Mark Ritcey I am a Mark Ritcey 19, of Toronto, and I want to meet some of my reletives in Nova Scotia. You may know my dad Tom Ritcey and his dad Ralph Ritcey, and Ralphs cousin Jerry Ritcey. I like the Ritcey Monument in Nova Scotia and want to keep in touch with the family. I did some reserach on the net, and found out that there is another Mark Ritcey, that lives in Nova Scotia, and is a lead swimmer. My email is [contact link]. Contact me family members. Peace

Lisa Meeker Hathaway Thrygve C J Mark was born Feb 26 1988 and died Feb 1969. His parents were Hans Peter Jensen Mark (1847-?) and Josephine Christiansen (1851-?). They were married about 1871 and immigrated to America. Peter in 1880 and Josephine in 1884 if the census records are correct. Hans Peter Jenson added Mark to his last name when he emigrated from Norway. On the 1910 US Census he uses the surname Jensen while the 1900 Census uses the Surname Mark. His son's Thrygve and Herman both have a middle Initial J which probably stands for Jensen. I am trying to find more information on this family as their eldest daughter Elvira Helena married John File Meeker, and their son Thrygve is my grandfather. We were told that the name Thrygve meant "Sun" in Norwegian but I have not found the name in the norwegian name sites I have looked at.
