Lisa, I am to a relative of Willa Cather. Unfortunately I dont know very much about her or how we are related. My father died when I was so the cather side is still a bit of a mystery. What I do know is my grandfather, Frederick George Cather came to Vancouver in the eary 1900's from Ireland via Hawaii. I believe that he had brothers and sisters that may have ended up in Bellingham WA. I think this is were Willa comes in. If you have any information on my grandfather or my father Frederick Terence Cahter I would appreciate it.
