Here is the information we know about Catharine:
Some say she was born 9 Mar 1799 in NY and all census indicate she was born in 1799. Married Nathan GROSVENOR, son of Richard GROSVENOR and Rebecca GLOYD of Fairfax, Franklin County, VT, ca 1825. Nathan's wereabouts from 1800 to 1830 unknown but he is found on the 1830 Stockton, Chautauqua County, NY so Catharine should have been in that area in about that time frame. Canada is also a possibility.
Nathan dies in McLean TWP, Shelby County, OH and is buried in a German Reformed Cemetery (Walkup Cemetery, Shelby County, OH). Prior to his marriage to Catharine his family was Anglican and then Methodist.
Catharine describes herself as a nurse in one census. She is called "kate" by those who know her. She is very Victorian, prim and proper even for someone who lives in the Victorian Era. Overall, I would say she was one tough old bird, meaning no disrespect to her.
The known names of N&C's children are Hiram, Cyrus, Lucille, John Allen, Wellington and Nina. Catharine outlives all of her children and husband. She lives the last 15 years of her life with her son-in-law, the Rev. John Wesley EDWARDS, and dies in Latty TWP, Paulding County, OH on 1 Sep 1883. She is buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Latty TWP, Paulding County, OH with the Edwards family as C. M. GROSVENOR.
Collateral Families are: EDWARDS, WHITNEY, CRISSEY, BLISS, THOMPSON, LANHAM, BISHOP, ROLLINS, WEBSTER and BARBER.
