Wincy Catherine "Kitty" is thought to be the daughter of Benjamin Frank Davis and Julia Ann Sibley. Born in Richmond county, NC she is a sister to Holm Edward, Matthew, Louvena, Thomas F, Eliza M, Hartwell, John S, Nannie Davis McIntyre, Mary Davis McIntire, Sallie Davis, Susan and Lilly Mae Davis.

It is said that at age 16 she ran off to SC with a married man, William R "Bill" Stewart, who was 10 years older and who'd left his wife and child for "Kitty". It is not thought that she married Mr. Stewart whose wife served divorce papers on him when the couple was located in SC where Bill worked at a music school. Bill's ex-wife died soon thereafter under mysterious circumstances.

Kitty later married W E Cox and came to the hospital at age 26, from Anson county.

She spent almost 18 years at the asylum and died of pulmonary tuberculosis.

Much appreciation to Tammie for her assistance in sorting out this very tangled tale.
