Catherine (Kate) Coulter was raised by the Sanborn Family of Detroit, Mi.. Catherine married Frank Earl Scratch/Kratz abt 1889 in Detroit (Frank was in the lumber business). 3 children were from this marriage: Melford,b. Hamilton, Ontario; Earl Jr. (was last heard of in Chicago, Ill..) Hildred, married Alfonso Williams 1st, divorced and married 2nd. Donald Thomas of Grand Rapids, Mi., and lived there 2 years until Donald's death. Hildred then moved to Jackson, Mi., where she died in a Methodist Home. We have a Photograph of Hildred.

In 1899, Catherine's brother Harry Earl Coulter visited them in Kingsville. Harry was a Spanish American War Vet suffering from Malaria who used Frank's doctor in his search for medical help. We have the doctor's affidavit to this effect. Sometime after 1902 Catherine @ Frank divorced, and Frank Changes his name to Kratz. Catherine and Hildred moved back to the USA (Grand Rapids, Michigan to live and work). Does this ring any bells?
