There is only one record for Catherine Maney. Catherine would have been about seventeen at the end of the Civil War.[i] In 1870, Catherine was living in Murfreesboro in the same household as Andrew and Henrietta Maney.[ii] It is likely that Catherine was Andrew and Henrietta’s daughter and had been enslaved by the Jones family prior to emancipation. It is uncertain what happened to Catherine Maney after 1870.
