Sharon, this is very interesting and close.....I will really keep this
information close by hoping for more on my family...All I have is that Noah
Wolf and Annie J. (and I've also had Ella) Rittgers were married 3-23-1877.
No birth or death dates...yet. Their children were:
Rosa Myrtle (my grandmother),b. 3-31-1880 m. Nathan Starr.
Cora married a Gump
I think I can find more I just usually concentrate on my STARR family and
JEWELL families from the same area....If any of these sound familiar please
let me know.
