Catherine Mary Hogan (1864-1941) Morrissey, was an immigrant from Ireland to the United States around 1880 or 1881. (b. January 1864; Hollygrove township, Athleague parish, Killeroran district, County Galway/Roscommon, Ireland - d. February 6, 1941; Nassau Hospital, Mineola, Nassau County, New York, USA)

Catherine was born in or near Hollygrove, Ireland on the Galway and Roscommon border to John Hogan (c1835-c1887) and Winifred Conboy (c1833-c1905).
