|Notes: On 31 Jan 1895 the Forest Free Press reported that, while "Frank Crossley
was cutting feed for Stephen Catt, one of the rods broke loose and struck Norman
Catt [age 18] just above the eye, knocking him senseless. He was carried
to the house and in a few moments began to recover. On examination it was
found his breast and legs had received several bruises but we are glad to
hear he will soon be around again."|
When Norman was 23, the Forest Free Press reported on 25 May 1899 that "there appears to be a rush in bikes this season in and around Jura: . . . Norman Catt . . . [and eight other individuals] have invested."
When Norman was 24, he was still single and living at his parent's farm in Bosanquet, Lambton County, Ontario, with nine of his brothers and sisters.
When Norman was 28, in 1904, he left his Ontario home and went to Manitou, in Manitoba's Rural Municipality (R.M.) of Pembina. In 1906 he married Alice Reynolds of Manitou. They moved to North Battleford, Saskatchewan, where he worked at carpentry for six years, before buying a homestead out of North Battleford.
When Norman was 43, in 1919, his wife passed away. He returned to Manitoba with his eight children and resided on the Phil Pullman farm in the Ladysmith district. He worked on his brother Albert Catt's farm. His older sister Alice Catt, widowed by the death of Charles Harman, kept house for him.
In 1928, Norman bought the Albert Catt farm and lived there until his death in 1957, one week after his 81st birthday.
