Miscellaneous:

Catharine was in the household with her husband in 1790 in Orange County, North Carolina and in 1850 in Alamance County, North Carolina.[Note: Alamance County formed in 1849 from Orange County to the east, so Catharine and Daniel may have been living in the very same location when both censuses were conducted.]

Daniel and Catharine had 9 children: Jacob (#55), George, William, Sophia, Daniel, Henry, Lewis, Elias, and Joel.

Below: Catharine's tombstone at St. Paul's Lutheran Church Cemetery, Alamance County, North Carolina. (GPS: 36° 1.396 minutes N, 79° 28.689 minutes W). These photographs were taken on 30 September 2005. In the photograph on the right, the tombstone was "chalked" to make the stone easier to read. When found, the top of Catharine's stone was broken off and face down in the earth. After the photo was taken, the top was leaned against the base and a letter was written to the cemetery to find out about having the stone repaired.

The stone reads:
