Josephine is the daughter of Julius H. Thiele, a merchant tailor, who arrived with her by boat from St Lois, Mo. in Omaha in 1867. Josephine married George W. Ketcham in Feb. 1884 when she was 18, and George was 28 years old. Together they had 7 children: Ethel C. (1884-1979), Georgia Theresa, (1886-1976) Harvey Peter, (1890-1893), Myrtle, (1893-1895), Earl Frances, (1895-1978), Agnes J.(Mrs. Everett Joseph Steinheimer.) (1899-1945) Paul Gardiner,(1888-1957)

NOTE: Josephine was the only child of Julius and unknown mother who perished before she and her father came to Omaha. He remarried but they had no children together.

Note also, in the obituary SISTER M. STEPHEN, is not a sibling of Josephine but the youngest sister of George W Ketcham, Nelly Grace Ketcham, who joined the Sisters of St. Francis in Stella Niagara, New York.
