New Info on Catherine Hardcastle (1868)


Wednesday, February 09, 2011 


E-Mail received from Sheila Bunch, who is a researcher interested in the Worthy/Worthey family line.

She advised me that Cartherine Hardcastle (1868) had married Samuel Worthey about 1886 and they moved to Navarro County, TX.  Catherine was the daughter of Dr. James L. Hardcastle.  The Worthey's were neighbors of the Hardcastles in Faulkner County, AR.

We have not been able to locate a marriage record in Arkansas or Texas.  Catherine and Samuel were listed in the 1900 Census for Navarro County, TX with several children.  Catherine died in 1908, a few days before the death of a baby boy, who was born a few days before Catherine's death.  Several members of this family later moved to Kansas.

 I had previously thought that Catherine died after the 1880 Census in Arkansas since I could not find any marriage or other historical records on her.  This information has been incorporated into the individual pages on the website, and is very much appreciated.
