Maria was born about 1803 which means that she was born when her mother was about 14 or 15. Because of this she has been assigned to other people over the years but backing documentation including an affadavit signed by Catherine in 1838 says "John Burnham who claims a part of the estate of the late Capt. John Dochsteder is not her son but the son of her late sister Mary Burnham and the only surviving heir of the late Mary Burnham. Since Mary Burnham Farr was still alive at this point, this can not be referring to her. By some researchers estimations, Catherine was likely born about 1787.
