Can’t find a birth in America, but a number in England.
Oh, did you find a birth record for Catherine in England? Does it list her parents?
There a number in England that might be her. I think might be your best bet
I was doing a search for Catherine on but the Catherine Hodges listed in the search results don't match her birth year.

"Tennessee, County Marriages, 1790-1950," database with images, FamilySearch( : 17 October 2017), Francis Williams and Catharine Hodges, 06 Dec 1806; citing Grainger, Tennessee, United States, Marriage, p. , Tennessee State Library and Archives, Nashville and county clerk offices from various counties; FHL microfilm 1,358,478.

If you look at the original sheet there was a Caleb Reece who co-signed the marriage bond.

I wonder how Caleb Reece would be connected.

Greta, I encourage you to look into Quaker records. I found much good information there. So many Williams families. Hard not to get bad information. I wish you much luck in your search. Please feel free to contact me here. I don't know how much help I can be, but the more contacts you have, the better the odds are of finding something you can use.
