My genealogical researches have uncovered dozens of devout ancestors. This is the second installment of a series of posts titled “Doing God’s Work: Our Families’ Faithful”, documenting the lives of those who served God.
In the previous post of this series, I presented the life and times of Stephen Bachiler, a rabble-rousing, rip-tearing reverend. This one briefly touches on the life of Rev. William Christian.
