Birth: May 13, 1859
Trenton
Mercer County
New Jersey, USA
Death: 1885
Napanee
Lennox and Addington County
Ontario, Canada

Daughter of papermaker Peter Thomson and his wife Margaret Blaemyres, both from Scotland.

Her parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles all worked for the Cowan Paper Mills in Penicuik, Scotland, soon to become the largest in the world.

Most of the family immigrated to New Jersey about 1854, with her uncles John Thomson and James Thomson Jr becoming innovators in the field of paper manufacturing in North America and written up in the Canadian encyclopedia.

Kate's baptismal record states she was born in Trenton where her grandparents lived while her parents Peter and Margaret are listed on the 1860 census in East Cain, Chester, Pennsylvania, next door to her Uncle James.

Her parents may have died early as Kate is on the 1871 census living with her grandfather James Thomson Sr in Prince Ward, Saint John, New Brunswick, and then with her Uncle John's family in Newburgh, Lennox and Addington, Ontario, in 1881.
