Birth: 1740, Ireland
Death: Jul. 30, 1812
Gainesboro
Frederick County

Born: Ulster, Trone, Ireland

Early census records of Ireland (1659) indicate Cather family members were living in County Tyrone and County Londenderry, Ireland. It is believed Joseph Cather emigrated from that area of Ireland in the early 1700's. According to manuscript family records, Jasper was at Fort Redstone in western Pennsylvania in the early 1750's; in 1773 his name appears on a tax list of Farguhar County, Pennsylvania; by 1786 he had come to the countryside west of Winchester, Virginia.

Jasper married Catherine Lawrence on March 27, 1771 in Fayette City, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. He married Barbara Lawrence in Frederick County, Virginia. Jasper married Sarah Moore on March 27, 1786 in Frederick County, Virginia.

The Thomas Pine Petznick family tree on ancestry.com lists five children of Jasper and his second wife and seven children of Jasper and his third wife. Children listed are Jane Cather, Mary Cather, Thomas Cather, John Howard Cather, Margaret Cather, Robert Cather, David Cather, William Cather, Hannah Cather, James Cather, Sarah Cather, and Mary Cather.
