Born along the shores of Lake Erie in New York, Catherine was the daughter of Susanna Dinsmore and Anson Goodrich. Her younger brother was Benjamin Franklin Goodrich who founded the tire company in Akron, Ohio. Susannah was James Dinsmore's younger sister and she brought her family to visit the farm several times. When they were here from Christmas in 1848, Catherine died, presumably from an illness.
