M. Catherine Myers

The picture of this  over a century old tombstone was taken at St. Mary's Cemetery in Sandusky, Ohio. M. Myers was born with the surname Walter, but she married a man with the surname Myers, sometimes spelled Meyers. She was born on November 21, 1863, while the Civil War was still ongoing, and she died as a young woman on October 9, 1888. By browsing through the digitized images of St. Mary's Church records, available at FamilySearch in the collection of church records from the Toledo Diocese, I came across a baptism record of M. Catherine Myers. She was baptized in December of 1863, the daughter of Richard Walter and Marie Anton Walter. I believe the initial M stands for Mary, which was often used as a first name for females baptized in the Catholic faith.

Rest in peace.
