About Catharine Atterbury

Catharine Boudinot Atterbury (1781-1877)

Catherine and Elisha Boudinot�s eldest surviving daughter, Catharine, was born on December 2, 1781. While still living at her parent�s house in Newark, she was the secretary for the Newark Female Charitable Society, the second oldest private charitable organization in the country.

From her writing, she seems to have been very affected by the religious revival of the time period. She married Lewis Atterbury (1779-1872), a merchant, on September 12, 1803 and had nine children with him: Mary S., Lewis, John, Edward, Elisha Boudinot, Benjamin Bakewell, Julia Maria, William Wallace and Francis.

The Atterburys lived in Baltimore, Maryland shortly after they were married, but later letters from Catharine Boudinot Atterbury place her in Whitestone, Long Island and New York.
