She is a widow who has had five children with four still living. She is a member of the household of her brother, John Taylor, age 64, and his family.

(However, the same John Taylor and family are shown in Henderson County in the 1880 Census, and that same child is shown as born in Tennessee, not Mississippi. Catherine Bedwell is not in the household in 1880).
