Notes:  *Robyne Ayres in Source 1155 reports that the death certificate for Harriett Catt (i.e., the mother of this Eleanor) 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.

  • 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 Eleanor and Alice were one and the same person.
