      "Catharine McDonald" is 20 years old on the 1871 Census of Canada (she is living with her family, household 92, page 33 Mabou District 1, line 1.) She may have been born in 1851 rather than 1855; this would make her a couple of years older than her husband, however, not too old to have her final child in 1892. She provides the age of 20 years on the 1875 civil registration of her marriage, however.

      (Thomas Casey/Catharine MacDonald marriage registration, Cape Breton County, NS, year 1875, book 1804, page 109, no. 101; Thomas Casey, 21 , bachelor, sailor, res. Glace Bay, b. NewfLand, son of laborer Thomas and Johanna, by banns to Catharine McDonald, 20, spinster, res. Glace Bay, birthplace not indicated, daughter of farmers Archie and Mary; married by Rev. John Shaw at Glace Bay; witnesses Edward Farrell and Catharine Casey )

      How did Catherine get from Mabou to Glace Bay? Did she travel with/to a relative?
