas Wood. Since her given name was Margaret from another source, I am assuming that she was Margaret Wood. Source-4 p. 123 This source has Christian's wives as 1. Margaret Roth and 2. Anna Catarina ? Source-5 Roy Booker says Christian's wife was Margaret Roth.

!DEATH: Margaret does not appear in the 1850 census of Sullivan Co. so I presume she had died.

!BURIAL: Source-7 In the Gunnings Cemetery there is a stone with an unreadable name other that "Mar". I am presuming this is Margaret Roth since the dates fit and her husband is buried in this cemetery

!ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Source-6 named as wife
