      [c1970] Cornelius Catts came to Missaukee County in 1871. In 1872, he married Jeltje Bouma. They homesteaded some property in Prosper and purchased some more. They made their home about one-quarter of a mile east of the Prosper Cemetery. They had 12 children Elizabeth, who died at birth, Joanna, Hattie, Rene, Dave, Maggie, Lizzie, Minnie, Katie, Nellie, Agnes and Jake. Only one is still living. They cleared the land and farmed. They had to bring provisions from the nearest railroad which was at Evart. Cornelius was a camp foreman in the lumber camps during the winter. He was the clerk for Clam Union Township for 22 years, the supervisor for 5 years, the justice of the peace for 3 years and school director for 20 years. He used to attract deer with a salt lick and shot them while stationed atop a scaffold near by. Their home, two barns and two graineries burned when their youngest child, Lizzie was two or three years old. They were charter members of the Prosper Christian Reformed Church. He was an officer of the Church for many years. Cornelius died in 1944, Jeltje having preceded him in death in 1936. Of the 955 direct line descendants only 7 bear the name Catts.
