Catharina Byers Arick
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 30, 1799
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Oct. 31, 1876
Wayne County
Ohio, USA

Records suggest at birth her name was Catherine; but gravestone has "Catharina". This could be problem with the fact that neither she or her husband could not read/write.

She married the farmer Leonard Arick Jr. on 13 Jan 1816 in Washington Co., PA. They named their children: Jacob H, Samuel, John, Mary Ann, William, James C and Silas B Arick.

The family moved from PA in 1828 to Wayne Co., Ohio with their 5 children. Her husband bought land from Peter Crites, the estate of Henry Crites and the deed is signed Erick.

Her husband died in 1868 without a will. After Leonard died she lived with her daughter Mary Ann in Marion Co. Ohio.

Their is still some discussion on who were her parents. Records suggest it was David and Margaret Beyers.
Catharina's siblings were Margaret, Henry, Mary, Elizabeth and Martha Matilda Byers

Catharina and Leonard rest together now in the Old Presbyterian Cemetery in Smithville, Wayne Co., Ohio.
