Birth: 1840

KETCHAM, GEORGE HALE was born in Towanda, Pennsylvania, February 20, 1840 and died in Auburn March 9, 1912, aged 72 years and 18 days. When six years of age, his parents moved to Turner Junction, now West Chicago, Illinois, which place was his home until three years ago when he moved to Roseville where he has since resided with his son. In 1864 he was united in marriage with Miss Annie McKenna and to this union were born five children, four sons and a daughter. Three of the sons died before the father. Mr. Ketcham was a railroad man being in the employ of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific system, running out of Chicago, since the early sixties. In 1868 he lost a leg in an accident at Wilton Junction, Iowa.He was a true, brave-hearted railroader of the older days, always kindly and generous and will be sadly missed where he was best known. For weary weeks, he had been a sufferer with a complication of diseases, but the sudden end was entirely unexpected. There are left to mourn the son Lucius Ketcham with whom he made his home, the daughter Miss Nellie Ketcham of Chicago, and a brother and sister of Chicago. The funeral service was held from the undertaking parlors in Roseville, Monday, March 11th at 1:30 PM, and the interment was in the Odd Fellows Cemetery, Hugh S. Jackson officiating. Roseville Register, 3-15-1912, Friday.
