The Mystery of the Travelling Violin Case
Some preliminary research has uncovered information on the Geneva Catchpoles: Alfred Catchpole died on August 13, 1913 at age 84. His wife, Emily, died on May 30, 1905 aged 73 years old. Their only child, Alfred Edward, sadly died on September 14, 1873 aged 14 months. They are all interred in Glenwood Cemetery in Geneva, NY. Alfred senior, owner of the violin, was a respected member of the community, and one of the founders of the Catchpole Boiler Works.
