SOURCES: Catharine's year of birth was noted in the St Clement parish cemetery listings and her month and year of birth were noted on the 1900 census. Because another Hempen in Pike County had been born in Herssum, Holte, that parish's records were checked also for Catharine and a corresponding birth/baptism entry was found there for her. Catharine's parents' names, as noted above, were taken from that record. Information about her death, husband and children was taken from the book St Clement Parish, Bowling Green, MO, Family of Faith, 1871-1996.
