Rev. Andrew Cather

Fredericksburg, VA, June 28 -- Rev. Andrew Cather, of Prince William county, died last week.  He is survived by his widow and several children.

* Although the Baltimore Sun seems convinced that Rev. Cather was buried in their city, the funeral was held in Philadelphia which implies he may have been interred in the Asbury M.E. church cemetery.
