Catherine or “Katie” Staley (1796-1879), d/o Peter II and Eve __, m. Jethro Fisher, on 1 May 1820, in Ohio, of Berkeley County, Virginia, and Allen County, Ohio

NICKNAME “KATIE”: From data sheet found by Delight Heckelman in a public library, while visiting in Lima, Ohio area, a photocopy of which was sent shb, Oct. 2002 (see father Peter’s notes, titled “CHILDREN”). –shb 30 Oct 2002

BIRTH/NAME: Information about Catherine is as listed on a worksheet of my mother, Ida-Rose L. Hall. According to her notes, Catherine was aged 16-25 in the 1820 census, so must have been born 1796-1806. Marriage information for Catherine is as listed on her worksheet. Sources listed: 1820 and 1850 census records and also LaFayette, Ohio cemetery records. The year “1796” was given for Catherine’s birth on a report, “Descendants of Peter Staley I,” sent shb by Dan Myers (who, when I wrote him, deferred to the research of Katherine Staley, from whom he says he got much of his information–shb). –shb, 8 Mar 2000.

1816–FAMILY MIGRATED FROM VIRGINIA TO OHIO WITH HALLS AND FISHERS? As posted on by Dora Baer (information about John Henry Kious,m who married Mary Caplinger), found and forwarded to shb, 29 Jan 2007, by Kathryn Lones Pyles [full caps mine–shb], indicates that John Henry Kious (1775-1834) “came to America from Wurttenburg, Germany, at an early age.  He married Mary Caplinger of Samuel Caplinger ancestry.  Samuel lived around Philadelphia 1750; died 1769.  John, Mary and three children (Katherine, John Henry and Solomon) came in a caravan from Finistree [sic–shb], Virginia, with the Morris, STALEY, HALL AND FISHER FAMILIES, in the spring of 1816, to a seventy acre patch of wilderness on the west bank of the Scioto River, about seven miles south of Columbus, Ohio; nearby was the Chillicothe-Columbus Indian Trail which is now Route 104.  John and two sons immediately erected a log cabin nearby.  Son Zeniah was born in this cabin in 1817; Mary died that same year and was buried one half mile west on wilderness land purchased by John, thus establishing the KIOUS Graveyard.” [The rest of this seems to be Kious family history–shb.]  –shb 29 Jan 2007 [Note:  I looked for this location on my atlas.  It looks like this seventy-acre “patch” was close to today’s Circleville (east of the Scioto) and near to today’s Pickaway County, with today’s Ross and Fayette counties located south and west.  Southeast of Circleville is a town named Hallsville–shb.] –shb 29 Jan 2007

1820, MAY 1–MARRIAGE: Date from genealogical worksheet of my mother, Ida-Rose L. Hall (see above), which would place at age 24, if her birth year as 1796 is correct. Marriage connection to Jethro Fisher made by shb from search (again) of the 1850 Census, where Catherine is listed as wife of Jethro, with 80 yr. old widowed mother Eve Staley living with them (see Jethro’s notes). The marriage date, place from Katherine Staley Descendants Report of Mar 2000. –shb 12 Apr 2000

1850 CENSUS, JACKSON, ALLEN, OHIO–CARING FOR MOTHER:  See mother Eve’s 1850 notes for census detail that indicates that Catherine (age 54, born Virginia) was living with her husband Jethro Fisher (55, born Virginia), son Peter (25, born Ohio), dau. Elizabeth (12, born Ohio) and “Eve Staley, age 80, born Virginia.”  Katherine Staley writes, of this census, in letter to shb, 18 Jun 2004, that “[This Census] states Eve was born in Virginia, but I believe Eve (Eva) was born in Germany [we are now looking more closely at Pennsylvania as a possibility–shb].  Catherine Fisher is daughter of Eve.”  –shb 20 Jun 2004

1879, OCTOBER 27–DEATH:  I only had that Catherine died “aft. 31 Jul 1850,” so was interested to see her death given as “27 Oct 1879 in Allen County, Ohio,” on the Charles Glenn Petersen website that he invited me to visit, 27 Feb 2005.  I don’t have his documentation for this date.  –shb
