Catherine Forrer was the daughter of Michael Forrer (1732-1798) and Anna Catherine Bihn(1724-1799).

Catherine was born in Berks County,Pennsylvania. She was my 4th Ggrandmother. Her father, Michael was a Major in the Revolutionary War.

Catherine married Andrew Zeller in 1779 in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. The marriage was performed by Rev. William Hendel, brother-in-law to Philip William Otterbein.
Catherine and Andrew had 9 children. They were: Catherine, John, Elizabeth (my 3rd great grandmother), George, Michael, Andrew, Barbara, Christena and Mary.

I do not know where she is buried. From my research, I feel it is probably in Berks County, Pennsylvania. I know that Andrew Zeller was a Revolutionary Soldier. I also know that he and some or all of his kids left Pennsylvania in 1806 to move to Ohio.

A Findagrave volunteer, Roadrunner tried to find Catherine's headstone at Reeds Cemetery, but was unable to find it. It could be among the illegible stones, but I will continue to check the other nearby cemeteries.

Update: Catherine did move to Ohio with her husband, Andrew and 5 of her children in 1806. I received this information from Curtis K.,
