Useful information on Kathy Mershon/Kate Martin
*Kathy Mershon arrived in Pine Valley with her mother in 2007; she became Julia Santos' ward when her mother died.
Kathy came to Pine Valley with her mother in 2007. After her mother's death, Kathy went to live with Julia Santos. She bonded very quickly with Julia and Jamie Martin. Through Jamie she came to know Tad Martin and developed a strong relationship with him, too. Throughout this time, Tad was searching for his biological daughter, Kate, whom Dixie had given up for adoption.
Adam Chandler blackmailed Amanda Dillon into stealing some information from Wildwind, in that box of information was Kathy's adoption certificate and the information that Kathy was really Kate. Adam tried to blackmail Krystal, saying he would tell Tad about Kate if she would come back to him. Krystal turned him down.
In 2008, Dixie's ghost returned to Pine Valley and haunted Adam into revealing the truth. Kathy was thrilled that Tad was her father but she did not like Krystal being part of their life. She tried to get Tad to leave Krystal or Krystal to leave Tad but none of her actions worked; Tad finally realized what was going on and the family began to have counseling sessions.
