I am hoping to share an original Civil War Letter with any of his family. He was the brother to my G-G-Grandmother, Mary Roe Ketchum Vial. I also went to Washington DC to look up his CIvil War records and found that they are not on film. However His official records are in a special record room. I did get to touch, see and copy his War records. What an experience.

I notice you mention a Ketchum from Iowa.
I am looking for any Ketchums who lived in
Iowa. Including a Fanny Ketchum who married
Bliss Welch Webb, and a William Ketchum who
married Harriet Sawyer. They lived in Fayette
county, Iowa.
I am looking to find their parents!

Do you have the BOOK "Genealogy of Edmund
Rescue Ketchum"? If you don't, I have a
copy of some of the pages, which tells the
children and marriages of these people, and
Phineas and Mary are listed!!

Do you have any info on a Vera Ketchum/Vanwinkle from Iowa. She had at least two daughters-one was my Grandmother Iola. Iolas was born around 1916 in Griswold and Vera died soon after.

I'm not sure this is the same person, this is the info I have: previous married name: Iola Mae Longacre, 2nd? marriage was to William Elroy Ketchum 11-12-1955, they had 3 childred Albert b. 1956, Jody Vi b.1957, and Kandy Kay b. 1958. Iola died in Jan-Feb 1960. Again, I don't know if this is the same person, or even possibly a relative, let me know. Thanks

My grandmother's mother's maiden name was supposedly Ketchum. And her first name was Vera. She marrried a Van Winkle or Vanwinkle. I have a remembrance from Vera's funeral. She died Dec 2, 1918. In the 1910 census for Griswold IA where my grandmother Iola grew up, there was a Vera Gifford living with Faye? (probably Gifford) and a Joe Gifford age 9. Faye was 38 and Vera was 11 which makes her the right age. I am not sure if this is the right Vera or not. I am now thinking maybe it was Faye that was a Ketchum and married a Gifford. In the 1910 census Faye, Vera, and Joe Gifford were living with Charlie Kincaid, who is who raised my Grandmother after her parents died. It is all circumstantial but it makes sense. My grandmother had an older sister, and we think her name was Bernice. Vera would have been very young when she married/had Bernice about 15 or 16 which is pobbible for those days. I spoke with the daughter of my grandmothers 1/2 cousin (Gloria) and her middle name is Faye and said it is a family name. Do you have any info on a FAye Ketchum? Gloria also swears she remembers going to a Ketchum cemetary and seeing Vera Vanwinkle's grave. She also remembers hearing of "Ketchum Corners" in Iowa also, outside of Griswold. Let me know if any of this sounds familiar. Thanks for your help! My email is

The info you sent doesn't ring a bell, however I have very little info on her. Her married name was Ketchum, husband to William Elroy Ketchum. I'll check some papers and get back to you. Thanks
