My mother was Mary Ben Cather,br.1900/28.04, daughter of John Herbert Cather Caroline Brokaw. She has documented her Cather line to Col. William Cather from Greene Co, Pa, who was in the 46th Reg. Green Co Volunteers of the 2nd Brigade 14th Division Pa Military of the War of 1812. I share a great great(of g/g/g?)grandfather with Willa Cather. That personage was located in Virginia. At this time I'm processing the last of my mother's documentation. I'd enjoy any communication on this connection. If my Cather line can be of assistance to othersbe glad to help.
Sincerely K.McPeek

Hi Kay,

I am just beginning to "search out" the family. My father, Kirk Cather Smith Jr., was from Virginia and I have always been told we are related to Willa Cather. Have you run across the smith name?

Kirk Cather Smith Jr.

I've scanned my records and found no Smiths.
However this maybe a name of a recent(being 19th century) union. I'm sorry I cann't be of more assistance. Good luck in your quest. It's quite an interesting quest. K.

I am glad I found you. I am researching my family hx. Sadly, the Cather side has all passed away so I have big blanks. I have always been told that I was related to Willa Cather but never knew how. Have you in your findings come acrros the names of Frederick George Cather (my gf), Bertha Wolfe (my ggg)or Frederick Terence Cather (my father). I have hit dead ends everywhere. I hope you can help.

Are you related to McKee and Glaize family lines also? I am trying to establish these lines for a friend whose last name is Cather. If you are related is there a way to swap info?

Saw your message regarding the Cather Name. My father was Kirk Cather Smith Jr.

I also have been told there is a relationship with Willa. I have not found it but do have some Cather info.

Thanks Ginny, I am not to sure where the same smith originated. I have not figured out the US connection yet. I am actually canadian and the rest of the family was from Belfast. I was wrong on my gggrandmothers maiden name is is actually BUD. Do you have anyone with that name. perhaps you could share what you have.
Thank you Rachel
