Catchpole, James, was born in England in March, 1825, the son of James and Susan Catchpole, who came to America in 1835. Their children are: Mrs. Susan Smith, of Geneva; Mrs. Ann Thomas, of Geneva; Jerimia Smith, of Huron; Benjamin, Mary Ann, Robert, and Matilda. In 1844 they came to Huron and settled on the farm now owned by our subject. Mr. Catchpole was at an early date in partnership with his brothers, Benjamin and Robert, and John Smith engaged extensively in the manufacture of lumber. They built the lake boats called Charger and Catchpole, and they also built a storehouse in North Rose, and dealt in produce for many years. For several years our subject has devoted his attention to farming on the homestead of 118 acres, where he now resides with his sisters, Mary Ann, and Matilda.
