1898 City Directory. Stenographer Catherine Butler was born in Minnesota in 1877 of Irish parents. I do not believe she was related to the Butler Bros. contractors. She and her brother Joseph lived at this address with their parents. She worked in Butler-Ryans's office and Joseph worked on the Capitol as a bricklayer. Catherine married Edward Kannary and she lived a long life in St. Paul dying in 1978 at the age of 101!
