Katherine Ann (McFee) or (McPhee) Stevens, was the wife of Mr. Byron E. Stevens. The couple resided in Brooklyn Ward 7, New York, USA with their 5 daughters(1). Story has it that Katherine was killed in New York when a stranger pushed her from a passenger train. Byron then joined a shipping crew headed for Panama. Ship Record: Sailing from Cristobal, Canal Zone, Panama, Byron E. Stevens died at sea, 05 June 1919 on the S.S. Advance. He lived at 2586 Beford Ave, Brooklyn, New York. He was a widower. A series of searches of periodicals did not yield any valid results. A search of interment records did produce a likely result, Catherine Stevens buried on the 1st of August, 1911 at lot(1715) section(87) (3). These two records support the timeline of Katherine being killed but I don't see any proof to support the theory.
Would be excited to know if she was in fact killed, and if so who killed her.
