Catherman-Linn Connection
Posted by: PHILIP SCAGLIONE (ID *****5643) Date: July 07, 2008 at 19:29:56

Interested in learning about any connection between the Linn and Catherman Families in Union County, PA. Believe that the wife of Michael Catherman(1786-1862) may have been Nancy Linn(b. 1768- d. ???). She was born in Lurgan Township, Cumberland County, PA. Michael was the son of Jacob Catherman and Magdalena Frederick. Nancy Linn was the daughter of William Linn, Jr.(1722-1812)and his second wife Jane McCormick. Nancy Linn had a brother David Linn(1776-1848), who served in the War of 1812 and is buried in Union County, PA. It may be coincidence, but the eldest child of Michael Catherman was named Nancy Catherman(1806-1883). Michael Catherman also had a son David Linn Catherman(1812-1882). The brother of Michael Catherman, Daniel Catherman, had a grandson Jacob Linn Catherman(1854-1923). Jacob Linn Catherman had a son named Linn Catherman. There seems to be some connection between the Linn and Catherman Families in Union County, PA but it is unclear. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
