    Re: Kate the Cook
    Kate the Cook is my great grandmother Catherine “Kate” Toohey McLyndon…I have a picture of her just like the one posted. Loved the story about her…do you have any other stories? Her daughter, Mary Catherine McLyndon Brennan worked for the same family. I have a collection of hand written recipes and some have name with them. My grandfather, Louis B. Brennan may have worked for them too. They lived on Carriage House Lane until about 1917. They moved to a home in Cinnaminson (East Riverton).
