Catherine E Wells Bastow
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: May, 1841
Death: unknown

Daughter of James and Mary Wells. Catherine Wells and William Bastow were married in Fairfax on 18 December 1866.

I believe she is buried with her husband. Of course, I may be wrong. I have been unable to find an obituary for her.
Notice the space below her name on the marker. This would be where her birth and death dates would be. Also the marker says "His Wife" rather than "Erected by His Wife" or "By His Wife."
Her parents and sister died before she did. I don't know what became of her brothers. There may not have been family left in the area to hire the stone mason to add her birth an death dates to the memorial.
I do know that she went to live with a niece c. 1924. I don't know where. If I find her obituary or some indication that she was not buried in Flint Hill Cemetery I will update or remove her memorial.
