Catherine Armstrong Dorsey's mother
Posted by: John McBride (ID *****8987) Date: December 07, 2012 at 12:08:04

Anybody have any information about this woman's birth record or mother?

Catherine J. Armstrong
b 1857 Texas
d 1888, buried in Fannin County, TX
Married George Robert Dorsey in 1876, Fannin Co., TX

I have her in these records:
1860 Census, Fannin Co., Tx, (with dad John, no mother)
1870 Census, Fannin Co., Tx, (with dad and step mom Mary)
1880 Census, Fannin Co., Tx, (with husband George) grave marker in Virginia Point cemetery
Marriage Record in

I don't think Mary is her biological mother since:
1. Step-mom Mary is only 12 years older than Catherine's older sister Mary
2. Step-mom Mary was born in Arkansas, and Catherine's mother in the 1880 census is listed as being born in Missouri.
3. Step-mom Mary was not listed in 1860 census with the family. She would have been 17.

Any information about her dad, John, would be appreciated too. I believe that this John Armstrong married Emeline Youree in Missouri in 1854, but I haven't been able to prove that.
