    Notes 
    • According to the Caitlyn Simpson Family Tree Catherine Ulrich was married to George Dilling Hoover on 24 June 1869 in Jefferson Township Wayne County, Indiana. This has not been proven by sourcing, and needs to be verified. Given the name of Hoover, within the county of Wayne, it is likely that this individual was a Quaker. Catherine was a devout Catholic according to family histories provided to Ron Snowden.
      ===
      The marriage of Catherine to George Dilling Hoover does not appear to be correct. There is a Catherine Teeter Ulrich found who was born in 1848 in Wayne County and died in 1928 in Huntington County, Indiana. She had a son named William Henry Hooer, b. 1870 and d. 1945. I believe this marriage was reported in error.
