Isaac Swartswood Catlin (1835-1916) — a great grandson of Garret Brodhead

On the Old Fulton NY Postcards website, I came upon the following article on Isaac S. Catlin, son of Jane D. Brodhead and Nathaniel Catlin. He and I share a common ancestor, Garret Brodhead (b. 1733), a lieutenant during the Revolutionary War and brother of Brigadier General Daniel Brodhead who was mentioned in recent posts. The article was published in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on Sunday, February 7, 1909. An interesting read, although those prices in that advertisement are incredibly distracting!

  1. Fantastic find. Isn’t it great how we are able to help each other without having any idea we’re doing so. My readers have been so up on things and I’m still learning.

  2. Thanks a million for this post. It provides so much history and personality. Nathaniel Catlin (Isaac’s father) was a distant grandfather to me. I appreciate your post so much!

    • That’s great; I’m glad you enjoyed the post, and I appreciate the feedback. There was a post as well on April 26th w/ Nathaniel’s brief obit and the tragic story of the house fire in DC that took Nathaniel’s daughter and granddaughter. You may find them of interest as well.
