John C. BIEBIGHEISER m. (1)16 Dec. 1858 Catherine OATHOUT b. 1828 New Jersey d.1874 New Germantown (now Oldwick), Hunterdon Co., N.J. They were married in Zion Lutheran Church in New Germantown (now Oldwick)N.J.
I am looking for further info on Catherine OATHOUT who was my great-great grandmother. I was told she was adopted as an infant after her parents were both killed in a carriage accident. The story goes that she was also with them but was thrown from the carriage but survived.I do not know if Oathout was her birth name or the name of the people who may have adopted her. She died of congestive heart failure(dropsy). She is buried in a cemetery in Oldwick which is on Joliet Rd. I do not know the name of this cemetery. Thanks for any help you can give me.
