Catherine Louise’s family lived in Huntersville, Franklin County, Indiana, and had ten children. Her father served in the Mexican-American War in the Cavalry and the Civil War in the Quartermasters Department. In civilian life he was a shoemaker. Catherine’s mother was one of the early pioneers that saw Huntersville and Batesville grow. She and other young friends rode on the first railroad to go through the area by invitation of the railroad company. The girls took chairs from home to sit on. Her parents, Christian Heinrich Zies and Mary Katherine Severinghaus, had a house and 40 acres in Batesville, and in 1997 the house was still there. It had been bought or built about 1840 on Huntersville Road.

George’s sister, Caroline, married Henry E. Brockman who owned Batesville’s leading retail shoe store. The Stiegelmeyer and Henry Brockman families both lived on Mulberry Street in Batesville. The Stiegelmeyers had eight children, and Fred Stiegelmeyer worked at the Union Furniture Co.

One of George’s brothers, Edward, was a policeman in Indianapolis.
