    Children of marriage Catherine's death certificate indicates that she had had five children and that, by the time of her death in about 1921, two boys had died and one boy and two girls were still living. The two living girls would have been Mary and Sarah. The one boy living would have been George. One of the boys who had died would have been William. We know nothing about the other boy who had died (no name or date of birth).

    Note Catherine had a sister, Margaret at Hope Valley and it is likely that she went to her for help with the delivery and her older child.
