Third Great-grandmother of James Joseph Sparks
She is living with her daughter Theresa Payne in the 1850 census of Nelson County, KY. She is shown as 71 years of age, born in Maryland. Only her first initial of C is given. This indicates a birth year of ca 1779. See THE MATTINGLY FAMILY IN EARLY AMERICA by Herman E. Mattingly
(1975) which gives Catherine's birth year as ca. 1775 (p. 57).

April, 1761, Catherine Spalding is baptised at St. Joseph's Church, St. Mary's Co., MD., Under sponsers it states: Thomas Spalding, Jr. , (son of Thomas Spalding, E.H.), Mary Spalding.
Comment: Because of the probability that Catherine (Rin 1110) was born ca. 1775-79, the Catherine who was baptised in 1761 was probably an aunt or cousin. Her aunt Catherine, her father's sister, was born in 1744 and could have been baptised at age 17.

From THOMAS JENKINS OF MARYLAND 1670 by Edward Felix Jenkins, O.S. A. at page 16:
"Catherine, b. ca. 1744; m. William Mattingly; b. ca. 1730. William remarried Nancy Elizabeth Clarke and went to KY. (Father Herman E. Mattingly)."
See SOUTHERN MARYLAND CATHOLIC FAMILIES, FHL 975.241 F2o at pg 30: 30 April, 1761, Catherine Spalding is baptised at St. Joseph's Church , St. Mary's Co., Maryland. Under sponsors it states: Thomas Spalding Jr ., and Mary Spalding. Mary was her sister aged about 19 and Thomas was probably her father. It wouldn't have been her brother who was 11 years of age.
See THE MATTINGLY FAMILY IN EARLY AMERICA by Herman E. Mattingly ( 1975) p. 61:
"William Mattingly, second son of Ignatius Mattingly, Sr. (1642) married first in Maryland, Catherine Spalding, and had James, Edward , and Richard. Catherine did not live many years in Kentucky, for William married March 18, 1794, in Nelson County, Kentucky, Nancy Elizabeth Clark. To this second union were born ten children: William, Mary, Benjamin, Felix , Ignatius, Julia, George, Susan, Catherine and John Mattingly. (Note: A problem arises about the first wife of William Mattingly. Church records at St. Genevieve 's, Missouri, have these two entries: 1) February 15, 1814, William Mattingly, son of Wm. Mattingly and Elizabeth Clark married Elizab. Manning daughter of John Manning and Eustasia Ormsby; 2) September 4, 1809, James Mattingly, son of William Mattingly and Marie Spalding married Anne Manning, daughter of John Manning and Eustasia Ormsby. This would seem to indicate that William Mattingly's first wife was Mary Spalding instead of Catherine Spalding . Probably her name was Mary Catherine Spalding (citing Records, courtesy Mrs. Leona Hilsabeck, Austin, Texas.)"
