Hi !

I am researching the Catherine "Caty" MILLER MCELWAIN BROOKS and her father
Caty was est.born bet. 1763-1776 d. unknown.

Her first married was to Unknown MCELWAIN est.born 1750-1770 married unknown, d. bef. 1794.
I don't know if they had any children.

She married Jermemiah Jerry BROOKS, on August 18, 1794 in Franklin County, Virginia.
In the Marriage Book her father is listed as Jacob MILLER.
In her marriage Bond for the sur. Abraham RITTER was their bondsman.
It is quite poss. that Abraham Ritter is her uncle??

Caty was married the same day by her father Jacob MILLER, the German Baptist Elder.
Caty was educated she could read and write, she even wrote a letter consenting to her marriage to Jeremiah BROOKS (which is unusal in its time).

Two known childen of Catherine Miller Mcelwain Brooks and Jeremiah BROOKS.
1. Abraham Abram BROOKS-b.Bet.1796-1799 in Franklin Co., VA. He married Judah "Sydney" Sudna Carpenter* My line.

2. Jeremiah Jerry Brooks,Jr.-b.Bet.1798-1800 in Franklin Co., VA. married Virgina "Jane" Unknown.
poss. there could be more children but don't know..

Note-McElwains also used the following spellings:
Mclewain, Mccwain, Mucklewain, Mackelwain, McClain, McElvain, McIwane, McIlwane,Wayne, Wain, and more anything goes for this family spellings...

I am hoping to find more information on what happened to Catherine/Catheron "Caty" and her two husbands, if she had more children by both of her two husbands, and what happened to them.
She possible could of gotten married again or evan Jeremiah Brooks??
Did she moved to Ohio or Indiana areas to be near her family or did she died young after having her children by Jeremiah BROOKS?

Any information an the above will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
