  • Notes 
    • While living in Chicago, Illinois, Katherine received correspondence from George Monroe in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada asking her to leave Chicago and go west to meet him. He sent her the money and she went.

      When they met in Vancouver, George said to her, "Kitty Carroll, you are looking at the original George E. Monroe. If what you see, you like, then kiss and bind the bargain. If not, I have the money to send you home." They were married on 8 Aug 1888 in Vancouver and she began sailing with him.

      Ref 1 says she died at Berkeley, California.
