KITCHER FAMILY: England to Texas
This is the information I have about HARRY EDWARD KITCHER, husband of IRMA VALENTINE.
Harry was born Oct. 11, 1887 in Texas and died Apr. 22, 1946 in Palestine, Anderson County, Texas. His wife, Irma Valentine, was born about 1894 in Texas. Harry and Irma had two children, IRMA AND KATHERINE.
Harry's father is HENRY "HARRY" KITCHER, born Mar. 6, 1847 in Fawley Parish, Hampshire County, England and died Apr. 25, 1922 in Palestine, Texas.
Harry's mother is MARY ELIZA DUDLEY, born Nov. 9, 1847 in Lepe, Hampshire County, England and died Feb. 20, 1914 in Palestine, Texas.
Harry may have had a brother named Robert Dudley Kitcher, who married Bessie Daniels in 1895 in Palestine, Texas.
Harry's grandparents are JOHN KITCHER and SARAH WHEELER. John was born Mar. 16, 1817 in Fawley Parish, Hampshire, England and died before 1880 in Palestine, Texas. Sarah was born Mar. 2, 1823 in Hardley, Hampshire, England and died in Palestine, Texas.
Here is the link between our two Kitcher lines:My great-grandfather, FREDERICK WILLIAM KITCHER, SR., is brother of Henry "Harry" Kitcher.
Note this correction: On my first posting, dated August 7, 2003, I indicated that there were four consecutive John Kitchers in my direct line. New information indicates that the parents of John Kitcher ("III"), husband of Elizabeth Noyce, MIGHT be Aaron Kitcher and Elizabeth Sansom rather than John Kitcher ("II") and Sarah Mew.More research needed!
Hope this helps.
