Elizabeth Dibblee

newspaper17 Oct 1895St. Andrews Beacon W.O. Raymond who has been writing the local history of Carleton in the columns of 'The Dispatch' has this to say respecting the Ketchum family ... Charles Ketchum was born in Norwalk, Conn. in the year 1770. He married Elizabeth DIBBLEE, the eldest child of Rev. Frederick DIBBLEE and this circumstance led to his moving to Woodstock about the year 1810 and settling on the farm now owned by his son, Major John D. KETCHUM which had been given up by Rev. F. Dibblee to his daughter as a marriage portion. In politics Charles was one of the tories of the olden time, a firm upholder of Church and State and the uncompromising anything that bordered on republicanism. He and his children after him were staunch supporters of the parish church at Woodstock and to it their gifts have been neither few nor small. Charles Ketchum survived his wife some twenty years and died March 14, 1856, aged 85 years.
