    Notes 
    • From an e-mail from Peggy Collela, who maintains cemetery lists for Tennessee:

      "What I have doesn't match your information exactly, but I think this is
      what you are looking for. In the Old Beech Cemetery, located at Shackle
      Island on Long Hollow Pike outside of Gallatin (the oldest cemetery in
      the country), I have:
      Barbara KETRING Died 17 Mar. 1824 Aged 68 years
      Francis (Catron) KETRING Died 15 July 1819 Aged 74 yrs. Marker for
      Revolutionary Soldier 1755 - 1819


      There are some others, Peter, Jane, Angeline, Blanch, another Francis and
      his wife Harriet. If you need dates on them, let me know. There were no
      listings for any of the other spellings, only this KETRING.

      From a post on a genealogy forum:

      "There was a Ketring family in Sumner Co. Francis Ketring left a will in 1819. He named wife Barbary, sons Peter, Christopher, and Phillip of PA. Mentioned had conveyed part of plantation to Hurband Toplry (also as Hurband Tossly in same will)."

      From "Sumner County Will Abstracts":

      Ketring, Francis, 24 Apr 1819 - Life estate to wife Barbara, sons Peter and Christopher, son Phillip of Lancaster Co., Pa, sons Everard Ellis, Benjamin Taylor, James Ellis and Hurburd Tapley. Land bought of Leonard Dugger. Ex: Ketring, Peter; Ketring Barbara. Wt: Nye, Shadrach; Hampton, Wade; Ellis, John.

    Name:
    • Johann Franz Kettering was also known by Americanized spellings of his name, i.e., "Francis Ketring", "Francis Ketron", "Francis Catron".

      His grave marker shows his name as "Francis (Catron) Ketring", and his signature on the Cumberland Compact is "Francis Catron".
