Hi Corinna,

I took a look at the 1901 census and see there were other children and that may be the way to follow the family.

1901 had the family listed as RITCHIE
Oliver age 50 born May 12, Quebec
Mary age 27 born March 28, 1874 ON
Mary E. age 8 born Feb. 20, 1893 ON
Louis age 6 born April 24, 1894 ON
Angeline L. age 5 born Oct. 17, 1895 ON
Thomas L. age 2 born Aug. 9, 1898 ON
Ella J. age 7/12 born Sept. 8, 1900 ON

There is a marriage for Louie Rishea age 22 to Bertha Bradley age 18 Oct. 17, 1916 Norwich, Oxford Co. ON
His parents Oliver Rishea and Mary Viola Hannigan
Hers Thomas Bradley and Louisa Chambers


Thomas Levi Richie age 28, married Mary Elmire Bourgan age 31, Oct. 15, 1927 Parry Sound
his parents Oliver Richie and Viola Hannigan
hers Napoleon Bourgan and Annie Doxtater


Ella Richie age 19 married Angelo Binda age 28, April 19, 1919 Parry Sound
her parents Oliver Richie and Viola Hannigan
his Frederick Binda and Assunta Piscia


Mary Ritchie age 14 married Joseph Aiello age 18 Dec. 30, 1907 Parry Sound
her parents O. Ritchie and M. Hannigan
his F. Aiello and L. Wattler

so that covers all of the children except for Angeline and I have not found her in marriages yet.
I also still cannot find the family in 1911 census - I tried using first names only as Rishea seems to be spelled many ways.

I cannot find a second marriage for Oliver, nor a death for him and cannot find him in 1911 census so I have no idea what happened to him.
