  • Born: Abt 1849, Franklin Twp., Adams, PA 1

  Noted events in her life were:

1. Census in 1850 in Franklin Twp., Adams, PA. 1 Peter Beecher, laborer, age 60, was living with Catherine, 58; his son, Josiah, laborer, 22; Elizabeth, 23; Ann M., 18; son Sam, 15; and two infants who are likely grandchildren: Mary C., 1 and a twin William, 1.

Peter has no real estate value, suggesting he was living on land owned by the previous neighbor, Eve Rife, age 57, a widower living with Jonas Oner[?], 21; Elenora Figley, 21; and Cornelius Beecher, laborer, 9 [there is a 6 before the 9 but it appears to be crossed out.] Everyone was born in Pennsylvania.
