Excerpt from "History of Schuylkill County"

By: Adolf  W. Schalck and David C. Henning

Published by State Historical Association, 1907


Ketner, William B., was born in West Brunswick township, near Molino,

Schuylkill County, September 7, 1869, a son of Frank & Rebecca (Hoy)
Ketner. He is the third son of a family of three sons and three daughters:

George W., Mary, Emma R., Allen F., William B., and Bella.

George, Mary, Bella and Allen are deceased. Allen married Sallie Faust,

daughter of Jacob Faust, and they had two children, Ollie and Herman. Allen

died in 1896. Emma is the wife of John M. Hardinger, of Pinedale. The

father of William B. Ketner was engaged as a  farmer during the active portion of

his life, but is now living retired. His wife died July 29, 1906, at the age of

seventy-one years.  William B. Ketner was graduated from the township schools,

after which he took a course at the normal schools at Kutztown, Pennsylvania

and later one in the Northwestern normal school at Valparaiso, Indiana.

He adopted the profession of  the teacher and taught school in Brunswick

township for fourteen years. In 1901, he concluded to change his occupation

and went into a general mercantile business at Pinedale, with which business he is

at present occupied. He has a finely equipped store, and uses up-to-date methods

in his management of his establishment. Mr. Ketner was married June 1, 1894

to Miss Anna Fahl. They have four children, one son and three daughters,

Helen E., Leon V., Ada M., and Grace M., all of whom are living.

Mr. Ketner is a member of the Symmetry Lodge No. 103, Independent

Order of Odd Fellows, of Hamburg, and is present Grand in his lodge.

His political affiliations are Democratic, and he is at present a justice of the peace,

an office which he has held for two terms, and is now a candidate for a third term.

The Family are of Lutheran faith, and are members of the Zion's Red church

of Pinedale. Mr. Ketner is a deacon of the church and president of the joint church

council, and was president of the committee in charge of the anniversary celebration

which was held in 1905 and which was known as sesqua-centennial.
