ANOTHER PIONEER GONE
Catherine, daughter of Peter and Betsy
Bish, was born in Rockingham county, Virginia, February 11, 1807, and died
January 14, 1888, aged 80 years, 11 months, and 3 days. She removed with
her parents to Montgomery county, Va., where she was joined in marriage to
John Cain with whom she spent 63 years of happy wedded life.

13 children—6 sons and 7 daughters, grandmother of 69 grandchildren and
great-grandmother of 55 great-grandchildren. Two of her daughters, 22 of
her grandchildren and 7 of her great-grandchildren had preceded her to the
