Catherine Van Wye [b. circa 1811] married Gardner Dabney [b.1907] in 1826, both born in what was then Trumbull County. He died within a few years but apparently after thay had six children. I am searching for the children of this union. The only child I know of is Laura J. born in 1830.[She married Covington Westlake and had 9 children in the 1850s & 60s].
I have not been able to locate Catherine in the censuses until 1870 when she lived in Austintown with a Westlake granddaughter. Prior years she must have been listed in a household under someone else's name.
Actually, I would not mind learning more about the Dabney family generally. I know that Gardner's parents are Nathaniel G. Dabney and Mary Kiefer. Nathaniel was an early settler in Youngstown with first purchase in 1796. So far I have found they had children named Elizabeth, Sophia, Mary, Ebernezer, John and Gardner [which it seems was Nathaniel's mother's maiden name]. More info on the other Dabney relatives might help me figure out which of the many Dabney's living in the area are Catherine's children.
Thanks for any info and assistance.
