Christian, Brown, Allen and Hughes family connections
of Lovingston, Nelson, Virginia

(Mulatto / African American lines)

This is just an introduction to the Christian family connection.

In order to connect to the "Christian" family, we'll have to look at my great grandfather Alex Allen sister's daughter. (See "Allen family").
Her name was Ida Allen, born in 1860, who married Moses Brown, born 1857.

Here is the family branch of Moses Brown, and Ida Allen in 1910.

Moses, and Ida's daughter Sarah, born 1895, married Willie Hughes, born 1891.

Willie was the son of Rev. Richard Hughes, and Sallie R. Chistian, A.K.A. "Ms. Sallie Hughes". Sallie Hughes was our first family historian. Her son, Willie's brother, was Rev. Charles S. Hughes, A.K.A. "The Preacher of Nelson County". (See "Bailey family").
Rev. Richard Hughes, and Sallie, founded many of the original African American Baptist Churches in Nelson County, and also trained two addition relatives, who were brothers, in the ministry. Their names were reverends William and Walter Meredith of Shipman, Nelson, VA.

Sallie, born 1869, was the daughter of George, and Ellen Christian. This branch of the "Christian" line resided on the borders of Nelson County, and Amherst, in the area of Temperance, Amherst, VA.

Portions of this line of ancestors, were slaves of the "Mosby, Scruggs, and Massie" families, and were sent to work the plantations in Massies Mill. They married into the "Allen, Cashwell, Clarkson, Carter, Cary, Ellis, Giles, Harris, Loving, Morse, Robinson, Rhodes, Taliaferro / Toliver, Thompson, Rhodes, and Walker families.

Sallie's father George Christian had ten siblings. His brother Washington "Wash" Christian, born 1817 was sent to work on the "Mosby" plantation. Wash's son Nathan Christian, born 1852 married Paulina "Lena" Horsley, born 1858. Lena's first husband was Tom Mitchell. This is one of the area where the "Mitchell" family line attaches.

Paulina Horsley, was the daughter of Frederick Horsley, and Milly Whitlock.
