Am in serious need of some help with this woman!The search for her parents is driving me insane!!!
Catherine was born either 1833 or 1834 in Iredell or Lincoln County, North Carolina.I have been told that her parents are either Henry Hefner and Susanna Isenhour, or Steven Havner and Martha Havner (who are reportedly cousins.talk about keeping it in the family!)However, while I have found girls named Catherine, have found no connection beyond that to prove that either set are her parents.
This is what I have in my records. She was born September 12, 1833, in Iredell County, NC and died in 1916 and is buried in St. Timothy's Lutheran Church in Hickory, NC.She was married twice:1st husband - Miles Logan Yount. They were married in 1856, and they had 4 children:Angeline in 1857, Reuben in 1859, Turley (my great grandmother) born in 1860, and Lydia born in 1862 (I know that Lydia died young).Miles Logan was killed on July 1, 1863 on the first day of the battle of Gettysburg and is buried there.
Her second husband was John Mathews.Someone told me a few days ago that John was married first to a woman named Carpenter, but they did not know her first name.They had 6 children:Alundia b. 1866, Carmy L. b. 1868, Franklin M. b. 1870, Harriet (Hattie) b. 1872, Marcus Tilford and Lillie Bell, b. January 12, 1877.John died as a result from injuries sustained in a riding accident.
Please, PLEASE!!! If someone can help me solve this mystery, I would greatly appreciate it.Thanks!
