Catherine Crater was the daughter of Morris and Maria Margaretha (Wintermute) Crater of Foxhill. She married John Jacob Welsh about 1794-1795 and settled on a farm that is now on Hill and Dale Road northwest of New Germantown (now Oldwick) that was given to them by his father, William Welsch, Jr. Her husband, known as Jacob Welsh, died in 1810 leaving her a widow with nine children, all under the age of 15. She raised all the children by herself. The picture here is BELIEVED to be Catharine, taken sometime in the early 1840s.
