Catharine DAVIS born about 1801 or 1802 in nearby Westerly, Rhode Island is listed in the Barbour Index for page 55 with no birth date and just a place.  She died 13 September 1848 at age 47.

Catharine was the second wife of Luke Gallup. They were married (Barbour Index) 13 Nov 1836 by William Williams, Justice of the Peace. I don't know if Mr. Williams was the same person as the father of Luke's first wife, Melinda.

Catharine's first name is not always spelled in her two records with the a but as Catherine. 

Luke and Catharine had an infant son but no other children but of course, she raised several of the children from Luke's first marriage.
