Thomas RE: Hiram, Sr. revision #2: Hiram married (1) Lucy M. Kimbel, 1854. Three childern: John, Lucy Jr., Hiram Jr. Lucy Sr. died in child birth(?) of Hiram Jr. Because of the young age of the children Melvina Pendall was the only real mother they knew and used her name on their certificates. Hiram Sr. married (2) Melvina Pendall ca. 1859 for her name to be on the 1860 census. Hiram Sr. and Melvina had three children: George, Harry and Charles. ***comments***
Hiram Sr. does not show up on the 1900-1920 cemsus. John W. Cator on his death certificate lists: father- H. W. Cator; mother- Melvina Pendel. Hiram Jr. on his death certificate has no family information- widowed, wife unknown. Harry M. Cator on his death certificate information was divorced; father- H. W. Cator, mother- Melvina Pendall. Does Gertie Melvina Cator (marriage certificate) have any childern? Does Charles Lawrence Cator's children have children? names, birth dates, birth places.
