Other names for Catherine were Cathrine, Katherine and Kathrine.
1880 census lists that both her parents were born in Virginia
Research: It appears from records in the Lincoln National Memorial in Spencer Co.,
IN that Catherine Davis was married to Nathaniel Grigsby in Carroll Co., MO on
9 May 1856. However, in the Grigsby Memoriabilia 1779-1979 p. 259 the name was
Catherine Powers Davis. This would jive with other records that show Natty having
married Catherine Powers if she had formerly been married to a Davis. Carroll Co.,
MO records may say Nathaniel Grigsby to Catherine Davis.
Catherine married Nathaniel Grigsby, son of Reuben Davis Grigsby Sr. and Nancy Barker, on 9 May 1856 in Carroll County, Missouri. (Nathaniel Grigsby was born on 11 Oct 1811 in Nelson County, Kentucky, died on 16 Apr 1890 in Attica, Harper County, Kansas and was buried in Attica Cemetery, Attica, Harper County, Kansas.)
