When she was young, Catherine was called "Coolie" because of the color of her hair - it matched the color of the collie dog's coat. (It is believed coolie was the old Irish way of saying collie.) When she was about 11 years old, Catherine was swinging from a rope hung from the ceiling of the barn, holding her baby brother, Dan. The rope broke, she was able to throw Dan into the hayloft, but she fell to the barn floor. It is believed that she broke her shoulder (no medical attention was given) because she had a hump on her back for the rest of her life.
