GORE, Catherine (Mowry)

    Johnstown Tribune, 19 Oct 1880, Contributed by Lynne Canterbury


Mrs. Catherine Gore, one of the oldest and most esteemed citizens of Johnstown, died at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. James Robb, in the Fifth Ward, at a late hour yesterday afternoon, at the advanced ago of over eighty-eight years. She was not afflicted with any organic disease, but had been failing gradually during several years past, and her death resulted naturally from extreme old age.

The deceased; whose maiden name was Catherine Mowry, was the relict of Mr. John Gore, deceased, and was the mother of Messrs. Henry, John, and Thomas Gore, well-known citizens, and of Mrs. James Robb, of Kernville. She was born in Montgomery County, this State, in July, 1792, and removed with her parents to Bedford County while yet a girl. There she met and was married to John Gore, to whom she bore four children. The family removed to the southern part of Cambria County about the year 1830, and resided in a house which stood on what is now well known as "Frazer's corner." Mr. Gore died in 1856, and the widow soon afterward went to live with her only daughter. She had been a member of the Presbyterian Church for more than sixty years, and lived a consistent Christian life. Her death is sincerely mourned not only by her children and other relatives, but by the community in general.
