In response to a query by A.J. Mellott on 23 March 2000:
After considerable research I believe Catherine was married to a man named William Crosly (Crossley) in Frederick Co., MD. One of the few records that showed them together was a deed dated 12 April 1770 in which William sold land in Frederick County to a Samuel Beall. Catherine waived her dower rights. I believed that she died in the same year her mother did, 1771, in Frederick County. The only child of theirs that I know of was a son named Thomas who married Ann Wilkins in Washington Co., MD. on 31 August 1801.
And from the Merlet-Marlet Family page:
Catherine Melott (also written Malott), the daughter of Theodorus Melott and his second wife, Catherine de La Chaumette, was born in either, Middlesex County, New Jersey or Prince George's County, Maryland.
She was later married in Frederick County, Maryland to a man named William Crosly (also written Crossly). Confirmation that Catherine was married to William Crosly was found in a deed dated 12 April 1770, which showed William selling land in Frederick County to Samuel Beall. In that document, Catherine waived her dower rights.
Catherine died in Frederick County, Maryland in 1771.
