Died: c.1842,	Fannin Co., TX
Jacob Ketchem was on 1815 tax list for Bledsoe County, TN.  Jacob was found to be in 
Blount Co., AL 1830 on page 12 of the census records, recorded as Jacob Cotchum, 
age 20-30, along with a female age 20-30.  
Shortly thereafter he was in Texas and fought in the Texas war of Independence 
from Mexico. He served under (1st. Lt) John P. Simpson, Detachment of Fannin Co. 
Mounted Gunmen, 2 Regt., 4 Brig., Texas Militia, Dec 1, 1838 - Jan 14, 1839. 
After the war he received a land grant from the Republic of 
Texas of 1,280 
acres in Fannin District, TX for his service.  The grant was a Second
Class Headright, 
issued to those who arrived between March 2, 1836 and October 1, 1837. 
Heads of families 
received 1,280 acres.  
Jacob Ketcham was the original grantee (the person who was awarded the land).  
After fulfilling any conditions of the grant, such as making improvements, 
and paying any required fees, the individual could then apply for a patent 
(the original title from the government) from the Texas General Land Office. 
The patent was issued 18 Feb 1845 to the Heirs of Jacob Ketcham, patent number 245, 
patent volume 1, Certificate 11, file number 41. The land is now known on property maps
 of Fannin County as the Jacob Ketcham Survey, Abstract 608.  On 2 Jun 1842 in (Fannin) 
TX  Mary Ketchum, widow of Jacob, married George W. McNutt and some time later 
they moved to Lawrence Co., Arkansas.  Jacob's brother Peter and the rest of the 
family filed a legal action in Tarrant County, TX (Fort Worth) to try to claim the 
land, but apparently to no avail.  It was this court action that produced the 
affadavit saying that Edward was known to be the father of Peter, Jacob, and 
the other children.  Another (earlier) action in Blount County, Alabama produced a similar 
affadavit.  See notes for Edward Ketchum.

Peter Razor (Reasor?) Ketchum is mentioned in the Blount County Alabama Court - 
Final Record - Feb. 18, 1825, Page 54 - Peter Ketchum vs. Vestal Beeson
(no further information).  
Later that year Peter Razor Ketchum married Ann Burrell in Blount Co. on Oct. 12, 1825.

Married: John W. NIBLETT, Blount Co., Al

Christiana KETCHUM

Married:Thomas FERRELL		
Christiana was probably the "Anna" mentioned as wife of Mr. Sutherland in the 1848 
Blount County affadavit of Glasscock and Chamblee, listing the children of Edward.  
This would have been a marriage some time after Thomas Ferrell.

2nd Spouse:	Jane HULSEY

Married: 12 Oct 1825
Blount County, AL
Spouse:	Peter R KETCHUM		
"Razor Ketchum" married Ann Burrell on 12 October 1825 in Blount
County, AL.  This must be Peter Reasor Ketchum.  However, that presents
a conflict when we look at the birth date of Peter's daughter Isabella
Ketchum if we assume that the children born prior to Isabella were born
of another mother.  Isabella was born 19 October 1825.  It's possible
that all of the children were born of Ann Burrell and they were only
married later.  This was not that uncommon in the frontier wilderness
when there were few churches or preachers.  People would pledge
themselves to each other and, later, marry before a preacher.

was also reported in Captain Graves Company of Home Guard. Robert I.
Chamblee married Louvisa Callahan 26 Jan 1860, Blount County [D-299].
According to his Confederate pension applications, Chamblee claimed he
was wounded at the battle of Kennesaw Mountain in 1864; honorably
discharged 10 Jun 1865; application witnesses included P.H. Ratliff,
Reuben Putman, Elsa M. Schlosser, J.C. McAnnally, and A.A. Griffith,
all of Blount County. Chamblee reported: I was captured by yankees at
Decatur and was taken to Huntsville and started with me to Nashville

children. According to the Blount County Death Register, Chamblee died

Calvin Chamblee in Blount County. Another Chamblee researcher, Karen
Kitchens Murphy ( believes Calvin Chamblee actually

records in Blount County for the late 1840s time period are missing
from the Blount County Courthouse and so far, no other corroborating
evidence has surfaced.
