October 23rd 182[5]
Aged 54

From a biography of her son, we know that Catherine Mosely was born in Exeter around 1771. She married Joseph Sigmond a dentist who had come to Exeter from Poland and their son, George Gabriel Sigmond, was born in 1794, around the time the family moved to Bath.

We know very little about Catherine's life. One clue is that her husband Joseph Sigmond's will refers to his freehold property in Swansea, in the occupation of Joseph Mosely a silversmith. We assume this was Catherine's brother who in the 1841 census was living with his wife and children in Goat Street Swansea, aged 70, a watchmaker and silversmith.
Catherine's  death notice appeared in the Bath Chronicle on Thursday 27 October 1825. 'Thursday, died after a short illness, the lady of Joseph Sigmond esq. Her unaffected goodness and many amiable qualities had greatly endeared her to her afflicted friends and family'. Joseph died in 1832 and is buried in the adjacent chest tomb. 

Their son George Gabriel Sigmond became a well known London physician.
