Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 1, 1832
Greene County
Illinois, USA
Death: Sep. 26, 1859
Linn County
Oregon, USA

Catherine died from complications following the birth of her son, Edward. She never recovered from his birth and died about 6 wks. after he was born. She had come to Oregon to be one of the first women to teach in Oregon, arriving with her family in Oct. 1847 in what would become the town of Albany, Oregon. She had married Mr. White in Albany almost a year after her family's arrival, on July 2nd, 1848, and they were blessed with their first child, Cynthia Louise, in 1851. Their second daughter, Abagail Adelia, was born in 1854. Their third daughter, Jeanette, "Nettie", was born in 1857, and there was another child who I only know as "M.T. White", gender and date of birth unknown (it may have been a stillborn child or a child who died in infancy). Their last child and son was Edward, who was born on August 12th, 1859. His dear Mama died September 26th, 1859 and was buried at Riverside Cemetery in Albany. Poor little Edward died on October 11th, 1859, when he was just two months old. He was buried near his mother at the Riverside Cemetery in Albany, Linn County, Oregon.

Rest Well, dear Cousin. How I wish your life could have been different. I know you were waiting for your little boy at the gates of Heaven. With affection from Leander's great, great granddaughter,
