From the Toronto Empire 1893 Death of Mrs. Cattanach.
Toronto Empire;- a large circle of acquaintances and many devotedly warm friends will learn with regret of the death of Mrs. Donald Cattanach, which occurred yesterday afternoon at No 220 Richmond street west. The deceased lady was in her eightieth year. She bore a high character for Christian philanthropy, and her name was well known and heighly respected in many distant parts of Canada, and especially in Ontario. She was born in the Highland of Scotland, and was directly connected with some of the oldest and most distinguished families on the Old Country. Connected with the MacLeods of MacLeod, of the famous Dunvegan Castle, she was through them related to many of the noble houses of England and Scotland, a connection she never paraded and of which few of her friends were aware. But she delighted to tel of the Macdonalds of Kingsburgh, Skye and of Flora Macdonald, the heroine of the '45, and Prince Charlie, of whom Mrs Cattanach was a grand niece. She inherited many of the graceful virtues and great qualities of her race. She was endowed with mental faculties of a high order, had a well cultured mind, and a remarkable store of varied information which a retentive and ready memory enabled her to apply to great advantage in counsel or for entertainment, Her knowledge of the language, and folklore of her native country was extensive and when dispensing the generous hospitality of her home, for which she was notably famous, she could always interest, amuse or instruct to an unusual degree. She was of a deeply religious cast of mind, but cant or narrow-mindedness was foreign to her nature. Her home was ever the honoured resort of ministers of the Gospels on their travels, of men and women engaged in good work, and of friends passing through the city. The graces of a hostess sat on few women with more charm, and she had more than ordinary opportunity in her long lifetime of administering in that capacity to the pleasure and comfort of her friends. In 1830 she married Donald Cattanach, of Laggan, Glengarry county, whose second wife she was. She lived for a long time in Glengarry, for a short time in Winnipeg, and for many years in Toronto, with Mr. James Cattanach McMillan, her husband step son, and Mrs Campbell, her daughter, widow of Rev. Hugh Campbell, of Cornwall and Caunington?, Ontario. Here she gathered around her a circle of friends who could not fail to appreciate her remarkable qualities of head and heart. Her family consisted of four daughters, viz., Jessie Flora, wife of Mr. A W Ross, M.P. for Lisgar; Anna, widow of late Mr Perry, Winnipeg; Margaret, wife of Mr. Malcolm MacLean, merchant, Vancouver, B.C., and Mary J. D., deceased, who was married to Prof. Panton, of the Agricultural college, Guelph. Her brother is Mr. James R Mackenzie, postmaster, Lochiel. The remains will be taken from Toronto tomorrow to Dalhousie Mills, Glengarry, where the interment will take place on Wednesday. from Glenda Franklin-- added 10/12 awf
