Notes for Charles Fectigue Cather

"Charles worked as a deputy sheriff while raising sheep for the Baltimore market. In 1883, when his barn was destroyed by fire, he decided to reunite his family unit with his brother George and father in Nebraska. The farm in Virginia was sold to David Fries in 1883. The Cathers were an educated, well-read family and they kept adding to the store of books they brought with them from Willowshade. Charles and Virginia had seven shildren, including novelist Willa Love Cather, who was born in Frederick County on Dec. 7, 1873, and died April 24, 1947 in New York."
