I am looking for ANY info on my gggrandfather, John Cathcart. We do not know who he married, but her last name could have been Addison as that name has been handed down as a middle name to three generations. We know they lived near Paducah, Ky for a while, could have been married there around 1856. My ggrandfather Drew Addison Cathcart was probably born there in 1857. When Drew was about 5 they moved to New Liberty, Il. When Drew was about 12 or 13 both parents died and left he and his younger brother Henry orphans. Both boys went to live with different families. Drew MAY have lived with Byrd Jameson in Diershill, Ky in 1870.( See 1879 census) We do not know where John and his wife died or where they are buried. If you have any info on Cathcarts for this time frame from any reference books, please contact me. I would sincerely appreciate it.
