!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:

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. William had two sisters who married Pattons during this time, so his wife could be of the same family?
