Jane (SEARCH) WATKINS is Catharine's daughter.  Mary (SEARCH) GRAVES is Catharine's widowed daughter, who is fibbing about her age.  Harriet STROUB is Catharine's granddaughter (d/o Samuel STROUB & Martha SEARCH).  Samuel is deceased, and Martha has remarried Spencer GILL.  Apparently Harriet chose to stay with her grandmother, rather than her remarried mother, who moved to Indiana.

7.  Paul J. Midlam & Barbara Midlam.  1985.  Marion County, Ohio, Cemetery Inscriptions (online at Heritage Pursuit):
SEARCH, Charles d Dec 9 1841 Aged: 59y 3m 14d Marion Old Cemetery Marion [Twp.]
SEARCH, Catherine w/o Charles d Feb 25 1863 Aged: 54y 1m 9d Marion Old Cemetery Marion [Twp.]

8.  Birthdate calculated using Ben Buckner's JavaScript Birthday Calculator.

Charles SEARCH  9 Dec 1841 14d 3m 59y 25 Aug 1772
Catherine SEARCH 25 Feb 1863  9d 1m 54y 16 Jan 1809
(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)
The tombstone had to have been misread; she should have been 74 years old, not 54 (the month and day are correct).
