In Memory of Catherine Cougar

Pioneer wife and mother. Born in New Jersey 1732. Captured by Indians 1744, in Berks Co. PA and for five years held a captive at and near this place. Sold to French Canadian traders she served in Canada for two years. Finally gaining her freedom, she returned to her former home only to find her parents gone and herself homeless. She lived with her friends 1756, when she married George Goodman who died in 1795. With her son John came to Ohio in 1798, and by a strange fortune settled on this spot where she had been held a captive while with the Indians. Died in 1801, and lies here in the place chosen by herself and cleared by her own hands.
This monument erected to her memory by her great grandchildren in 1915.
