Married James Baynum on/abt. Apr 14 1807 in Worcester Co, Maryland.
After daughter, Catron's birth (Feb 1817), the Baynum family left Maryland in the spring and arrived at Limestone (now Maysville, Ky) and moved to Nicholas County about 5 miles from Millersburg and 3 miles from Carlisle on Brush Creek. Left there about 1 year later and moved to Pendleton County near Falmouth for about 3 years. Tax records support this. Purchased 155 acres on east fork of 12 Mile Creek in Campbell County in 1823 and were living there by 1826 if not sooner.

The family included:
James Baynum - her husband
Catherine - herself
Belitha T - her son
Josiah D - her son
Charlaitty - her daughter
Catron Z - her daughter
William III - her nephew (son of William Baynum II and Elizabeth Carey, both deceased). James Baynum was made his guardian.

The 1820 census of Pendleton County, Ky supports the above.

Also her nephew, James Baynum (brother of Wm III) came as well but settled in Augusta, Bracken Co, Ky.
He can be found in the 1830 census there.

Catherine married James Baynum on 14 Apr 1807 in Worcester Co., MD. (James Baynum died before 1850 in KY.)
