NoteThere appears to be some variation in the spelling of Kathleen's maiden name, Brundrit. It does appear as Brundrit, however, on the Manitoba marriage index. It also appears as Brundrit on the 1880 census in Davenport City, Scott County, Iowa. Her parents are shown as Dennis Brundrit, age 26, organist, born England, and her mother as Margaret P., age 26, born Ireland. Kathleen is shown as age 1, born Iowa.

By 1891 her family is in Winnipeg and her father is now shown as a lumber agent. Kathleen has a younger brother, Gordon, born in the U.S., and three younger siblings all born in Manitoba. A birth of a younger sibling shows Kathleen's mother's maiden name to be Mouritz.

Family search has a database entitled England, Cheshire Parish Registers, 1538-2000. This shows the marriage of Dennis Brundrit and Margaret Purefoy Mouritz on 23 Jan, 1878, at All Saints, Runcorn, Cheshire, England. Denis' father's name is William Wright Brundrit, and Margaret's father's name is Robert Hanham Mouritz.

Kathleen's mother died in Winnipeg in 1933. Her grave is in St. John's Anglican Cemetery, Winnipeg, and her dates on her stone read as August 30, 1849 to August 3, 1933.
