You can find alot of articles in the newspaper the "Simcoe Reformer". The site Paper of Record is free to join and download. You can search up to 5 years at a time.  (All I did was type in the last name, and came up with several articles.)

It looks like they lived in Atherton for a time and moved to Townsend Township.

They had a son named Victor who died at the age of 14, in 1942.

Good find J.J.

I think your right about that one. Looks like "Ketchen" to me.

Perhaps one of the libraries will have the marriage information?
