Catherine/Kate lived with her parents 1700 5th Ave, Altoona, Blair Co.
Born Nov 21 & baptized 12-09-1866 at Holy Name, Ebensberg.
According to The Platt Family History by Joe Platt:
Kate died April 9, 1892.
Her sister Virginia married Dr. James J. Oatman. I never found her baptism
in CVR, and her name is listed as Regina in all but the 1850 census
In the 1900 Altoona census Regina says she is a widow, b August 1848.
Her sister Rose McDermott married Patrick Halton, but, by the 1900 census,
only Patrick can be found living with his sister-in-law, Alice at the
McDermott homestead on 5th Ave in Altoona.
