Surname Saturday- Ketteler

Today's Surname: Ketteler

My 4th great grandmother was:
Euphemia Margaretha Ketteler
b. 20 Dec 1798 in Drievorden, Germany
d. 1860 in Hesepe, Germany

She married Johannes Jeckering (1799-1860) and they had 5 children- including my 3rd great grandfather, who immigrated to America. 

Euphemia's parents were:
Johann Theodor Ketteler (1769-1848) & Anna Maria Wolbers (1767-1851)

I'm not sure where the name Ketteler comes into her family-- her grandfather- Theodor Ketteler's (1719-1787) parents were Heinrich Hermeling (1678-1726) and Susanna Flodder (1690-1760).

According to Wikipedia- Ketteler (or Kettler) is the name of a German noble family of Westphalia.
