|Birth: ||Mar. 22, 1815|
Sarah Catherine Mize is buried at Gum Springs Baptist Church Cemetery, Ashville, Al. with no marker to mark the spot. Her tombstone is at Clements Cemetery with her husband, Aaron Granser Clements. The family story behind this arrangement is:Catherine was already sick when husband Aaron died and was living in the valley of Ashville when she died during a heavy snow storm that left such a freeze the horses could not pull the wagon up the mountain for her burial. The family did not believe in disturbing the dead so Catherine's body was left at Gum Springs, Ashville, Al.
