NOTE: THERE ARE 2 CATHERINE BURTCHEALLs who were first cousins. One was married to Joseph Heard (2nd wife), and the other was married to Dr. John Berry.
From email from Linda Ford, 5-20-2014:
"In my original email to you, I said Dr. Berry was married to Jane, but I was confused and just plain wrong in that. He was married to Kate. Jane in fact married Joseph Heard's eldest son Will.
The only thing you have wrong about your Kate Burtchel married to Dr. John C Berry is the spelling of her surname. It was Burtchaell. She and Joseph Heard's second wife, also named Kate (short for Catherine) Burtchaell, were first cousins. (Are you confused yet? You have no idea how many Catherine Burtchaells there have been, down through the ages. It is even part of my name!)
Your Kate Burtchaell (and her sister Jane) was the daughter of Archdall and Maria Burtchaell of Toronto. I am very interested in the info you have posted on your genealogy, that indicates that Kate had mental/emotional problems and was hospitalized. What can you tell me about that? What can you tell me about her death? There doesn't seem to be any info about her in our family after she married and moved to the US.
I'm attaching a few more photos that might interest you. Evelyn is Tot in the first picture I sent you. In the farmhouse picture, the people are (L to R) Augusta Burtchaell, Benjamin Burton Burtchaell, my Kate Burtchaell, Joseph Heard, Dr Berry, your Kate Burtchaell, Ted Heard, and in front: Hazel, Evelyn and Bea Heard.
Catherine married Joseph Heard, son of William Thomas Heard and Margaret Hawkins. (Joseph Heard was born on 25 Mar 1846 in Barnstaple, Devonshire, England,56,472 died on 15 Jan 1911 in Fenelon Falls, Victoria North, Ontario, Canada 51 and was buried in Fenelon Falls, Victoria North, Ontario, Canada 493.)
