Census details

Some aspects of Samuel Cato's life. Sam the youngest of the original ships load was the only son who did not go for the soil. He was a Wharf Superintendant for the Tas. Steam Nav. Co. and after with the Union Co which absorbed the old company. He married Harriet Hickman a sister of Joseph's wife Fanny.

He had several daughters all of whom I knew but I did not know the sons. One was at Grandfather's funeral and I think his name was Albert. I have always thought (I don't know why) that Jack Cato belongs to this family. Sam's home was at New Town quite close to Kemble.16

Commemoration

His death was commemorated by an obituary in the Hobart newspapers on 14 February 1891 in The Mercury, Tasmania, Australia.17
