U.S. States: North Carolina: Lincoln County
I am looking for information on Catherine Hefner Yount Mathews (or spelled Matthews, not sure). She was born around 1834 in Catawba County and died 1916 in Hickory, Lincoln County, (I think) NC. She is buried at St. Timothy's Lutheran Church in Hickory. I would appreciate it if someone could see if they could locate this graveyard and see if there is any record of her burial at the church. I am hoping that the record might list the name of her parents, whose names are still a mystery to me. I do know that Catherine was married twice, first to Miles Logan Yount; he was killed on 1 July 1863 on the first day of the battle of Gettysburg and is buried there as far as I know; her second husband was John Mathews, who died as a result of injuries he sustained from a riding accident. With Miles she had four children; with John she had six children. Two of her children came to Texas (Turley Ellen and Reuben) and are buried in Erath County, Texas. Turley is my great grandmother, and Miles Logan and Catherine are my great grandparents. However, I have been unable to find Catherine's parents at all. If someone wouldn't mind going and looking for her grave and a record of her death, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you very much!!
