One child with an Indian named Ann

Daughter Catherine “Kitty” was born around 1805 in Oregon Territory to Tom and an Indian woman named Ann, who apparently died soon after.
Forsythe: Kitty was the daughter of a Cree Indian woman named Ann and Thomas HUMPHERVILLE,
a British officer stationed at Fort York. Kitty's father was apparently reassigned when she was a child, and though the family never saw him again, he continued to send money to Ann and his children for many years. Without an English speaker in the home, Kitty grew up speaking her native language and French.
