circa 1840-2004, undated
Creator:
Ritter
Extent: 2.2 linear feet (; 6 boxes)
This family history collection documents the Ritter family and its ancestors beginning in the late 18th century. Diaries, autobiographies, memorandum books, family photos, and legal papers comprise the bulk of the material that spans almost 200 years (1773-1962). The collection focuses heavily on James Hansell Ritter (1859-1912) and his wife, Mary LeBaron Stoddard Ritter (1867-1949), both descendants of William Bradford, the governor of Plymouth Colony from 1622 until 1656. The couple’s lineage is documented in Series 1 which houses genealogical notes including a letter dated 25 December 1872 and an application for membership in the Pennsylvania Society of the Colonial Dames of America. Many of the ancestors appear in original or copied photographs in Series 2. Material related to ancestors and relatives of James Hansell Ritter - including his maternal great-great grandfather, Jacob Ehrenzeller, Sr. (1725-1798); his paternal grandfather, Jacob Ritter, Jr. (1784-1840); his father Bradford Ritter, Sr. (1828-1878); his sister Mary Ritter (1865-1934); and his brother Bradford Ritter, Jr. (1860-1944) - can be found in Series 3. Approximately one half of the collection is housed in Series 4 which includes scrapbooks, diaries, newspaper clippings, lecture notes, and other items once belonging to James Hansell Ritter and his wife, Mary LeBaron Stoddard Ritter. Series 5 is a small collection of miscellaneous items including some sketches and hand-drawn maps (undated). (View full finding aid.)
