  • Notes 
    • Catherine’s gravestone has “Katherine” as the first name spelling, however, the birth document spells it with a C.

      After her husband’s death, Catherine signed her right to administer Joseph’s estate to her brother Peter. The Schrock family remembers that Peter cared for his sister and her children in some manner until Catherine married her second husband about a year later in March of 1865.
