    Notes 
    • Katherine (1890-1968) was a registered nurse and a concert pianist and teacher, and painter. In 1914, she married Guerney Orr, an architect with the civil service in Ottawa. After Guerney died in 1937, she moved to California in 1938 to live with her Aunts Myra Turner Cox and Sarah Turner White, both widows as well. Myra owned a home in Laguna Beach, where Kit practised her painting skills. She loved to paint the boats in the harbor and at Marina Del Mar, several of which survive today. When Myra died in 1954 Kit moved to Tularosa, New Mexico. She was joined there by her sister Ida. Kit lived in Tularosa for about 10 years before moving to Vero Beach, Florida to live near her sister Amy. In her later years she suffered from arthritis and had difficulty playing the piano. She had a "pleasant little house, a few miles out of town". She died there in 1968. (Source: Jan de Grosbois Campbell)
