      CATHERINE DONNELL . . . was b. in Bourbon County, Kentucky, August 13, 1794. Married September 15, 1814, to Moses Mathers (second son of Thomas Mathers), who was b. February I, 1787, and d. April 10, 1860. They moved to Livonia, Ind., in 1815 and to Orange County in 1816, where he entered land in Orangeville Township in 1816. This land remained in the family until 1911. Tradition says that when they moved from Livonia to Orange County that Catherine rode horseback with the baby Elizabeth Jane in her arms and the spinning wheel tied to the pommel of the saddle. Moses walked by her and carried the axe. That they were people of literary tastes was indicated by the care with which they preserved all pamphlets or books that came into their possession. A collection of almanacs, which they made, dating back to 1792 and containing much valuable information concerning the early post roads, is still in existence. Nine children:
