Hi!
About what time frame was your (I.?) James Ketchum living?
I have a Thadeus Ketchum In my family line and have never seen that name before in any other Ketchum lines, so I thought I'd answer your query to see if we may be researching the same line. Is your Ketchum family line exclusively from Canada or did they move there from the states?
Thanks!

I would like to expand upon this family line, and build their tree. This is all that I have on them.

The IGI confirms, in-so-far as it can. I believe it to be correct.

Father: Thaddeus Ketchum Mother: Elizabeth Haukinson

Apparently father's data, re IGI, is:

Event: Birth:1767/77 Place: Herkimer Co.,NYS,US
Death:1872 Place: Prob. Athol,Prince Edward Co.,Ont.,Can.

[1861 Census: PERSONAL CENSUS; Enumeration District 2; Athol tp 1861; Page 9

Ketchum, James; Age 63, M, U.S. origin; Disciple of Christ;Farmer]
Ketchum, T: Age 84; Disc.; m. 1797
Ketchum, E: Age 84; Disc.
others listed in family, including younger James, wife and issue. So, three generations living together on the farm at the time. With the younger James teaching in Bloomfield, PEC..

My data base:

197.11.iv.AMANDA7, b. Jan. 25, 1805; Prince Edward County; m. James Ketchum; d. in Athol Township, Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada, in 1885.

Al,
Unfortunately, this is not my line (as far as I know). My Thaddeus Roe Ketchum was born in 1883 and married a lady named Electra.His father was Allen Edward Ketchum. His grandfather was John Ketchum- all hailed from North Carolina.
Sorry I can't be of any help!
