Cathey Family History and Genealogy, Vol 1 (1700-1900), Boyt Henderson Cathey, 1993
Most Catheys in America are descended from James Cathey, who
emigrated from Ireland in 1718. James was part of the Scots-Irish or Ulser
Scot immigration to America that occurred throughout the 18th century. The
Scots-Irish had emigrated from Scotland to Ireland in the previous century.
This 579-page book provides details of the genealogy of the descendents of
James and other early Cathey emigrants from 1700 to 1900. A second volume will
extend to the present. Contact the author for information.
