In Reply to: Julia Ann Ketrow m. Oliver Richard Brown/Iow a by: Joyce Patterson "My great grandfather was Ethan Allen Ketrow. He was b. 14 Oct 1823 in Ohio.

They lived in Otoe County, Nebraska City as reflected in the 1 856 Nebraska Territoral and 1860 Federal Census for Nebrask a. In the 1870 Federal Census for Iowa there is a Ethan A . Ketrow (along with Maria E., and July Ann living in Wayne County, Corydon Township. Iowa marriages for 1851 reflect s O.R. Brown marrying Julia A. Ketrow on 6 Feb 1879 in Appa . County Iowa. I have been looking for the Ketrow's for a while and I believe these are the same folks. My maiden name was Alice Martha Huntley and I was born in Sarpy County , Neb. and lived in the South Omaha area. My grandmother was Alice Martha Ketrow and she was born 31 Mar 1869 in Derby , Iowa. Please check this out and see it it fits into the f amily tree"

In Reply to: The Ketrow's by: Alicia M Vostrejs"Hi Alicia ! Was great to hear from you. It is very hard to find anyon e from my Ketrow branch but yours looks like a match with mine. My grandmother was Laura Isabelle Courtney Brown. She married my grandfather Josiah Henry Charles in Troy, Doni phan Co., Kansas. I have to look up the dates. I have the story of my grandmother's birth passed down from family members. Her natural father was said to be a Thomas Courtney who they said went off to war and never returned. We couldn' t find a marriage certificate for them, but that doesn't always mean much. She was then adopted by Oliver Richard Brown when he married her mother, my great grandmother, Julia A nn Ketrow. Julia and Oliver had a son they named John. I have an old photo of Julia, Laura and John. I have seen the names Ketrow on the census but have not had the chance to search it at our LDS library yet. There is also a Thomas Courtney in the Iowa census near Julia. I would so like to find my Ketrow links and also my Courney links. Thomas Courtney would be my natural great grandfather. My Dad's sister named her son Keith Courtney, after the grandfather she never knew. I will try to put my e-mail address here, but it usually won't show up. If it doesn't show, maybe you would send me yours and we can discuss these things further and com pare pictures etc. Here goes: Cheers! Joyce"

In Reply to: Julia Ann Ketrow m. Oliver Richard Brown/Iow a by: Joyce Patterson In reference to my message of yesterday, Nr. 6 Oct. 4, 2000. I checked the 1870 Federal Census for Iowa, Wayne County, Corydon Township and found ETH AN ALLEN KETROW and his family living there. KETROW, ETHAN ALLEN, M b. in Ohio KETROW, MARIA C. F, b. in Indiana KETROW, JULIA A, F, b. in Indiana KETROW, JOSEPH, M, b. in Indiana KETROW, MARY E, F, b. in Indiana KETROW, LAURA, F, b . in Indiana KETROW, GEORGE, M, b. in Nebraska (missing from 1865 Nebraska and 1870 Census.) KETROW, JOHN, M, b. in Nebraska KETROW, THOMAS, M, b. in Nebraska(abt. 1865) KETROW , ELIZA, F, b.in Iowa (abt. 1869) (this is my grandmother ) KETROW, FANNIE, F, b. in Iowa (abt. 1870) Based on the in formation at hand, ETHAN ALLEN KETROW probably married MARIA CATHERINE (family has her name ROLLFFREE but I believe that it is spelled different, possibly Rolfe, there is a Rol e in the 1830 Federal Census for Indiana)around middle 1840 's and lived in Indiana for a while and later (around middle 1850's moved to Nebraska City, Nebraska. He was first a carpenter, later on a farm laborer and later on a wagon maker. There is a break between 1860 and 1865 which possibly indicates that he took part in the Civil War and later returned to Nebraska. Later on he moved to Iowa, Wayne County and from there to Appanoosa County. I will check the Appanoosa Census for 1880 and see if they lived there at that time . Please lets keep in touch and see what we can find out . I am Alicia M. Vostrejs and my address is 166 Deer Lake Circle, Ormond Beach, Florida 32174-4275.
