Andrew Jackson Straw's, funeral book list his mother Elizabeth died Nov 2, 1919. While other children list her death as listed above.
Elizabeth was the wife of William Jackson Straw buried next to him in this cemetery. Elizabeth was the daughter of Andrew Kettner and Mary Jane Gladfelter/Glattfelter.
Elizabeth had two children before she married William J.Straw. The first was a son named Lyman Owen Barner born in 1868 in Clinton County, Pennsylvania. He only used the name Owen. His last name was later changed to King. Elizabeth had a daughter named Minnie Elota King in 1871.
Elizabeth was living with her daughter Lillie May Straw-Griffin in Okmulgee, Oklahoma when she died. Elizabeth's son Andrew Jackson Straw and his family lived next door to Lillie in 1920.
The Kettner and Gladfelter/Glattfelter lines came to America in the early 1700's and settled in Pennsylvania. Both families have towns named after them.
Andrew Kettner and his family, 7 children out of 8 left Pennsylvania. They were Elizabeth Jane, Elmira, Mary Rasata, Susan Catherine, Harvey Adam, Frances Amanda and Richard Daniel. Andrew's son William Best was born 5-27-1848 and died 11-15-1850 in Pennsylvania.
Andrew and the family first settled in Keokuk County, Iowa in 1869. They shortly moved to Marshalltown, Marshall County, Iowa.
Andrew, Mary and a few of their children lived out their lives around Marshalltown.
Elizabeth was my great grandmother. I am a descendant of her son Andrew Jackson Straw.
