Catharine was buried either in the Wheeler Cemetery or a small unknown cemetery (maybe Harlan Cemetery). In 1990, this tombstone along with the one for James Wheeler and Martha Harlan Wheeler were sitting on Dick Spencer's front porch. Dick lives on a farm next to the Wheeler Cemetery in Macoupin County, IL.

{The book "History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family", by Alpheus H. Harlan, page 650 states she was born May 1, 1809 and she died July 15, 1845 and is buried "near Gillespie". If her birth date is calculated from her tombstone it matches the birth date given in the book.}
