Original tombstone read: "1800 Catharine HO"
Born in Europe, ca. 1737/8, daughter of Amish Bishop Jacob Hertzler, possibly by his second wife, Catherine. Came to America in 1749 on the ship St. Andrew. Married ca. 1755 to John Hochstetler. Resided in Berks Co., Pa., and afterward in Elklick Twp., Somerset Co. Mother of Jacob, John, Catherine, Joseph, David, Henry, Daniel and Jonathan Hochstetler, Freni Yoder and Anna Miller.
Catherine was buried on the home farm, one mile southwest of Summit Mills, Pa. The farm was owned by Joel Hershberger shortly before 1934 when a survey of the cemetery was taken and is generally referred to by that name. It is also known as the historic Hochstetler/Yoder Cemetery.
Catherine's original tombstone was removed for safekeeping to the restored "Little House" (Grossdaddy Haus) on the home farm. When the house was destroyed by a tornado in 1998, the tombstone was lost and never recovered. The present Memorial Marker was placed in 1978 by the late Paul V. Hostetler.
