Birth: 09 MAY 1798 in Pigeon Valley, Buncombe, North Carolina, USA 1

Burial Place Bethlehem Baptist Cemetery
Death: 24 JUL 1860 in Pettis, Missouri, USA 1
Mary Helen Haines notes:
Rebecca moved with the Catheys to Missouri sometime around 1815. Her first husband appears to be Eli Newman Henry, who died bef. 1825 when she married James McCormick. Most records say she married Eli Newman Henry in Missouri; however, there are no marriage records for these two in either place that I have found. More than likely they all were traveling together and were living in the Ste. Genevieve area of Missouri for a period of time before moving on to Cooper Co.
I am not sure why the Cooper County Bethlehem cemetery shows her as Rebecca Henry being buried there, when she was not. She is buried at the Bethlehem Baptist Cemetery in Pettis Co. next to her second husband.
