KETTLE-KITTLE FAMILY

Missouri-Indiana-New York


Most of this research has been done by other members of the Kettle/Kittle family. My family in Missouri know who they are and I thank them. To the other members of the extended Kittle family in Indiana and other places, this line wouldn't have been possible without your extended research.



This is the old Kettle place [Callaway Co., Missouri] - north of Prairie Fork- James E and Martha Susan Boone Kettle moved from here in 1907. This house was torn down about 1946 and a new home built on property. This picture is courtesy of Bessie Weeks, grandaughter of James E. and Martha Susan.
