  • Notes 
    • From Genealogy of the Meyer Family by Henry Meyer. 1890, page 118.
      Catharine (John Jacob, Jacob. Gr. Meyer) was married to George Meyer, her father's cousin, of Pennsvalley, Pa. She was born Dec. 2, 1788; died March 13, 1858; buried at Aaronsburg, Pa.

      From Genealogy of The Morr Family. Julia Morr and her Descendants - chapter IX
      Catherine (Julia, Andrew,) was born in Penn's township, Northumberland County, Pa., near Freeburg, December 2, 1788; died March 13, 1858. She was married to George Meyer,* her cousin. He was born at Campbellstown, Lebanon county, Pa., March 25, 1782 ; died January 1, 1854 ; both are buried in the Reformed Cemetery, Aaronsburg, Pa. Catherine was a woman of small stature; was of a very kind, benevolent disposition, and greatly esteemed by her friends and neighbors for her many noble qualities.

      * George Meyer came into Penn's Valley, Centre County, Pa., in 1837, locating on Pine Creek, south of Aaronsburg, Pa., where he purchased a farm and a mill site on which a grist mill was erected. (Property of John George Morr.) Mr. Meyer was a man of stout physical frame and great strength, but was inferior in that respect to his giant brothers, Henry, John and Michael. The Meyers were nearly all fine singers; many of them have been from generation to generation instructors in music, both vocal and instrumental, and have been leaders of choirs in the churches of the neighborhoods in which they resided. George Meyer led singing in the Reformed Church, Campbellstown, Pa., from the time he was sixteen years of age (1798) until 1827 when he removed to the vicinity of Aaronsburg, Pa. He led the singing in the Reformed Church, Aaronsburg, from 1827-32. Mr. Meyer was passionately fond of the chase, and often in company with near relatives, and others, indulged in this exhilarating pastime. His place was a recognized headquarters of the sporting fraternity of the neighborhood, and among those who frequently visited them were the famous hunters of that period, the Roush brothers.
