Notes

1731 The Will of Dorothy Newberry, widow of Richard Newberry, carpenter, of the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, dated 7 April 1731/2, proved 1 June 1731, named sisters: Catherine Stout, Anne Hutchinson ...

Catherine Stout could be Catherine Simpson died 8 December, 1749 in Hunterdon, New Jersey, the wife of first, James Stout, and second, his cousin, Andrew (SIC: Samuel) Stout. Source: "Pioneers of Old Hopewell" by Ralph Ege.

"Neither history nor tradition has left us any further account of Catharine Simpson who was thus bereaved and left with this interesting family to rear and educate, but judging her by the characteristic traits of her family, she was above the average in intelligence and ability, and was equal to the emergency. At all events the bewitching charms of this fascinating widow of Amwell, proved absolutely irresistible to the Hopewell Samuel, or he would not have volunteered at the age of twenty to take her brood of six Stout stalwart sons under his sheltering wing. His eldest stepson was but four years his junior, but subsequent events proved that there had been good discipline in that household, and that the family had been reared in the wholesome atmosphere and environment which tends to develop just the kind of sturdy manhood which was one of the marked characteristics of this family of pioneers."

1727 James Stout dated his will 25 April in Amwell Hunterdon County, New Jersey. Named wife Catherine. Inventory by John Garrison. [8]
