Christian first married Margaret Munday about 1792 in Morris County, New Jersey. Margaret died February 16,1794 giving birth to their son, Christopher. It is likely that Christopher did not survive, as no record has been found of him subsequently.

Christian and Mary Douglass then married on May 11, 1794 in Morris County, New Jersey. Nine of their ten children were born in New Jersey.

In November, 1816, the family moved from Morris County, New Jersey to the Green Valley Community in Knox County, Ohio, traveling five weeks. Christian's father-in-law, Captain Aaron Douglass, had previously filed for a free military tract in Ohio, but had died before moving to Ohio. Christian and Mary Douglass Rinehart, settled on this 133 acre tract, near Mary's brother, William Douglass and sister, Anna Douglass Loveridge. He cleard the land of forest to start a farm. The farm was on what is now Lower Green Valley, west of Mount Vernon.

In subsequent years, Christian bought 1000 acres of land in Hilliar, Morris and Wayne Townships. This land was eventually divided, and a portion given to each of his children as they married.
