Catherine Martz Duffner was born in Maryland, one of the many children of Peter and Margareth Martz.

It is not known how Catherine Martz ended up moving to Syracuse, New York from her home in Cumberland, but in the 1900 census she was shown in Syracuse, working as a servant with the John Maxwell family. Her future husband Erhardt was also in Syracuse, but wasn't located all that close to where Catherine was living.

Following their marriage, Catherine and Erhardt lived for a time on the Wagner farm and on Park Street in the Liverpool area. Their daughter Marie was born at the Wagner Farm home.

Catherine, or Kate as she was called, returned to her Maryland roots frequently. She would often bring her daughter Marie and spend a couple of months in Cumberland, often with the Boch family. Many of the Maryland relatives would also come north to the cottage her daughter's family owned on Lake Ontario in New York.

Catherine and Erhardt belonged to the Catholic Church and Catherine was very dedicated to her religion. She would sit in her rocking chair with her beads saying the rosary. She was a member of the LCBA, the Alter & Rosary societies of St James Church and Assumption Church, and was also a member of the 3rd Order of St. Francis.
