Johanne Dorothee Koetteritzsch was born to Heinrich and Dorothee (Krug) Koetteritzsch on 30 Aug. 1815 in Naumburg, Saxony. She married Georg David Schulze on 21 June 1840. Georg, who was a master carpenter, died in 1852. Johanne then married Leopold August Kettner on 23 Jan 1853. August, as he was called, was born 15 Jan. 1824 in Coswig, Anhalt, Saxony, to the gardener Johann Christoph Gottlieb Kettner and his wife, Johanne Dorothee Scholz. August's profession was also master carpenter.

The Kettners had two daughters, Friederike Auguste Kettner, born 8 Nov. 1853, and Johanne Louise Wilhelmine Kettner, born 9 Jan. 1858. The Kettner family belonged to the church which is now called Evangelische Kirchengemeinde St. Nicolai Coswig. In English this would be St. Nicolas Lutheran Church.

The Kettner's daughter Auguste married, first, Johann Heinrich Ladewig, and second, Max Gross. Their daughter Johanne married Edward O. Meitzen.
