Mrs. Mary Hartwell Catherwood
CATHERWOOD, Mrs. Mary Hartwell, author, born in Luray, Licking county, Ohio, 16th December, 1847. Mrs. Catherwood's father came from a line of Scotch-Irish baronets, the Scott family. He was a physician and took his young family to Illinois long before the prairies were drained and cultivated. He fell a victim to the arduous duties of his profession in that new and unsettled country. Mary Hartwell was graduated in the Female College, Granville, Ohio, in 1868, and on 27th December, 1887, became the wife of James S. Catherwood, with whom she resides in Hoopeston, Ill., a suburb of Chicago. They have one child. Among her works are "Cracjue-o-'Doom" (Philadelphia, 1881); "Rocky Fork" (Boston, 1882); "Old Caravan Days" (1884); "The Secrets at Roseladies" (1888); "The Romance of Dollard" (1889), and "The Bells of Ste. Anne" (1889). Mary Hartwell Catherwood was always given to story-making, and she early formed the habit of putting her stories on paper. Her attention was attracted to Canadian subjects while on a visit to the American consul in Sherbrooke. She has made the history of the old French regime a special study. She is best known through her "Romance of Dollard," published as a serial in the "Century." It attracted much attention all over the United States. Her later work, "The Story of Tonty," is the condensed result of much study. In January, 1891, Mrs. Catherwood became associated in an editorial capacity with the "Graphic," a weekly illustrated paper of Chicago. She is a member of the Universalist Church and identifies herself with its work, especially among children.
