Note we do not believe that her husband Abraham Criss died in 1880. We think many people have possibly mixed this up with another Abraham who was married to Catherine in another county in Indiana. We have documentation showing that he was dead by 1860 at the latest. There was an Abraham Chriss who was married to Catherine Templeton they lived in Decatur County and believe whomever wrote this article mistook him for Catherine Anspach's husband. Though we have no proof of this, its just a possible solution for the wrong date of death in this notice
