Notes:  *Robyne Ayres in Source 1155 reports that the death certificate for Harriett Catt (i.e., the mother of this Harriett) lists a 25-year-old Alice as a daughter, but no daughters named Harriett or Eleanor.  Two alternative hypotheses can explain for the appearance of a daughter named Alice:
  • Hypothesis #1:  Daughter Eleanor died before 1873, daughter Harriett's middle name or nickname was Alice, and by 1873 Harriett used the name Alice rather than her first given name.  (Since daughter Harriett had the same given name as her mother, it would have been confusing to refer to both of them as Harriett.)
  • Hypothesis #2:  Daughter Harriett died before 1873, daughter Eleanor's middle name or nickname was Alice, and by 1873 Eleanor used the name Alice rather than her first given name.

However, only Hypothesis #2 is supported when we compare the ages of daughters Harriett and Eleanor to the 25-year-old Alice.  At the time of Harriett Catt's death, daughter Harriett (if then living) would have been 27 years and 7 months old, while Eleanor would have been 25 years and 5 months old — the same age as Alice.  I therefore conclude that Harriett died before 1873.  This conclusion is further supported by Robyne Ayres report that other histories indicate that "Harriet" died before 1856 — which now seems likely.
