About Mary Catlett



"You all might be interested in reading a newly published article by Margaret Amundson, C.G., where she states, "...Madison did not give the first name for Catlett's Gaines' wife. Yet one does not have to search too long in the genealogical literature to find that the wife of John2 is called Elizabeth Gaines. This enjoys wide circulation in many genealogies compiled over many decades. However, if one consults the actual records related to Daniel Gaines they will find no evidence he had a daughter named Elizabeth. He did, however, have a daughter Mary. And John2 Catlett was married to a Mary in 1706 as the Essex County deed indicates." [Reference: THE VIRGINIA GENEALOGIST, pp. 165-166, Vol. 43, No. 3, July-September 1999, edited and published by John Frederick Dorman, "Who Was the Catlett Father of Mary Haslewood's Children?", by Margaret R. Amundson, C.G., Walkersville, Maryland]."
