Dear David,

I was researching the Cather name and saw your message. I think my relatives are from Virginia as I visited there with my Great Aunt when I was very young but I don't remember what city. My great grandfather's name was Clarence Cather who married Nellie Donahue.

My Grandmother was Mary C. Cather and she had four siblings. I have many Cather cousins here in California. Are you a descendant of Willa Cather? My grandmother said she was related to us and had many records dating back to the Civil War but we are still going through her papers and haven't found them as of yet.

I would love to have any info that you have on the Cather family. I will let you know if I find anything that you might find interesting.

Sincerely yours,

Lisa Kennedy

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.

Thank you,

Rachel Cather

I am also related to Willa Cather. My Grandfather, Kirk Cather Smith Sr. and Father, Kirk Cather Smith Jr.. The information I have is pretty poor. I have the Smith line to 1755 (father, but no dates) I am not sure how the relation connects to the Smiths. Would appreciate any info you can share.

Thank You
Ginny

David, Saw your message about the Smith branch of the Cather family tree. My husband is related to the Cathers and Smiths. I was able to find quite a bit of information regarding the Cather family on familysearch.com. I haven't been able to find much about the Smiths. Would appreciate any information you would be willing to share. Thanks
