Kittie Leatha Nutting Churchill
Birth: Nov. 11, 1863
Oswego County
New York, USA
Death: Feb. 11, 1946
Idaho Falls
Bonneville County
Idaho, USA

It is unclear whether Kittie was born in 1862 or 1863. Official records differ on the date. For some unknown reason, Kittie was raised by James Lamb Cole and wife Anna Hill. Her parents, Royal Nutting and Betsey Gallea, had divorced so it is possible the mother could not support eight children by herself.

Kittie married Stephen Harrison Vorce January 1, 1879 in Bangor, Michigan when daughter Blanche was three months old. They only had two children, Blanche and Berton. The family was living in Bangor, Michigan at the time and Harrison was working as a farm laborer. For reasons unknown, Kittie and Harrison gave their infant daughter Blanche to Harrison's mother to raise. Harrison died in 1882 when son Berton was only six months old. Harrison had been working in the pineries and had a railway accident.

It is assumed Kittie went to Iowa after the death of Harrison. Iowa is where James and Anna Cole were living so she probably went to live with them again. Kittie married George W. Churchill about 1884, probably in Iowa. They had three children, all born in Iowa: June; Jessie; Anna. By 1915 Kittie and George were divorced. By 1930 Kittie was living in St. Joseph, Missouri and running a brothel/boarding house. She moved to Idaho just two years before she died.

Kittie gave son Berton up for adoption to James and Anna Cole in 1890, reason unknown. Daughter Blanche died from consumption in 1899. Blanche had been living in Michigan, married to Gladstone Beattie. Blanche had two children, one which died as an infant.
