Catherine Ann McKenzie was born August 27, 1857 in Lochalsh, Huron, Ontario, fourth child and second daughter of Kenneth McKenzie and Margaret McRae. Her little brother Kenneth was born two years later.

By 1861 Kate's mother had had married a man named John MacLennan. The marriage would have a lasting influence on Kate. Not only did her family grow, with eight new step-siblings, but the family also ended up moving from Ontario to British Columbia. Kate moved with her family in the early 1890's to Victoria, British Columbia where she became a dressmaker.

Some time after her mother's death in 1907, Kate moved back east to rejoin her brother and sisters who lived in Detroit and Ontario. She ended up back in the Detroit area.

Catherine Ann McKenzie died May 8, 1937 in Royal Oak, Michigan. Her age is listed as 81 at the time.

Kate's birthdate was calculated using the age and birth dates listed in various census records. In 1861, the census closest to her birth, she is listed as three years old. The Canadian 1861 census started in January in Ontario that year. Since Kate listed her birth day and month as 27 August in a different census, the August date three years prior to January 1861 would be August 1857. Hence the date reported in this record. That would put Kate in her 81st year at the time of her death.

At this time, we do not know if Kate ever married during her long life. Nor do we know exactly where she is buried. We look forward to learning more about Catherine Ann in the future.
