    Notes 
    • CENSUS DATA: In the 1850 United States Federal Census, Catharine McAlister, 3, born abt 1847 in GA is shown living with her parents and siblings in Columbus, Muscogee, Georgia. See full 1850 census record in notes for Catherine's father, Robert McCollister.

      CENSUS DATA: Andrew J. McCollister, son of Robert and Sarah Bailey McCollister, is shown in the 1860 census record of Carroll Co., Ga. 6th Dist., Villa Rica Post office @ line 17. Shown living with Andrew, age 34, are his wife, Louisa, age 33; his son Thomas (Thomas Marion), age 8; his dau. Sarah C. E., age 5; his dau. Josephine, age 1. More interesting is that also living in the household was a female named Catherine McCollister, age 12.
      --------------------------------------------------------------
      Based on Carroll County, Ga records, Inferior Court Minutes, Book AA, P. 202, this is Catherine McCollister, Andrew J.'s sister who had moved with her parents, Robert and Sarah, and some of her siblings to Muscogee, Co. Ga. in 1849. The Carroll County Inferior Court Minutes, Book AA, reads as follows:
      "Carroll Court of Ordinary, December Term 1859. It appearing to the Court that Andrew McAllister of said County has made application for letters of guardianship of Catherine McAllister a minor orphan of Robert McCallister deceased and it appearing that notice of said application has been published according to laws, and no objections having been made and the said Andrew McAllister having given Bond in the sum of Two hundred dollars with John J. Davis as his security and taken oath prescribed by Law. It is therefore ordered that the said Andrew McAllister be and he is appointed Guardian of the aforesaid Catherine and that letters of Guardianship be issued to him accordingly. J. M. Blalock, Ordinary."
      --------------------------------------------------------
      According to grave marker and cemetery records at Linwood Cemetery in Columbus, Ga., a Catherine is buried in Thomas McCollister's plot. Cemetery records and grave marker etching shows Catherine was a sister to Thomas and was born on August 14, 1847. The birth date would be about right for the 12 year age shown in the 1860 census. The records show she died April 18, 1888. Since she was living with her brother Andrew J. McCollister and his family in 1860 indicates that her parent's, Robert and Sarah, were both deceased by December 1859.
