PLEASE NOTE THIS!!!
This information connecting this Christopher Choate and his "father"
are still sketchy... so BUYER BEWARE...:)

According to our Beloved Irene Choate Williams, who has done extensive
work on these lines..."Other than the two men being named Christopher
we really have no evidence between 1642 when one was born and 1676 when
one came to America to satisfy me that we really have the right man..."
"Years ago I spent a lot of time at the TN state library checking
Maryland laws and discussing them with other genealogists there, trying
to determine how old Christopher was by what he received at the end of
his indenture and all I was able to find was that he was over 16. BUT
WOULD HE HAVE BEEN 34 WHEN HE ARRIVED HERE AND NOT HAD ANY CHILDREN
UNTIL 1690 AT THE AGE OF 48????"--Irene Choate Williams

I INCLUDED THE GROUPSHEETS ON THESE LAST THREE CHRISTOPHER CHOATEs TO
GIVE OTHER RESEARCHERS THE SAME INFORMATION I HAVE, AND HOPEFULLY
"FISH" FOR INFORMATION WE ARE LACKING...Debra Neiman
