Catherine Nester, b 3 Feb 1862, d 13 Jul 1896, bur Most Blessed Sacrament Cem, Bally, Washington Twp, Berks Co.  One
.                 source said she m William M. Adam/Adams.  This came from trees.ancestry.com, owner William Beers.  This is an error, since
.                 the Catherine who married William Adams was living in Northampton Co, Pa in 1900 and d 1946, and had m(1)
.                 Nester (#P1).  One source said she was Catherine Helferich (Kate) Nester, d/o Nicholas Helferich.  Kate Nester, d/o Nicholas
.                 and Mary, m 11 Feb 1888 Berks Co to William M. Adam, s/o John and Magdalena Adam.
.                 She could have been the widow of
George Washington Nester (#2214), b 1861, d 1882, who had wife "Hettie", age 16, in
.                 the 1880 census.  "Hettie" not located in the 1900 census.
.                 There was a Catherine Helfrich,8 Pa, d/o Peter and Charlotte Helfrich in the 1870 Berks Co census, and she was Kate,18 Pa,
.                 in the 1880 census with this family.  Otherwise Catherine/Kate Helfrich isn't located in the 1870 or 1880 census.  Daniel
.                 Nester (
Daniel E. Nester (#2213)) was living with this family in 1880, and  perhaps Catherine was briefly married to him,
.                 but this would be highly unlikely, to have married her between the census, dated 11 Jun 1880, and his marriage to Mary Hel-
.                 frich 2 days later.
.                 Nicholas Helfrich, b 1850, was Peter's brother and had a dau Katie, b Dec 1881, and this Nicholas couldn't be Catherine
.                 Helfreich Nester's father.

.                 Not located in 1850 or 1860, but there was a Rebecca Nester,62 Pa, in Knox Co in 1850, so this may actually be Rebecca, who
