Catherine Eliza Monk

Catherine Eliza Monk, born 3 Aug 1873, was the daughter of William Monk (b. 16 Aug 1831) and Margaret Anne Newcomb (b. 23 Jan 1834).  John Bearse Newcomb said that Margaret and William had no children. B.M. Newcomb indicated that this child was born to them after 21 years of marriage, when Margaret was 39 years old. Not impossible, but somewhat unusual. Catherine may have been adopted.
