RE: catherine conrad In my research, I discovered that my great grandmother, Mary Baker Newbrander, was Catherine's sister. Mary has also been listed as Becker in the past.
Their parents were John and Margaret Baker in an 1870 census. Their brother was Jacob Baker. Jacob, his wife Mary, their children Harry, Margaret, and Edward are buried next to the Conrad's. The Bakers are in Section 8 Lot 28A and the Conrad's are on Section 8 Lot 28B at Woodside. Also, the marriage records show Catherine (Katie) and John were married on 2/9/1888 and her maiden name was Baker. Catherine's daughter, Leona Conrad was a first cousin to my grandfather.
It is up to you if you want to make this change based on this information or not. It is not that important to me.
