Tombstone Tuesday - Charles J Ritter family

Tombstone Tuesday is a blogging prompt at Geneabloggers. The suggestion is to post a tombstone(s) image and give a little information about the ancestor(s). Visit Geneabloggers to see more tombstones.

Rittersville Cemetery, St. Peter’s United Church of Christ
North Tacoma Street, Allentown, Pennsylvania

Charles J Ritter
Charles J Ritter
Born 11 June 1871
Died 30 October 1919
Aged 48 years, 4 months, 18 days
Son of William D Ritter, according to Find A Grave




Ida J Ritter
Born 10 August 1871
Died 22 January 1943
Wife of Charles J Ritter

Ida’s daughter and husband died in the same year. She had to be a strong lady to carry on.






Sabina C Ritter
Born 17 March 1905
Died 14 February 1919
Aged 13 years, 10 months, 27 days

A young life ended so early is always sad. Sabina, born on St Patrick’s Day & died on Valentines’ Day, was only 13. 

You can see more photos of Ritter tombstones. I posted the Ritter tombstone pictures on Find A Grave and in my Our Leaves & Branches Photos

  1. Was this one of the big epidemic years? I have several families with those close death dates -- always makes me rather sad imagining how the families managed.

  2. Wendy, good question. It might have been. I'll have to check that out.
