Yes, I feel that Caty was married to a BROWN. I have this information that most likely connects these families. A William Brown sold to John Trover the following:
William Brown to John Trover
October 17, 1823
Know all men by these presents that I Wm. Brown of Christian County, Kentucky for and in consideration of the sum of $200 to me in hand paid by John Trover of the same county and state the receipt of which sum of $200 is hereby acknowledged have given granted bargained sold conveyed and delivered and by these presents do give grant bargain sell convey and deliver to the said John Trover the following property to wit:
14 head of cattle

40 head of hogs
2 beds and furniture
1/2 doz windor chairs
1/2 doz split bottomed chairs
2 barspear plows

Nevertheless upon this condition of the said William Brown which pay or cause to be paid when due a note given by said John Trover to the President Directors of Commissioner of the Bank of Kentucky for the sum of $100 and 75 due on the 16th day of this month payable to the Hopkinsville branch of said bank the said $175 having been borrowed by said Trover from said bank for my use and also pay or cause to be paid to said J. Trover when he may demand it the sum of $20.25 which I justly owe said Trover on an account this day settled then this instrument and everything in it contained be ceased and under no effect but if said Brown fails or refuses to make the above mentioned payments to be and remain in full force power and effect.
It is certainly possible that Caty Trover was married to William Brown. It is likely too that they had a daughter named Sarah or Sally and she was the person who last took care of John Trover prior to his death. John wrote his will and codicil naming Sally Brown as an heir. She was to get equal share of property with his son William Smith Trover and the three son-in-laws too.
