    1900 Census showing the Canty's in Salem:

  • Notes 
    • Catherine was a warm person, and a very pleasant lady, according to her grandson Harry. Her grandchildren say that she would not talk about her past in Ireland.
      Catherine, travelling either alone or with a cousin?, came to America at the age of 11 (per RKS 3/2/80 Mumi memo), by steamer stearage after the death of her father in Ireland. Her mother and siblings were already living in Salem, MA, while she had stayed in Ireland with her father. Catherine came from County Waterford to America in 1865 (RKS "blue folder").

      She lived at 106 Derby Street (renumbered 168 Derby around 1897), the Derby House, where her mother operated a boarding house. Others listed at this address: Daniel Leahy (laborer) 1874-94, 93-94; Joanna (widow of Patrick) Leahy 1874-98 (at 109 Derby 1890-91), Michael Leahy (boards 1874-1898), Bartholomew Leahy (1881-1898, Chelsea in 1884), and Edmund Canty in 1881(same year he married Catherine). Bart, Daniel and Joanna first appear in the Salem Directory in 1866 at House at foot of Tuckers Warf; later at 1 Palfray Court with Michael and Patrick (who only appears in 1869) from 1869-1872. Joanna Leahy (widow of Patrick) died 5/11/1900. Daniel removed to Beverly, 1900, and died in 1906 at the age of 59 (therefore born abt. 1847).

      Catherine died September 14, 1936 at the Salem Hospital after an extended illness. According to her obituary, she was well known in Ward One.

      According to the 1910 US Census, Catherine and Edward lived at 35 Daniels Street in Salem, MA. At this same address was the family of Michael and Catherine Doyle - cousin??
