Catherine (…), whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), was born say 1725.1 She died at Henrico Co., Virginia, before 1823, when she is not mentioned in the settlement of William Miller's estate.2

Catherine married (1) Charles Lambert, about 1745;3 she married (2) William Miller at Henrico Co., 28 March 1815. The ancestry of both husbands is unknown (or not traced here).4

Several researchers have concluded she was a daughter of Michael Woods, immigrant settler of Blair Park in Albemarle Co., Virginia. However, she is not mentioned in his will (1762, Albemarle Co.), and Charles Lambert is only associated with the Woods family when he witnesses the son's (another Michael) will in Boutecourt Co. in 1777. No relationship is given in that record.
