      Rice, Catherine, Mrs. "Kitty"
      Interred: March 17, 1888
      Plot: 10 3 No. 2, South center, no marker
      Died 3/17/1888, age 97y, 8m, 5d

      *****************************

      She was of English and Irish descent. When she was six years old her parents moved to Tennessee, where she married Ebenezer Rice, a native of Vermont. When Mr. Rice was a very small boy his father was sent from the East to Tennessee as a missionary to the Indians. In the fall of 1833 he removed with his family to Morgan County, Illinois, where he made it his home until his death, in 1858.

      Mrs. Rice, his widow, afterward died at the residence of her son William, near Saratoga, California, March 17, 1888, aged nearly ninety-eight years. There were twelve children in her family, of whom three are now living. William Rice made his home with his parents until he was twenty-five years of age.

      *****************************

      Tennessee State marriage license lists her nickname as "Caty". I am unsure if "Caty" is correct, or if it is just how the person writing it spelled it based on a TN accent!
