She was the 2nd child of Maj. Gen Alexander Macomb (after whom Macomb County Michigan is named) and his wife Catherine Macomb, daughter of William Macomb and Sarah Dring Macomb.
She married John Mason, Jr. the grandson of George Mason of Gunston Hall,VA on April 5, 1827 in Washington, DC. They had 10 children, 4 of whom died very young and are buried at Arlington Nat'l Cem. with relatives. Her husband John died in 1859 and is buried in Christ Church Cemetery, Alexandria, VA.
The 1880 census shows her in Grosse Ile, Michigan living with her sister Alexandrine Macomb Stanton and her nephew Robert Lee Stanton. Only her last child lived longer than she.

Her third child, John Henry Mason, III, the only child to have issue, is also buried at Woodmere, # 12744677 on Find a Grave.

Findagrave has linked Catherine's husband, but his name is wrong.
