Am looking for info.on Enoch Kettle who married Mary Smith circa 1890. As an adult he lived in Wolverhampton, England. I suspect he might have been born in Newcastle -U- Lyme, Staffs. Verbal history suggests that he joined the army during the Boer War. He changed his name (unofficially) to Cattell circa 1900. Did he abscond and change his name as a result? He might have joined the South Staffs Regiment. Do they have any records? Children were Isaac, Thomas, Elizabeth, Enoch, Jack, Harry.

My father was Thomas Kettles born in New York City, USA circa December 6, 1911 or 12 or 13. He married Mary Dowling in Fort Benning, Ga. where he was stationed as a First Lieutenant in 1941 apx. My fathers mothers name was Sara or Sarah and my father had two sisters - an older one Agnes and a younger one Ruth. Ruth had three children - Vincent, Seran and Kathy. I have no idea of what happened to my cousins. I know that Ruth is dead. My cousins would be in their 50's. I don't know much about my dad's family because my parents were divorced when I was three and I didn't see much of my dad. He died in 1981. My father's cousin is John Boyle who is 88 or 89and lives in Florida. They grew up in Hell's Kitchen in NYC. I know he thought of himself as Irish American but I see that many Kettles' are from England originally.I would love to hear from anyone with info about the Kettles family. Also, I only know it was rumored my grandfather may have built railroads in the west but this is pure speculation. He died long before I was born and my grandmother remarried and he was dead by the time I was born in 1950.

I have stumbled across a tiny Kettle link while researching the Statham family so I thought I would post it here in case it is of interest to someone. The death certificate for Joseph Statham, who was born in Staffordshire on Feb 27 1881 (some sources say Feb 28), lists his parents as James Statham and Thirza Kettle. Both were born in England. Joseph died in hospital in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada but had been living in Nanaimo BC prior to that. His father, James, who was born in England in 1855, died in Nanaimo on July 19 1929. He also had two sisters who emigrated to Canada, Annice and Thirza. Thirza was born about 1886 in England. She came to Canada later than her father and may have come with her husband Walter Wharton. According to the family, Thirza Kettle Statham did not come with her husband when he emigrated although she was alive at that time.
If this strikes a cord with anyone I'd be happy to look up more information at this end. I gather it was some sort of unhappy family circumstance that split the family so someone at your end may have dead ended at Thirza Kettle Statham... and she has descendents who are alive and well in Canada.

Recently found the biography of my great-great-great grandparents... William Gibbs and Sarah Creamer. The book "History of Ogle County IL 1878" states that Sarah was the daughter of John Creamer and Parah Kettle. I suspect it's a miss print and should be Sarah... but I'm just speculating - if someone has a Parah, I'd be thrilled! Location is Maryland, USA and time period would be late 1700's early 1800's... I don't have Sarah Creamer's birth date but William Gibbs is 1808. Any leads would be greeted with great joy! Thanks

John KETTLE: Married: 23 June 1839 Catherine DOUGHERTY at Port of Dundas, Lanark, Scotland. Children: Anne, Catherine, David & Thomas born in Scotland, date unknown. Their existence comes strictly from family lore. Other children: Thomas, Glasgow, 21 December 1851; Elizabeth, 24 September 1854; Hannah, 12 November 1856, Robert, 15 February 1861. The above information is from U.S. Civil War pension records. At the time of his enlistment in New York's 13th Heavy Artillery Regiment on 22 August 1863, John Kettle gave his age as 44. Catherine claimed marriage by a Rev. Mr. Moore, a Minister of the Gospel, on 16 July 1839 in Glasgow, Scotland. Barony Parish, Lanark. Parochial Registers record a marriage "John Kettle iron moulder Port of Dundas and Catherine Dougherty residing there" on 23 June 1839. I am seeking both others who may be researching the same line and the names, etc of the parents of both John Kettle and Catherine Dougherty.
