Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Catherine VAN GUNDY

She signed a deposition for brother Jacob's pension application, verifying that he served in the Am Revolutionary War.

Why was she listed as head of the household in 1820? Where was Casper? The family was still in York but the census is too difficult to make out many names. Jacob Shrom was on the same page so perhaps Casper was counted there, taking of that family. Or perhaps he was sick or disabled and Catherine took over the duties of head.

1830 Was it this lady recorded as Mrs Catherine Shrum in Fairfield, Westmoreland Co, PA? If so, the family included only women: 1 female at age 10-15, 1 at 30-40, and 1 was 60-70.

Her death year is 1858 in DAR records.

Her baptismal sponsor, and probably the one she was named for, was Catherine Meilly.
