Catherine Huston Thomas Walburn is another brick wall. I have her birthplace as MD 1783 with no source. She first married Robert Walburn and had my 4xg-grandmother Experience 'Pera' Walburn in 1816. Some trees have birthplaces in Xenia, Greene Co, some Green Twp, Clark Co. I believe the record for Catherine Thomas and Robert Waldron 20 Nov 1806 in 'Kentcky Marriages 1802-1850' is them. Robert Walburn died in 1819 and rests in Clark Co. Catherine remarries 4 years later in Clark Co, listed in the Miami Valley Index.

Still I can't find Obadiah Handley or Catherine on the census.
Hi Marc,

I *think* Obadiah & Catherine Handley were living in Fayette County, Ohio (one county away from Clark County where they were married) in 1830.

1830 Federal Census:
Union Twp, Fayette Co, OH; page 317
Obadiah Handley (5 total)
1 white male 10 to 15 --> Robert Walburn (11)
1 white male 20 to 30 --> Obadiah (29)
1 white female 10 to 15 --> Pera Walburn (14)
1 white female 15 to 20 --> Mahala Walburn (15)
1 white female 40 to 49 --> Catherine (42)
NOTE: An Elizabeth Handley and a John Handley are listed on the same page.

The ages of the 1830 census above match the ages of a Obadiah & Catherine Handley that are buried in Rees Cemetery in Delaware Co, IN. Here's the FindAGrave links...

Catherine Handley; died 1867

Rev Obadiah E Hundley; died 1855
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg...GRid=32764308&

Here is a complete listing of the burials in Rees Cemetery by rows. (http://www.ingenweb.org/indelaware/C...ds-complt.html) Catherine & Obadiah are buried next to each other in about the middle of Row 8. The next row back (Row 7) in about the middle is Mary Eliza Heaton (daughter of your William & Pera). In Row 6 is your William & Pera Heaton, so they are all right there together.

After Obadiah died in 1855, Catherine could have married Edmund Aldridge/Alldredge...

Edmund Alldredge died 30 Mar 1858 (born 1784). He is buried in Delaware Co in Heath Cemetery. If he left a will, your Catherine *may* be mentioned in it. Here's a link to his FindAGrave. It mentions his 4th marriage to Jane Hundley...
