Isaac McDill, Washington Co., MD

According to a Memoriam written for Catharine McDill wife of Col. John Noble, she died 12 April 1867 in Columbus,OH.
The article says she was born at Funkstown, on Antietum Creek, near Hagerstown, MD Aug. 15th, 1793. Her father was Isaac McDill and died when she was quite young. Her mother was Catharine Wagoner.

In the 1790 census, the only Catharine McDill in Washington County, MD was the head of the household. No Isaac is listed. Also, there is guardianship record in Washington Co. which does not name Catharine McDill as a child of Isaac. The record is dated 25 June 1792. Isaac is said to have died Dec. 1791. How could this Catharine, b. 1793 have been a daughter of Isaac and Catharine McDill?
