Find A Grave Memorial# 107346471
I would like to request transfer of this memorial to me. She was my mother-in-law. You have already transferred to me the memorial for her first husband Henry (Find A Grave Memorial# 112247473), my father-in-law. If you prefer, I can send you all her birth, marriage, death, and second marriage information for inclusion in your memorial.

Thank you,

RE: Jesse Rader
Tom, I'm not necessarily trying to get you to change it but there could be other possibilities for who this Catherine Laughner might be. I believe Catherine Catron was the daughter of Valentine Catron Sr. and his wife Mary Eve Misemer. This Catherine Catron (Ketron) married Daniel Laughner in Greene County, Tennessee 9/2/1841. A Catherine Laughner is in the 1850 Greene County, Tennessee Federal Census with three small children (John, Amanda and Leander Laughner) but no husband. I assume he (Daniel Laughner) is dead or has abandoned the family or otherwise missing.

Side Note: This Catherine Laughner is living two houses away from Henry Rader in this 1850 census. Her husband Daniel Laughner was the grandson of this Henry Rader and Henry specifically excluded Daniel from his will. This however doesn't prove anything.

What may be the key is whether Jesse Rader married his 1st cousin as is stated in the profile. This Catherine Catron Laughner would not have been his 1st cousin. In this scenerio, Jesse would have married the wife of his cousin.

I just believe some more data may need to be found to support which ever way it ends up. My rendition is weak as water.
