The following excerpt is from: The History of Menard and Mason Counties, Illinois, compiled by Rev R.D. Miller and Gen. J.M. Ruggles, published in 1879, Kilbourne Township, Page 807.

"Lemon A. Ketcham, farmer; P.O. Kilbourne; was born in Oswego Co., N.Y., and came with his parents when they located in this county. His father, Hiram Ketcham, in 1849, was struck by lightning, and lay helpless and unconscious for the space of twenty four hours--finally recovered, but died subsequently, Aug. 7, 1864. The marriage of Mr. Ketcham has been blessed with a family of six children, three of whom are married--Mary E., to James Chaney Sept. 5, 1871; Nancy M., to William A. Craggs, son of William Craggs, March 3, 1872; John B. Ketcham, to Pollie A. Tond Sept. 26, 1873. He has always been engaged in farming, and he has a snug farm one mile northeast of Kilbourne."
