Tombstone Tuesday - Charles & Dianna Ritter

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

I found these to be very interesting tombstones. I believe there was engraving on the 'foot' stones but the engraving was too worn to read.

In 1860 Charles & Dianna were living in Rittersville, Hanover Twp., Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. He was the owner of the hotel & store. Charles had taken these over after the death of his father, the founder of Rittersville.

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.
