 1860

1860  MARYLAND  BALTIMORE   15-WD BALTIMORE = JOHN CATOR
John Cator (48) is the master brickmaker living in Baltimore MD with personal possessions of $5000.  He is head of household with three residents living with him.  One is Elizabeth Cator who is 77 (b. 1783) and Celestial Ferguson is 54 (b.  1806) and Ann Jones a milliner who is 40 (b. 1820)


1860   WASHINGTON DC 3RD WARD = JOSEPH CATOR
Joseph Cator (45) is living in DC.  He was born 1814 in MD.  His personal property is worth $1200 and he is a ______ dealer by trade.  Living with him is Isabella Cator who is 30 and was born in about 1829 in VA.  A son, Igus L. Cator is 6 (b. 1853 in DC), a daughter Clorinda E. Cator who is just 5 (born December 26, 1855 in DC) and Celestia Cator who is an infant at just 5 months of age (b. Feb. 1859 in DC), who is no doubt named after Celestial Ferguson who is 77 and lives with John Cator (see census above).  Isabella is Isabella Dailey Cator.

   1870

1870 CENSUS BALTIMORE (Cantonsville) MD DISTRICT 1 = CELESTIA FERGUSON        (Note lives next door to COLLISON FAMILY.) 

Celestial Ferguson who was living in 1860 with John Cator's household in Baltimore is now living as head of a household worth $5000 and has $200 in personal property.  She is 64 and her namesake, Celestia M. Cator is now 10 years old and living with "Aunt Celestial," it appears.  Elizabeth Cator is 14 and lives with her aunt also.  NOTE:  Evidently when Isabella died, Celestia Ferguson took on responsibility for the raising of Joseph and Isabella's children beginning in 1862.  What happened to Joseph Cator???
