"From Biographical Sketches of Morrow County: Page 829 - Christian came to America about 1746, landing at Philadelphia and settled in the Colony of Pennsylvania where he remained some time, His passion for a young lady back in Switzerland caused him to return and claim her. She was only 13 years old but Elizabeth Ingood married him and returned with him to the Colony. After seven years in the Colony, he became a citizen in 1753. His naturalization paper are still in the families possession of Dr D.M.S Singrey who lives on the old homestead where his father, Jehu Singrey settled in 1816. They also have his surgical lancet which is over 150 years old. Christian was a zealous patriot, and loaned nearly half a bushel of gold and silver coin to the Continental Congress; and received in payment their issue of paper money, which was almost worthless; he was an Army Surgeon in the Revolution under General Washington and had his headquarters in Baltimore." -- Foster.

"Part of this information came: From the Book: The Descendants of Christian and Elizabeth Ingold Singrey-1746-1993, compiled by Karen L. Young. The first Singrey of which we have an authentic account, came to America in the year of 1746 from Switzerland, where was born near Luzerne. This man was named Christian, and his eyes first saw the light in his parent’s alpine home on September 27, 1723. He Received a liberal education and fitted himself for the practice of medicine and surgery, and is known to have been Preeminently gifted in the surgical branch of his profession. He landed at Philadelphia and located in the colony of Pennsylvania, took out naturalization papers, September 27,1753. These Papers bear the great seal of the crown of Great Britain, on whose dominion it is said, "the sun never sets. He practiced his profession and returned to Switzerland in a few years and married Elizabeth Ingold, whom it is said was but thirteen years of age when this interesting and important event took place; after which they returned to the colonies and finally located in Baltimore Co. in Maryland after the Revolutionary War. He bought and located on the land known as George's Run and owned 300 acres. Elijah Foster finally owned the land and in 1899 still had the property. He served as surgeon in General Washington’s army during the Revolutionary War and was stationed in the city of Baltimore until the war ended. He loaned gold and silver money to the colonial government, receiving in it’s return it’s script, which proved to be worthless, thereby causing him considerable loss of (pecuniary) money.
However, being Full of the love of liberty and the patriotism of this immortal epoch in the world’s history, he counted but as (dross this filthy lucre) loss of filthy money. i.e., "lust of lucre and the dread of death" had no abiding influence with him; therefore, after the war ended, he went resolutely to work and was soon the owner of a large tract of land, a comfortable home, and was considered at that time to wealthy. Being a man of intelligence, he governed well his family. Thus they lived and prospered both in "basket and in store," and with the blessing of children made life to them joy and a satisfaction. He died June 1,1817, at the home i-in-law, Samuel Markey in Maryland, and Elizabeth departed this life four years before on July 17, 1813. They have 9) children: EVE (1), ELIZABETH (2),JACOB (3), ANNA (4), CHRISTIAN(S), ALICE (6),JOHN (7),JEHU (8) AND INGOLD (9)." -- Lemmon.
