Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Christopher Jr ZUMWALT

Residences & events:

Callaway Co, MO where Chris and a Mercena were mentioned on the same page of the 1884 history of the county.

TX. Family tradition says that following Elizabeth's death, Christopher, accompanied by son Abraham and his wife, and possibly daughter Mary Ann's family, migrated to be near other relatives already there. To pay for the trip they took a boatload of supplies such as pork and lard to New Orleans to sell.

Family tradition says he died enroute to TX with son, Abraham, but his will, dated 11/15/1828 and proved 6/22/1829, was probated in St Charles, MO. Brother Jacob Zumwalt, executor, presented the will for probate there on 6/13/1829.
