|Death: ||May 9, 1891|
Daughter of George & Barbara Hockman Dellinger
Married Henry Huffman
Their children were:
Mary Jane (Mauck) 1835-1915
John William 1839-1892
George W. 1840-1861
Sarah Catherine (Stokes) 1842-
Frances "Fannie" (Vincent) 1845-1932
Mahala (Walters) 1852-1905
William H. 1854-1870
Lucy Ellen (Sealock) 1855-1924
Catherine and Henry resided in Warren County, Va.
Henry was a carpenter by trade so he most likely built his home himself. Their home is on what is now State Route 660 (Kendrick Ford Rd.). Rt. 660 intersects with Rt. 621 (Punch Run Rd.) which intersects with the Strasburg Road (Rt. 55) between Front Royal and Strasburg. Henry's death date is not known but would have been sometime between the birth of his youngest child, Lucy Ellen (my gg-grandmother) and 1860 as Catherine appears on the 1860 census as a 50 year old widow whose occupation was farming. All 13 of her children were still living at home and were between the ages of 5 and 24. She employed 2 black day laborers.
The house was sold out of the family at some point but was later purchased by their great-grandson, Russell Sealock, (who was my grandfather). As a child, I remember my grandmother telling me that Catherine had died in the kitchen of the house. I remember the kitchen of that house as a large, sunny room (what we would consider today to be a family room, I guess, with room for cooking, eating, and sitting by the windows to converse with friends and family and watch cars go up and down the road.) but my mom remembers that, when Granddad purchased the house, the area was divided into a kitchen with a separate dining room and that my Granddad had removed the partition. Sadly, after my grandfather died, my grandmother sold the house outside of the family again, stating that it wouldn't be fair to allow any one of her children to purchase it from her if they all couldn't. The new owner has restored the original house and resides in it and the land was subdivided into 5 acre parcels and many new homes have been built there.
When my granddad purchased the place there were 28 acres, a 5 bedroom farmhouse and several out-buildings, including a barn, chicken house and the remains of a building that was used to press apples. The original land parcel could have been much larger as my mother remembers a family cemetery in woods which were some distance away from my Granddad's property, where Catherine and Henry and some of their children were buried. At the time, which would have been more than 50 years ago, there were tombstones but we have searched and have (yet) been unable to find the cemetery.
