  • Name: Katherine M. Sheridan
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: 27 AUG 1856
  • Death: Y
  • Religion: Baptist 1881 1
  • Note: The only Katherine Davison to sign Leo and Katherine's wedding book says "Mrs. Kate E. Davison". The E doesn't match.
  • Type: Creation Date
  • Note: 2According to a margin note by Nina L Davison in the Hantsport book, Katherine had a finacee, Albert Lockhart, who was lost at sea. (Her father was also lost at sea, failing to bring silk for her wedding dress. It's not clear which marriage this dress was supposed to be for, but he died in 1876, which suggests that it was Albert.) In 1881, Kate's sister Mary lived close to a family of Lockharts.
