Looking for some info on my ggg grandfather.
His parents were Edward Christ and Christiana Schluter, both born in Germany.
George was born in Liverpool along with his younger siblings Henry, Albert, Edward and Agnes.
His mother Christiana died of Typhus in 1873 and shortly afterwards his father Edward emmigrated to San Francisco with George's younger sister Agnes who was only about 3years old at the time. Edward left his other children behind and although it appears that his son Edward was sent to live with his uncle in Camberwell, the other children disappear from the 1881 census.
George then married Christina Paulina Hoag in 1884.
I am intrigued to know what happened to him and his brothers when their father left them in Liverpool in about 1873. George would have been 12 years old, Henry 11, Albert 7 and Edward 5.
Any info on them would be amazing. Or any ideas on why Edward would leave them behind.
