Father was Barney Stoughton, born in Butler County, Pennsylvania.
Mother was Susan Harvey, died in Butler County, Pennsylvania, May 17, 1847.
Mary Catherine Stoughton, daughter of Bernard Van Zandt Stoughton and Susan Harvey, was born, on 9 Nov. 1844, in Muddy Creek Twp., Butler County, PA. She was a toddler, probably two or three years old when her mother, Susan Harvey, died. Her father moved, by 1848, to Callensberg in Clarion Co. and remarried when Mary Catherine was four; her step-mother Susan Myer raised her.
Mary Catherine married at age 20 to William Whitman, who born in Feb. 1833 and his parents were born in Germany and he was 11 years her senior. They moved westward to Lawrence Co., Missouri by 1860, and her father followed in 1867. The two families were still in Missouri in 1870. Her father moved on to Kansas in 1880 but the Whitmans appear to have remained in Missouri, in Newton County in 1900 & 1910. By 1900 they had had seven children, six of whom were living, and by 1910 only five children remained living. Mary Catherine was age 65 in 1910, her husband age 81. Two daughters live with them, the younger, Mollie, age 13, which would indicate that Mary Catherine had her last child at about age 52. Mary Catherine died on 11 June 1911 and is buried in the Clear Creek Cemetery, in Berwick, Missouri.
