Note: These are in no particular order chronologically. They come from various places, but all consist of Cathy Harris’s own writing. And they are not from one piece of writing. They are bits and pieces. I’ve highlighted the sections that are pertinent.
It appears that Cathy Harris has somehow figured out that Gold Lewis Canby (“Lou”) was her biological father. It’s not like this man was a mythical secretive character in her life. She has written about him extensively, for years.
All of us who have followed her unfolding, ever-changing story know about Lou.
For those of you who don’t, here he is. In Cathy’s own words.
The son appears to have died during the Korean War, not Vietnam. Lou’s first name was Gold.
In July of 1974, Cathy Harris was ten years old. She had attended a private Christian school from the beginning of her education. I’m not a fan of private Christian schools, but they do one thing pretty well. They teach kids to read and write.
NOTE: I’ve inserted this just as a point of interest. Felix, Lou, no matter. All the farm hands, all the men everywhere. They all molested her. Back to the original narrative.
And this needs a little explanation. This is a post Cathy made in a secret private group on Facebook. Secret private groups are not secret nor are they private for the most part. There is always somebody who leaks stuff.
Chuckles Travels was a blog that Cathy ran for several years, anonymously. She pretended that there were multiple people involved in it, but it was really just Cathy.
What follows is a message that Cathy claims Richard Harris sent to this anonymous blog.
If you look at the link, and scroll down to the second letter, you’ll see a sample of the real, actual Richard Harris’s writing. Compare that with what follows here.
I do not believe that Richard Harris wrote this. I believe Cathy wrote it. But it doesn’t really matter either way for now.
Either Richard Harris or Cathy Harris is claiming that Lou and Cleo were both arrested and Cathy was sent to live in a foster home. Not just any foster home, but one in the system, connected with “children’s services,” the state.
Cathy, at the time she posted this, could have said, “Well, that really didn’t happen” but she didn’t. She just leaves it the way it is without comment.
“We sent her to Bethesda. She was not at Bethesda long.”
Because the state said “no” and forced Harris to bring her back to Pennsylvania. So, if she actually ever went to Bethesda, she certainly was not there for four years like the commenter on this blog claimed.
Ask yourself if an educated man who spent his entire life in the ministry of a large church would write something like that about his own family and send it to an anonymous blog.
And this is not Cathy writing, but a sort of mysterious person who calls himself Mark Moore. Mark is an enigma. He only shows up when it’s convenient for him to do so.
At any rate, he has some definite opinions about Cleo and Lou, as you can see. This is just a sample of the sort of thing that Cathy’s supporters have said about Lou over the years.
So now you’ve met Lou, through Cathy’s eyes.
That’s Lou Canby, the alcoholic who molested little girls repeatedly, was arrested for doing so, who stayed drunk most of the time, who not only raped Cathy but also battered her, who locked her in the basement, was complicit with her “kidnapping” when she was three years old and who got lung cancer, and was practically bed-ridden, but managed to drag himself and his oxygen tank to the kitchen one day so he could blow his brains out.
He’s Cathy Harris’ biological father. She lived with him until he died when she was 12 years old.
And she would never have known this if her relatives, that she had no knowledge of, that she’d lost track of, that she couldn’t find, hadn’t found her.
This was written at least three years ago.
NOTE: There’s an “explanation” for this. Here it is from earlier today (July 2, 2017)
So, none of the stuff Cathy describes above, in graphic detail, ever happened? The baths? The rapes? The locked in the basement stuff? The arrests? The physical assault? What about the diary? Was Cathy “confused” when she wrote the diary at age ten about how Lou assaulted her? What about the kidnapping at age 3? You cannot be kidnapped if you’re actually living with your biological father, unless the father didn’t have legal custody and stole the child from her biological mother. Who was Cathy’s mother? It couldn’t have been Cleo. She was too old. It couldn’t have been Lou Canby’s first wife. Her name was Bessie Bartles. She was born in 1912 and would have been 52 years old when Cathy was born.
So who was her mother?
