A little more info about Catharine Grow, my 2nd great-grandmother.
Mary Catherine Hartley (25 Mar 1837-19 Feb 1938) was the d/o Isaac HARTLEY
and Catharine CLARK. She married John Henry GROW (1835-16 Oct 1865) 16 Jan
1858 Jackson Co., OH. John Henry GROW is buried in the Marietta National
Cemetery in Marietta, Cobb Co., GA.
They were the parents of 4 children:
1. George Washington GROW m. Sarah E. KIGHT
2. Sarah Catherine GROW m. Jonathan REISINGER
3. Eliza Ann GROW (my great-grandmother) m. John Wesley ALLEN
4. John Wesley GROW m. Ida Idora RUSSELL
Please contact me if you would like any additional information on the GROW
family. I hope to start a single surname study within the several months.
