The tick mark in cell No. 11 indicates that Christian's father is foreign born, which some secondary sources dispute.  It's wasn't unusual for someone to believe a parent or grandparent "came from the old county" if they still spoke the old language, when in fact the family had been in this country for several generations.  This was expecially true of the "Pennsylvania Deutsch" (who are German, not Dutch) because they held on to their language and culture for many generations, and even to this day.
