I am getting further up into the branches of the Ketchum Family Tree. You can see my current progress at Just recently, I located the death certificate for David Henderson Ketchum. It has his father's name as William. Since David was born in 1863, William would have to have been born around 1830-1840'ish. Does anybody have any information about this William? There are numerous Williams in various Ketchum genealogies but none around the right birth date. I also found out that David had been married twice: Once to Florence Rosella Gray (two children - Ida Belle Ketchum, Hattie M. Ketchum) and Cora Lillian McGuire by which he had many children. As he married Cora when he was 21, he must have married Florence quite young. I found her cemetary plot and her two children were raised by her parents. Any help on this Ketchum line would be greatly appreciated.
