Catherine was born about 1913 in New Jersey, United States. Her parents were Andrew Connolly and Margaret Connolly.[1]

In 1915 Catherine and her siblings Rose and Andrew lived at 54 Jersey Avenue with their parents. Catherine's father was a railroad usher, Rose attended the Washington Public School, and her brother Andrew attended the Saint Peter's Parish school.[1]

After Catherine's father died in 1919,[2] Catherine (shown as Catherin, age 7) and her siblings Rose (age 17), Andrew (age 14), and Helen (age 2) continued to live with their mother at 224 Baldwin Street in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States in 1920. Rose worked as a clerk in a factory.[3]

In 1930 Catherine (age 18) and her siblings Rose (age 25), Andrew (age 24), and Helen (age 12) all remained at 224 Baldwin Street with their mother. Andrew was a carpenter and Catherine was a stenographer in a law office, but Rose was not employed.[4]

In 1940 Catherine (age 27) and her sister Helen (age 21) still lived in their mother's $5,000 home at 224 Baldwin Street. Her brother Andrew (age 34) paid their mother $30 per month rent for his own apartment there, where he lived with his wife Jean (age 27). Andrew, who had completed two years of high school, was a carpenter in the building industry. Catherine worked for an insurance company as a secretary, and Helen was a private nurse. Catherine, Helen, and Jean had all completed four years of high school.[5]
