Tommy, I have waited for years for some one to ask about this family. About 1900 in Huntington, Co Indiana,(I think I am right about the county)There were 4 small boys put into an orphanage, I could not get any information on them,but, onename was Lawrence, James, and I think one was named Alex. and I don't remember the other one.I will have to do some research on them. I am sure that they were from the Johannes Jacob family.These little boys ranged in age from 2 until about 12. I have oftened wondered if they were seperated out, of if they stayed in the orphans homne until they were grown. I have never been able to find any trace of them.
What part of the Panhandle did they settle in.Could it have been up close to Dumas or Amarillo. ??
The Ketner's in Indiana in the early 1800 until 1900 were all from the Johannas Jacob family, except my 2 gggrand father's, and, He was from the Francis(Frantz ) Line. Jacob and Francis were brother's.They left Berks county and went to North Carolina and Va. Francis to NC and Jacob to VA.they had another brother who was Johannas Nicholas, he first setteled in West VA and than moved on to Licking co Ohio.
