Catherine McFarland: Birth: 12 FEB 1801.
Note: Mary Helen Haines notes: Jacob McFarland's first marriage would have taken place in Tennesee in Greene/Jefferson County. Jefferson County was created in 1782 and its marriage records start in 1798. I assume his first, and or second wife died and he then married Nancy Cathey in 1804 when he purchased land from George Cathey. The McFarlands did not move to Buncombe County before 1799.
Regarding the children: the son George W. McFarland born Oct. 18, 1809 may be incorrect, or he has become mixed up with George W. McFarland, born Jan. 25, 1809, son of James Ray McFarland.
Also, the marriage to Elizabeth Webb, and then the marriage to Nancy Cathey...yet there are children born before that marriage.
Buncombe County Deed Records: On April 20, 1804 Jacob McFarland purchases 65 acres on the east side of the Pigeon River from George Cathey. Vol. 8, p. 271. Haywood Co. is created out of Buncombe Co. in 1808.
Haywood Co. NC, County Court Pleas, Vol. C, p. 11, in June 15, 1812, Jacob McFarland was foreman of the Grand Jury, James McFarland served, and John McFarland, Esq. was a Justice. Dec. 1814, Jacob and James McFarland serving as grand jurors (p. 90). March session, 1815, Jacob is serving again, John McFarland Esq. is Justice.( p. 103)
Haywood County N.C. Deed Records: Book A, p. 363. On Sept. 19, 1815, Jacob McFarland sold to Daniel McDowell 67 acres on the east side of the Pigeon River, where he lives, for $700. The land intersects the said McFarland spring branch. George Cathey witnessed. This must have been shortly before the move to Missouri. (Daniel McDowell is the son of James McDowell, therefore a brother to Margaret McDowell who married David McFarland, Jacob's brother.)

Name: Jacob McFarland Birth Date: 21 Feb 1772 Death Date: 13 Oct 1846 hus. of Matilda (Fleming) McFarland; hus. of Nancy (Cathey) McFarland; (buried?) Note: Nancy Cathey was a dau. of George Cathey, a Revolutionary Soldier. These families came to St. Genevieve Co., Mo., in about 1816; lived there for two years; and in 1819 came to Cooper Co., where they lived out their lives. Cemetery: Reid Cemetery Description: Number 1 Also, called McFarland Cemetery Location: T-48-N; R-17-W; Section 25 About a mile from the new bridge on Route B, south, out of Boonville on a country lane not far from the Petite Saline Creek on the farm once owned by Ed (Jack) Melkersman is a cemetery about twenty feet square with an iron fence around it. On the gate is the name "McFarland". The farm is now owned by Henry Grathwohl. There are no visible tombstones inside this enclosure but on the outside was found one foot marker with the initials, J. McF. on it. It is our thinking that this is a marker for the grave of John S. or Jessie McFarland who had come to Cooper County between 1815 and 1820 after William McFarland, the first sheriff of Cooper County, who resided on the Byler farm now owned by Larry Lymer of the Rankin Mill Community. Other markers scattered around over an area of some fifty by seventy five feet were found that had not been broken beyond reading and these were: Cemetery Records of Cooper County, Missouri Volume VI
