About Katharine


Katharine Boggess, Text Wrangler


I live in Old Town Albuquerque, in New Mexico, near the Rio Grande. It’s a beautiful area with a rich and varied history.  I love everything about the desert, and I enjoy exploring it with my archaeologist husband, Doug, and our two boys, Stuart and Martin.

However, I grew up on the ocean, in Neptune Beach, Florida. My mother still lives on the strand in Jacksonville Beach, with an ocean view from every room. We love watching the boys surf and the porpoises play. I think I have the best of both worlds.

I have two young cats who sleep on my bed, a young dog who hikes with the family, and a leopard gecko who loves her crickets. When not text wrangling, I love cooking, reading, sculpting, and attempting to knit, all of the above while listening to jazz and blues.

    Ms. Boggess,

    I work for Pittsburgh’s Mayor, William Peduto. In 2016 we will celebrate the 200th annivesary of our incorporation as a city. The Mayor has asked me to locate descendants of all of our Mayors to invite them to our celebration in July 2016.

    56 individuals have served as Mayor of Pittsburgh during our 200 years. To date I have found & been in contact with 45 of our Mayors’ present day family members. My research on our Mayor William Jordan Howard led me to your post on “Calling All Handys”:

    “June 16, 2013:
    My grandfather was Stuart Handy Robbins, and we found out he was named after a family friend of his father’s generation, Stuart Handy, a dentist from Natchez, MS. I love your work here – well done. –KB”

    I am looking for descendants of the Stuart Handy Robbins who was married to Katherine Kirkman Prichitt. Katherine was the great granddaughter of one of our Mayors: William Jordan Howard. Was Katherine your grandmother? If so you are the great great granddaughter of our Mayor Howard and I would like to invite you to our celebration.

    Please contact me at: gloria.forouzan@pittsburghpa.gov or call me: 412.255.2626.

    I look forward to hearing from you, Gloria Forouzan
