C is for Catherine (#AtoZ Challenge)
C is for Catherine - 38 of them in my family file! Fourteen of them only as Catherine, four as Catherine Elizabeth, three as Catherine Ann and two as Catherine Margaret. Two of these ladies were known as Kate and one as Cassie. The first Catherine in my tree is Catherine McLaren, my 4th great grandmother, born 1786 in Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland and the latest, Catherine Patterson, born in 1954 in Queensland, a 3rd cousin once removed. So you see quite a timespan.
Catherine is often shortened to the following nicknames: Katrin, Cathy, Cate, Cat, Cati, Catie, Kitty, Cath, Cather, Wren, Erin, and others (Wikipedia).
Do you have a Catherine and what was her nickname?
