From Corona, California Newspaper: The 100th birthday of Mrs. Catherine Gray Richardson McGuire Haycock was celebrated with a happy reunion and party at the home of her son Frank McGuire with whom she has made her home for the past 23 years. Mrs. McGuire was born in Boone
Township, HARRISON COUNTY, INDIANA, April 5, 1810.
She was the eldest of 12 children. Her father lived to the ripe old age of 105 years. Her father's name was Thomas Ellis Gray. She was married young and became the mother of 9 children. Mr. McGuire was killed in a battle in the Civil War. Mrs. McGuire had 34 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren at the time of her 100th birthday. Her first marriage was to William Richardson, in Harrison County, Indiana on December 31, 1940.
She died in 1918 in Corona, California. I am researching this family and would appreciate any information anyone can share. Thanks....
