RITTER in St. Tammany Par. before 1820
Posted by: Bob Martin (ID *****3034) Date: October 30, 2006 at 09:04:54
  of 187

On the 1820 Census of Washington Par., LA is a "widow Riter" on pg. 188, line 17. This is just after the division of St. Tammany Par. and the formation of Washington Par. from the northern half. About 1821 Martha (Patsy) RITTER married William GILLESPIE and they moved to Copiah Co., MS about 1823/'24. William GILLESPIE died there in 1829 and Martha was head of household on the 1830 Census of Copiah Co.

Martha (Patsy) RITTER was born in Georgia about 1800. Does anyone have any clues to the parents of Martha or of the presence of any RITTERs in St. Tammany Par. prior to 1820.
