     Catherine Hood Misener was born on 8 September 1852 at Scotland.1 She was the daughter of Adam Misener and Helen Coleman.1 She died on 13 December 1913 at Lot 1 Conc 4, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario, at age 61.1 She was buried at Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 Per the 1901 census, Kate Hood was Adam's adopted daughter and was shown as Kate Hood Misener.

Her death registration shows her name as Catherine Hood. Whether her adoption had a legal status I can't tell. She is shown with Adam and Helena in the 1871 census at the age of 19 as a servant. She went by Kate and I have entered her proper name as Catherine based on her death registration 036977-13. She suffered from mycardiitis for about a yearand the immediate cause of death was pneumonia.

At this point, I have no information about her natural parents.

Kate is buried in the Troy Cemetery. Her stone, a rather attractive and nice carved one, is mounted on a based with the name MISENER on it.The inscription on the stone is Kate Hood/Misener/1851-1913.

At the time of the 1911 census, Kate is shown as living in Flamborough West with Clifford and Hattie Wreaks and their daughter Helen. Kateis shown as Katy and as an aunt. She is also shown as being born in Scotland and coming to Canada in 1854.1
