Born the daughter of Needham Nelson Cato and Ann (maiden name unknown).
Rebecca married Andrew Jackson Wiley on 20 Jan 1859 in Conway County, AR.
Born to this marriage were the following children listed from oldest to youngest. Julia Ann, Isah "Ike", Thomas Edward, Vicie E., John Quincy, Sarah Adeline, William Andrew Jackson, (twins) Caroline and James E., Emma L., Needham Franklin, George Washington and Rebecca Ann Wiley. In 1860 A.J. and Becky were found in Polk County, AR with their first child Julia Ann. In 1870 they had moved back to Conway County and homestead 160 acres of land north and east of Appleton on Poe Creek. They raised their 13 children there with only one dying young and that was Caroline and she died at 17 years of age in 1889. Much credit must be given to my gggrandmother Rebecca for raising this many children to adulthood with child mortality rate being so high due to lack of modern medicines.
