Henry Ketterer, the father, was born in Germany and was a young man when he came to America and settled in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, where he purchased a farm. Later he sold that property and came to Perry Township, Lawrence County, and bought the present farm of his son George, on which he died in advanced age. He married Caroline Wolf, who was a daughter of John Wolf, of Butler County. They had a family of nine children, of whom eight now survive.
George Ketterer was four years old when his parents came to Perry Township and he has spent his whole subsequent life here, engaging in farming after completing his school attendance. After his father died he bought out the other heirs and thus is sole owner of the old homestead. It is excellent land, very favorably located and Mr. Ketterer is prosperous. In early manhood he married Elizabeth Wehman, who is a daughter of Frederick Wehman, of Lawrence County, and they have nine children, namely: Minnie, Caroline, Effie, Matilda, Margaret, Mary, John, William, and Hazel. Effie is the wife of Charles Hazen. Politically, Mr. Ketterer is identified with the Democratic party. He is a Christian Scientist.
