bullet  Events:

1. Occupation: England. 4 5 6 According to her son William at Pacaltsdorp, She was a talented artist, and was related to the famous English painter, Turner

2. Historical. 7 P26 of source states that The great English landscape artist, Joseph Malford William Turner, was born in London on 23 April 1775. He was the son of a village barber, became famous and rich, and died in London on 19 Dec 1851, and was burried in St.Paul's Cathedral. The artistic talent later established by some of William and Johanna's grandchildren may be attributed to their illustrious artist relative.

A second source the Brainy Encyclopedia states as follows:-

J.M.W. Turner
Joseph Mallord William Turner, born in Covent Garden, London on April 23 (exact date
1775, died December 19 1851. English Romantic landscape artist.
.. ..
His father WIliam was a Wig.
maker who later became a barber.The Grand Canal, Venice
His mother, Mary Marshall, a Painted 1835
housewife, became increasingly...,
mentally unstable during his early years, (perhaps in part due to the early death of Turner's younger sister in 1786). She died in 1804, having been committed to a mental asylum.
Since Catherine was born about 37 years before the Painter, and her family relation to him has still to be established, the possibility of subsequent generations from her being imbued with his great talent is somewhat tenuous, but cannot be discounted.


Catherine married William ANDERSON, son of George ANDERSON and Margaret TAYLOR, on Jul 5, 1768 in Saint Botolph, Bishopsgate, London, U.K..1 (William ANDERSON was born on Jul 14, 1724 in Aberdeen, Scotland 2 3, christened on Jul 21, 1724 in Wagley, Newhills Aberdeen,8 died on Feb 26, 1789 in London England 2 3 and was buried in Bunhill Fields, London 4.)
