Katie Crimlisk was initially thought to be another child of James and Fannie, but only 4 chilren were declared on the census, so it would seem that Katharine’s age of 20 years, (making her mother 15 years at the time of the birth), is a data error, and hence that Katie and Katharine are the same person.
