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.

Death:1872 Place: Prob. Athol,Prince Edward Co.,Ont.,Can.

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..
