     She was probably one of the two females age 16 to 26 listed in the household of her father, Elisha Flora, in the 1810 Federal Census of Meadsville, Halifax Co., Virginia.2
     Catharine married Matthias D. Ohiordan on 9 Oct 1830 in Halifax Co., Virginia.1
Research Note, 23 Mar 2016:
The marriage record found for Catharine shows her husband's name as "Matthias D. Ohiordan or Okiordan." No further record has been found for either of them under either of those surnames or variations.

There was a Mathias D. O'riordan born in Halifax Co., Virginia, who enlisted in the U.S. Army 22 Jan 1867 at Alcatraz Island, California, and was discharged 22 Jan 1870 at the same place. He is shown as age 23, implying he was born about 1844. Another record shows a Mathias D. O'Riordan, farmer from Virginia, enlisted 13 Mar 1863 in Roseburg, Oregon and discharged 29 Aug 1865 at Ft. Vancouver. He is shown as age 29 when he enlisted, implying he was born about 1834. The physical descriptions of the two are very similar, so it seems very possible they were the same man.

One or the other, or both if they are the same man, may well have been their son. However no records for Catharine or her husband have been found under that surname either.1,3,4
