      Text: CATHERINE NOGA HARDY was born in Indiana. She was named Catherine Noga Persinger. Her parents were James and Mary Gillespie Persinger. In 1830, Catherine's family was living in Perry County, IN. She was born two years later in 1832, so probably, she was born there.
      In 1836, after a board maker had insulted Catherine's mother, he was killed by Catherine's father. That night the family fled Indiana and went to San Augustine County, in the Republic of Texas. They left all of their possessions in Indiana even their surname. Now their surname was Hardy.
      Later, they moved on a land grant in Jasper County which became a part of Newton County. The Hardy Cemetery is located on this land. Probably both Catherine's father and mother are buried there, although no gravestone marks their graves. Perhaps, that is where Catherine and her husband, James Weeks, were buried since their gravestones also have not been found. Catherine and James were married in Newton County on Oct. 20, 1847. They had five children - Mary Ursula, James Robert, Lewis Cooper, Martha Ann, and Sarah Jane.
      Catherine's husband was killed after 1861 and then she married William Camron Cooper on March 12, 1863 in Newton County. They had one child, a daughter named Joanner.
