|Notes: Harold was often called Harry. His surname at birth was Catt,
but some later sources gave his surname as Catte.
I have verified that Harold Catt and Harry Catte were one
and the same person.|
In 1890 Harry at age 19 left his Ontario home and went to Manitou, in Manitoba's Rural Municipality (R.M.) of Pembina. There he drove a team of horses for a livery barn and the doctor at Manitou.
In 1893 Harry moved to Ladysmith and build a shack on the Assiniboine River bank at his homestead — apparently at S.W. 16-9-10 and near the 1897 homestead of his brother Albert Catt at section 18-9-10. Harry thus was one of the first settlers in the Ladysmith District of Manitoba's R.M. of South Norfolk. When the river flooded in 1895, he lost his house and all of his belongings.
Harry then went to British Columbia where he did carpentry work. In 1898, he went to the Yukon with the gold seekers. He returned to B.C. in 1899 without any gold. In 1902 he returned to Ladysmith and stayed awhile before going back to Ontario.
In July 1906 Harry was single, had two horses, and lived in the MacDonald District in the R.M. of South Norfolk. His post office address was Lavenham, Manitoba.
In 1917 Harry moved to Ladysmith and cleared the farm near the river. He married Sophie later that year in Winnipeg.
In 1928 Harry passed on at the age of 56.
