Daughter of George Washington Dowell and Maria Mitchell. Married Benjamin H. Downing in Baltimore in 1872. In 1877 they removed to Great Bend, Kansas, and in 1883, to Wichita. Kate and Benjamin had six children, only three of whom had children of their own. Descendants in moderate numbers exist today.
Kate died of cancer. There is a degree of uncertainty over her middle name. In some places it appears as "Edith", and in others, "Ellsworth". In addition, early census reports in Calvert county, MD, show her listed as Mary Christina Dowell.
