The Generations of Thomas Pine Petznick

Notes for Robert Cather

"Robert was a teamster and was proud of his horses and Winchester wagons. The Winchester wagon had more finish and style than the Pennsylvania wagon, the bed-rails more curving, and the end-gates more sloping. Robert hauled grain and goods between several markets, including Winchester, Alexandria, Baltimore, and the upper Shenandoah Valley below Natural Bridge. Robert and his family migrated from Frederick County in 1823 fro Brownsville, Pennsylvania, where the Old National Road crossed the Monongahela River. In 1826, they moved to a farm in Clinton County, Ohio. Later, about 1837-1838 they resettled on a farm four miles west of Anderson, Indiana, where they died."
