|Death: ||May 8, 1863|
Catharine married John Peter Smith abt 1829.
They had the following children: Henry (b. 1829), Elizabeth "Eliza" Hetrick (b. 1832), Mary (b. 1834), Sarah (b. 1836) and Peter (b. 1838).
She was the late wife of M. Brosious.
NOTE: It has been suggested by several members that she is the Catharina "Katrina" Delp (b. 3 Aug 1794) who married Michael Brosius (1792-1867). However, this cannot be true...
In the 1850 and 1860 U.S. Federal Census, Michael is listed with his wife Elizabeth (age 56 and age 65, respectively). Catharine could not have been married to John Peter Smith, and also be enumerated with Michael Brosius (as "Elizabeth").
A note from another contributor:
"This transcription does not imply in any way that she was the wife of Michael BROSIUS. All it says that she was first married to an M. BROSIOUS and then J. P. Smith.. Why would Michael BROSIUS have her wife's tombstone marked BROSIOUS? Actually the two graves are far enough apart that you could have two unmarked graves between them.... easy."
