Since I have researched much on this Wolter family, and I feel a little confused about what information I have, I think it is time to do a re-start on the research.

For this post, I will continue the look at Katherine.

Now known is that Kathryn was born 12 November 1896 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, to John Wolter (born Greifswald Pomerania Germany) and Martha Bringe (born Greifswald Pomerania Germany).  We know that Kathryn and Elvert L. McCormick married 13 September 1925 in Chicago, IL.  They planned to reside at Reviera Court, 757 High Street, Newark, NJ, after 1 November 1925, and then resided at 2695 Hudson Boulevard, Jersey City, NJ, after that. We know that Elbert and Kathryn McCormick were residing in North Bergen, Hudson Co., New Jersey, in the 1930 census, and in Oak Park, Cook Co., Illinois, in the 1940 census.  According to Kathryn’s obituary, she resided in Phoenix, Arizona, from about 1957 until her death in 1967.  Before residing in Phoenix, she resided in La Jolla. CA.

Kathryn McCormick sailed on the ship S. S. Fort Victoria from Hamilton Bermuda on 27 September 1927.  She arrived at New York 29 September 1927.  According to the ship record, Kathryn was single and 24 years of age, being born in 1903 in Chicago, IL.   She resided at 1675 Blvd. East, Woodcliffe, NJ.
