John Christy

John Christy, father of our subject, was a millwright by trade, which occupation he followed some fifty years. He was twice married—first time August 2, 1828, to Parmelia Quint, who was born in September, 1809, in the State of Maine, daughter of William and Susan (Payne) Quint, both also natives of Maine (the former born November 20, 1785; they were married in 1808), where the father was a sailor during the earlier years of his life. They removed to New Brunswick in 1723, where Mr. Quint was engaged in lumbering, and Mrs. Quint died. They were the parents of ten children, to wit: Permelia, born September 1, 1809, married in 1828, died in 1836; Joannes, born March 28, 1811; died 1812; Diana, born February 5, 1813, married 1833, died 1892. Eliza, born August 18, 1816, married 1834, died 1842; William Payne, born December 1, 1818, married 1846; Amsom Parker, born May 11, 1824, married 1855; Susan Payne, born July 26, 1826, married 1846, died 1861; Jane Allingham, born May 12, 1829, married 1853; Elizabeth E., born October 13, 1832, died 1842; Henry D., born August 25, 1835, married 1866. The father of these died in 1843, the mother in 1865. Samuel Payne, maternal grandfather of Mrs. Permelia Christy, was a Revolutionary Soldier. To John and Permelia Christy were born children as follows: Mary Ann, May 11, 1829; John P., December 1, 1830; Diana, February 21, 1833; and Thomas, August 13, 1835. The mother of these died May 27, 1836, and in 1845 mr. Christy, for his second wife, married Miss Jane B. Perley, who was born December 4, 1808, daughter of Thomas Perley; she died September 21, 1871.
