I can't answer your first question regarding the father/step-grandfather last name query but I can tell you that Johnson Ketcher was my great-grandfather. His son, Issac, was my grandfather. Issac (deceased) married my grandmother, Mabel (deceased 8/8/86), who was Cherokee Indian but I question whether she was full Indian. I am told she was full Indian but did not list herself on the Roll Call list as my grandfather had done because her family felt she would have a better chance in life not to acknowledge her Indian heritage. Issac had three children, John D. Ketcher; Ross Lee Ketcher(Born 12/20/26) and Katricia Marie Ketcher. John D. Ketcher (who died last fall) had four sons and one daughter who are all still living. Katricia Marie Ketcher never married and lives down south. Ross Lee Ketcher (died 11/1/66) had two marriages. The first marriage resulted in son and daughter. The daughter died soon after birth and is buried with Ross, Issac and Mabel. The second marriage was to my mother, Frances Louise Stewart (Born 1/20/39). They had five children. Katricia Lee Ketcher (Born 11/15/54), now married with a son and daughter; Jaye Deen Rose Lee Ketcher (Born 1/10/57), now married with five sons and two daughters; Ross Lee Ketcher II (Born 12/13/59) and has four daughters; Rowdy Lee Ketcher (Born 1/9/60), divorced with two sons; Francine Virginia Lee Ketcher (Born 4/10/61), married twice with two sons. I am not sure whether you want more exact information. Let me know. I have more facts..this is just off the top of my head. Also, if I can locate it, I actually have a picture of Johnson Ketcher. He looks more Mexican than Indian in the picture. If I can locate it, would you like me to e-mail to you? Hope I have been Helpful.. Jaye Deen Navo

I was wondering if this is the Johnson Ketcher who was married to a Sarah Holloway. Issac married Mabel Roberts, her mothers name is Edith Wickett and father is John Wesley Roberts? Issac had a sister Nancy Ketcher-Russell-Elam?
Nancy is my Great-Grandmother.

My great-grandfather was named Johnson Ketcher. He had a son named Issac Ketcher. Issac was my grandfather. He was married to Mabel Roberts. Issac also had a sister named Nancy. Nancy is my great-aunt. Issac and Mabel's marriage broke up before I was old enough to know Issac. He died in 1969 and is buried with Mabel (died 8/8/86) and my father, Ross Lee Ketcher (died 11/1/66 at age 39) along with my father's infant daughter who died shortly after birth. It looke like we are related! Thanks for returning my message, Jaye Deen

Are the rest of Nancy's sisters and brothers named Alice, Susie, Lee, Celia, Isaac, and Cora? If so, you might want to contact Kathy Pitts at this web as she had additional info. Jaye Deen

While researching Johnson Ketcher I found that only he was listed as Full Blooded CHEROKEE INDIAN while Nancy and the other siblings were listed as only 1/2% CHEROKEE INDIAN. I found it under RootsWeb.com
under Native American Data. It showed Johnson as 34 when the other children were 10 years and younger. Nancy was only 5 years old when Johnson was 34 years old. There must have been a second marriage??
Nancy was listed as:
Nancy Ketcher
Tribe: Cherokee
Record Type: Enrollment
Age: 5
Sex:f
Enrollment type: BB (By Blood)
Blood %: 1/2%
Card Number# 7488
Roll Number # 17721
You may already have this but just in case...here it is. I was already there so it wasn't that much to copy info on Nancy for you. Jaye Deen

The nancy I am speaking off is a sister to Issac and her father is Johnson. She married a william Russell in the early 20's and had 5 sets of boy girl twins, then married a Robert elam and then had 3 more kids. I don't recall meeting Nancy, I would have to ask my mom, but she died in 1993 in Grove, OK. Do you know where the Buckett Cemetery is located?
I know Johnson was Lee Ketchers father that is buried there.
I also know that Johnson was married to a Sarah Holloway who decended from Ireland.

Your post interested me because Isaac & Mabel are my great-grandparents. I was wondering where you got the names of Mabel's parents. My grandmother, who does ancestry, research, says that Mabel was adopted and she has no clue who the real parents are. Maybe you found out. I noticed that on the death certificate of one of her children, it lists her maiden name as Walker and not Roberts. Maybe this was her adopted last name? Any info you have would be of great interest to me.
I have found a lot of info myself on Isaac's side. One thing I think has been overlooked by those doing research on the Ketchers is that there is Native American ancestry on Sarah Hollloway's side of the family as well as Johnson Ketcher's. It is not documented (as with Mabel) but from my research, she was about one-quarter Native American, mostly Cherokee but also part Choctaw and Nansemond (a Canadian Indian tribe). Sarah also had Jewish ancestry through her maternal grandparents, Isaac & Mahala Jane (Blevins) Cooper. I would be happy to give you more info if you like.
