1. Relatives To Research: 13 Jul 1794, New Holland, Lancaster, PA. 8 We were unable to locate Catharine's parents believing her surname was Schneider. But the clues to solve her mystery were evident, because three of Catharine's children were baptized by: Sarah Schnöder Polly Schneider Amos Schnader

Searching those surnames turned up the helpful research in two volumes. "The Schnader Family Reunion 1929" booket, and the book "The Marks / Schnader Connection" whcih revealed that her parents were Baltzer Schneder and Barbara Kitzmiller and she married John Bucher aka Bücher later Bicher. We then found records in reocrds for Catharine's baptism on 13 Jul 1794 as recorded in the records of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in New Holland, which served a large surrounding area in the 1790s. Baltzer's other children include Mary (Polly), Sarah, and Amos, Catharine's siblings were the baptism sponsors above mentioned.

The book reports: "Baltzer I and Barbara had thirteen children. They were Benjamin, Elizabeth who died in infancy and John who lived and is buried at Middletown, PA. The fourth was a second Elizabeth who was married to William Pannebecker and is buried at Gouglersville, PA. Her nephew was Franklin Schnader the gun barrel maker. The fifth was Catherine who was married to John Bucher and lived near Muddy Creek Church and lies buried there. The sixth, Sarah, remained unmarried. She reached the age of 85 years and is buried at Center Church. The seventh, William, was married to a Miss Riemensnyder. One of his children was Anna, the wife of Henry Stauffer and the mother of his large family. Another was William Jr., the father of George, Mary and Laura Schneder. The eighth was Jacob, a prominent citizen of Terre Hill during its early history. The ninth was James who married a Susanna Kessler and lived on a farm near Alleghenyville in Berks County. He was the father of Franklin, the gun barrel maker, Richard, John and James Schnader II. There was also Maria, wife of John Schweitzer. The tenth was Mary who died as an infant.
