John Christner

John Christner and his wife Frannie Johns (Schantz) were Amish settlers on a farm at Compton on Mt. Davis in 1775. A memorial stone was placed at the Church of the Brethren Cemetery at Savage since their burial stones on the original cemetery at Compton were removed and destroyed. A train's caboose marks the original spot.

He did not serve in a military unit; however, he paid the 1783 Federal Supply Tax.
