    Recently found this reference to Capt. John Christopher in National Archives microfilm M847 entitled "Special Index to Numbered Records in the War Dept. Collection of Revolutionary War Records". I believe this man lived in Annapolis or Baltimore MD. He was captain of the schooner "LYDIA". He was supposed to have been lost at sea. The reference is to manuscript # 24681, p. 1 and additional documents 28577 and 31859.

    I don't know if anyone has access to these volumes- "Colonial and Revolutionary Lineages of America",NY, 1939-59, by the American Historical Company, Inc. According to another book, "Surname Index to 65 Volumes of Colonial and Revolutionary Pedigrees", volume 10 of the CRLA p. 384 has an entry on the Christopher family in New York. Can anyone find these at a nearby library? I am going to be looking, but I thought somebody might have it and want to check it out. Happy (Y2K-less) New Year,Jon
