  • Notes 

    • The name is also shown as Maria Eva GOETTGE and Mary Eva GOTTGEN. And Ruth Goodman (112 Brookwood, Rockingham, NC 28379) lists her as Mary Eve Ketchie, daughter of Hannes Ketchie. There is little doubt these are the same person. We apparently not the first to have difficulty spelling German names.
      Whatever the case, her nickname was apparently "Ketchey." There is some dispute among Eller historians about Jacob's daughter, Eve Eller. Janine Eller Porter says she is a daughter of Jacob by his second wife (which is what we show here). Ruth Goodman (in the Feb 93 "Chronicles") says she also believes Eve is a daughter of the second wife. Apparently, earlier published efforts have suggested she is a daughter of the first wife, Maria Eva Getchey. Ruth Goodman, however, believes daughter Elizabeth is also by the second wife.
