!NOTES:Marty Grant's 4th Great Grand Father;


!FAMILY BIBLE:William and Elizabeth (Bryson) Cathey Family Bible,or perhaps this was his brother James Cathey's family bible. A notation on one page attests that James Sr copied that record in 1832.
This is a really old King James Bible using the old style letter S that looked like an F. One page contains births of William and Elizabeth's family. Another page contains the births of William's brother James Cathey's children. Another page contains the deaths of William and James's father and siblings. It seems likely some pages were lost as there are no marriages listed. This record was shared with me by Guy G. Davenport of FL in the late 1980's, I believe:

* Age doesn't match, but should fit here.
** No way to know which one was listed and which wasn't. Then again, many of the boys are in the wrong age groups so it stands to reason the census taker got the data from a neighbor instead of a family member with first hand knowledge of the ages of everyone;
