Catherine Miles was the tenth of eleven children born to Robert Rodgers and his wife Anna Maria Chambers in the Southwark District of Philadelphia County.
"Kate" married Daniel Hiram Yerkes; in 1870, the newlyweds lived with his brother Erwin's young family. In 1880, Hiram and Kate's growing family lived on Mifflin Street. Kate raised their three children -- Walter, Maud Esling, and Enoch Marple -- while Hiram worked as an uphosterer. By 1900, they lived on South 15th Street. From 1910 through 1930, the family lived on South 44th Street at Baltimore Avenue.
Kate survived her husband by 19 years and lived to age 90. She died of bronchio pneumonia; arteriosclerosis and senile dementia contributing.
