She was Mrs. Webster when they married. Kate B. Sinton in 1905 wrote: "My father William Sinton was married to Catherine S. Webster (nee Powes) on the second day of January 1851 and on the following December 8th, 1851 I was born, I have three sisters living and one dead, and also three brothers who are also dead. The names of the eight children and the order in which they were born, is as follows - Kate Bell; Charles Augustus, Amelia C., Robert H., Mary S., Alice, Eugene, Elma G. My father died on the 19th day of June 1881, being just eight days less than eighty-four years old. My mother died on the second day of May, 1901, being at the time eighty years and six days old. None of the above children have ever married, one sister, Alice, and three brothers having died in infancy. My self and ... sisters now being what the world calls "Old Maids". Brother Thomas, who is the last surviving member of my father's first family ... my father's first wife was Anna Jackson to whom he was married before coming to America, and of that marriage ... Thomas R., Susan, Wm, Anna, and John. Brother Thomas family consists of three sons, only one of whom is now alive - Harry whose ... children, a daughter Grace B. is the result of his first marriage with Emma Johnson, a son, Preston Scott, being the only child of his second marriage with Anna Lockhart.. Mrs. Harry Sinton and son, Preston Scott, are also residents of this city. Grace B, Harry's daughter, resides with us, who are her great-step-aunts." ...I have neglected to say that my mother was born in England, but had lived in this country for many years prior to her marriage to my father.

The are major differences between the information provided by Kate and the census and marriage records.
I suspect that the order for the children, as given by Kate above, is incorrect as the 1870 census says Amelia was born in 1858.
