The Morris involved in my family is Sarah ("Sally") Twiford Morris, born Aug
8, 1797, died March 3, 1876. She married Jonathan Cathell (III) on July 28,
1814 (according to Ralph W. Cathell in "Records of the Cathell Family." She
is buried at Oak Hill Cemetery, Georgetown, District of Columbia. Her oldest
son, Jonathan Dennis Cathell, moved to Georgetown in the early 1840s and she
was with him late in life. I don't have any information at this time on her
parents; I haven't had much chance to search for her yet. Her husband was
the son of Jonathan Cathell Jr. and his wife, Betty Collins (probable widow
of Isaac Collins - but that's another story!).

Jonathan's family appear on the Sussex County, Delaware census 1820 - 1850.
He died in 1860 and I haven't found the family on that census. They lived in
the vicinity of present-day Laurel. Jonathan Jr. had moved there from
Worcester County Maryland at least by the 1790s as far as I can tell.

Any connection to your Morrises?

Susan

Jonathan and James Cathell MD-DC-VA 1700s
Posted by: Kari Nichols (ID *****1965) Date: July 18, 2004 at 06:09:30
  of 76

I'm looking for more statistics/information on this James Cathell and Jonathan Cathell Sr.. The lineage is briefly outlined below:

James Cathell, patented land in what is now Wicomico & Worcester Counties, MD as early as 1737; died in 1772.

Jonathan Cathell [Sr.], also patented land in Wicomico County, MD; also died in 1772 (was there an epidemic?)

Jonathan Cathell [Jr.], born in 1759, married Betty Collins abt. 1783, lived in Sussex County DE (just over the MD line); died 1806. Jonathan's the one that fought in the Revolutionary War and got written up in the endless DAR Patriot books.

Jonathan Cathell [III], b. 1790, married Sarah Twiford Morris, lived in near Laurel DE all his life, died Feb., 1860. He was a sea captain and a ship's carpenter.

Emma E.R. Cathell, b. Nov. 11, 1833; married Edwin Ball in Sept. 1864; died Oct. 1886.

Most of this information was from Ralph W. Cathell's book called "Records of the Cathell Family."

Can anyone go farther back? Any help would be appreciated.

Kari

In Reply to: Re: Jonathan and James Cathell MD-DC-VA 1700s by Susan Feulner of 76

I got the following information from "All Five of his Sons Fought in the American Revolution."

Jonathan Cathell emigrated from Dover, England to what is now Worcester County, MD in 1662. He had three sons: Laban, James Sr (died May 1772), and David.

Laban also had three sons, one named Josiah (1720-1789) and the other two names not mentioned.

Josiah had five sons (Josiah Jr, James, Laban, Levi, and Jonathan) , all of whom fought in the Revolution.

Is this the family you are interested in?

John

************** I have been reviewing the information I have collected from various sources for this family, and updated my database accordingly. I found a lot of discrepancies, particularly with dates, as shown in this timeline. (* = discrepancies): 1770-1772 Robert Sinclair b. in Inverness, Scotland * (1776-1780 Robert Sinclair b. in Inverness, Scotland) * Abt 1772 - Nancy McKenzie (wife) b. in Inverness, Scotland Bef 1794 - Marjarh King Sinclair b. in Scotland ** Abt 1794 - Daniel Sinclair b. in Inverness, Scotland 1796 - Robert purchased 438 ac on Patterson Creek, Hampshire Co., VA (Abt 1802 - Marjory/Marjorh Sinclair b. in VA) ** (Abt 1803 - Hugh Sinclair b. in Inverness, Scotland) *** Abt 1804 - Hugh Sinclair b. in MD *** (1802 - Alex Sinclair b. in ?) **** 1804 - Alexander Sinclair b. in MD **** 1809 - Robert Sinclair b. in Hampshire Co., VA 1812 - Hector Sinclair b. in VA 1814 - Jane Sinclair b. in VA 1816 - Nancy Sinclair b. in VA (The item in parentheses is the one that appears less believable to me.) It makes a big difference which one is correct, because it affects their migration pattern. The more believeable is that they came from Scotland > MD > VA. But if the alternate dates/places are correct, they came from Scotland > VA > Scotland > MD > VA. I would appreciate any information anyone can provide.
