Notes:

!NOTES:Marty Grant's 6th Great Grand Parent.;


!NOTE:Some researcher's concluded that Rebecca, wife of William CATHEY, was Rebecca HOLEMAN and that they were 1st cousins. However, research has shown that another William CATHEY did marry a Rebecca HOLEMAN in Shennandoah Co, VA and that this William CATHEY's father (William CATHEY Sr) was married to Rebecca's mother, making them "step siblings". These CATHEY's did not come to NC but were of a very similar age to my William CATHEY here. Did those earlier researchers find these records and get confused? A Rebecca PATTON married a CATHEY in Burke Co, NC ca 1785. No male CATHEY from that area is known to have had a wife named Rebecca except for my William. If these are the right ones, then Rebecca PATTON is the 2nd wife of Major William CATHEY. The first wife is unknown, but died ca 1784. William CATHEY's children show a 5 year gap between 1784 and 1789, so this could be correct;
