The Catherine I am looking for is the one you mentioned in the latter half of your response, but is unlikely to be the person mentioned in the former part of your response.  Catherine Koch married Henry Kurz on September 13, 1883 in New Caslte, PA and then moved to Youngstown, OH.  Their children were Henry Kurz, Louis Kurz, Frederick Kurz and Katherine (Kurz) Davis. She died in Youngstown, OH on February 28, 1934 and is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in the same city.  Her uncle (according to the wedding announcment) was Christian Koch and, according to newspaper articles, their New Castle, PA wedding ceremony and reception was held at Christian's house.  According to the 1900 census, she would have been born around 1858 and her death certificate indicates that she was born in Germany (city omitted) and her father was Christian Koch (mother lkisted as unknown).  I don't know if the newspaper article or the death certificate mistakenly named Christian as her uncle or father.  Please let me know if you have any further information.
