Married James Barningham August, 1851.

Obituary: Mrs. Catherine Barningham
The death of Mrs. Catherine Barningham occurred on Thursday at her home in Thompson, she was about 70 years old. Her death was a great surprise to her many friends as she had been ill but a short time. Her maiden name was Catherine Raisbeck. She was born in Yorkshire and was married in Council Hill in August 1851, to James Barningham. After their marriage they settled on a farm in Thompson and by hard work and economy they were very successful from the start. The deceased has been a faithful wife, a true and loving mother. The community will lose much by her demise, as she was a very charitable woman. She was a member of the M. E. church. Her kindness and good deeds will be remembered for years to come. She raised a family of seven children, six of whom are living. She has done everything in the power of a Christian mother to educate her family and has had the pleasure of seeing them all prosper. She received the best of care, nothing was left undone that could comfort her in her sickness, but the time had come when her affectionate family had to bid good-bye to a mother who had devoted an entire life for their sake. Following are the names of her children: Mrs. John Meloy of Normal, Ill.; Mrs. Sarah Jaggers of Thompson; Mrs. Wm. Stauss and Mrs. Barrett of Apple River; and Marv, the only son, who lives on the homestead. The funeral took place Sunday, interment at Scales Mound. Re. Lowery of Council Hill, an intimate friend of the deceased, officiated. He preached a very appropriate sermon to a large congregation, who were present to pay their last respects to a woman who had accomplished many noble deeds. The family has the sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement.
