Brad Livermore I am currently researching My wife's mother's maiden name of Ritchie. I don't have much info, looking for more. This is what I have:

Alexander Ritchie, born July 9,1823 in Glasglow, Scotland. He was the son of James and Margaret Ritchie. He was a blacksmith by trade and a artist by hobby. He married Jane Reavis, daughter of Robert Reavis in 1842 or 1843. They came to America inbefore 1857. First record of ownership of land is in 1857, where he bought a farm in Pilot's Knob Knoll, Crawford County, Indiana. The house he built there still stands today. Alexander and Jane had six children. Jane died in 1863, Alexander then married Margaret Newkirk in 1863, they had no children. She died in 1864. Alexander then married Malnda Huffer in 1865. They had nine children. Alexander died in 1901 and Malinda died in 1900, they are both buried at Pilot's Knobb Knoll Cemetery. I have more info on most of the children. Would like to know more info on Alexander's ancestors, all info would be appreciated as well as info on the children's descendants.
