The Catherine Coldiron who married Hiram B. Saylor on 19 May 1873 in Harlan County, KY, HAS BEEN THOUGHT TO BE a daughter of William (Billie) Coldiron and Leah Lewis.However, there is considerable reason to doubt that this Catherine was a Coldiron at all, and may have been a Coldiron by marriage.
At the marriage to Hiram B. Saylor, there is a marriage permission slip signed by Sarah A. Rice which reads: "Sir, please issue marriage license for the marriage of my dau. Catherine Coldiron to Hiram B. Saylor."The marriage certificate says the marriage took place at Sally Rice's.
The Catherine Coldiron who married Zachariah B. Wilson on 27 Feb 1878 in Harlan County, WAS a daughter of William (Billie) Coldiron and Leah Lewis.Children by this marriage were: Absolom Wilson (male), b. abt. 1879 in KY.
In William (Billie) Coldiron's will, dated 3 May 1877, he mentions daughter Catherine Coldiron.If Catherine was married to Hiram B. Saylor at that time, he probably would have referred to her as Catherine Saylor.(He referred to other daughters by their married names.)This leads me to believe that either (1) the Catherine who married Hiram B. Saylor was not a daughter of William (Billie) Coldiron & Leah Lewis, or (2) if she was a d/o William & Leah, she must have divorced Saylor by 1877 since she is referred to as Catherine Coldiron.
If the Catherine who married Hiram B. Saylor was a Coldiron by marriage, I have not yet figured out which male Coldiron she could have married.If anyone can shed some additional light on this, I would be grateful for the information.
