Catherine was born in Prince Edward County, Ontario in 1809.  She married Stephen Bowerman in 1829 in Prince Edward Co. and she died in 1883 in Meaford, Grey Co. Ontario.  Word of mouth states that her parents were Elijah and Sarah Hyatt Cunningham but I haven't been able to prove this.  I have tried numerous avenues but with no luck.

Did not find her parents at familysearch.org . Assume they married at Prince Edward County, ON, Canada, where their daughter was born.

Thanks for getting back to me .  I have tried many , many sources and can find no mention of her parents.  I do have the marriage record for Elijah and Sarah Hyatt.  This is one brickwall that may take many more years to break down.
