About Catrina Inslee

From the History of Paterson City and Passaic County, NJ., 1901, pg. 341 (353/464)

Catrina, b. Oct. 17, 1799, m. John Inslee, a hatter

They lived in New York some years, but in 1820 returned to Paterson, and lived in her father's house. She was a woman of superior refinement, and it was a fortunate day for the little folks in the Infant School in Elm Street when she became their teacher, on May 1, 1828. One of her daughters married Cornelius Speer, another married the Rev. Andrew Hopper and was the mother of Inslee Hopper, for many years the head of the Singer Sewing Machine Company. Her son Abraham went to Charleston, Virginia, in 1838, returning to Paterson in the winter of 1839-40, and in November 1841 removed to Cincinnati.
