Righter/Rightler/Reightler/Reidler et al

I am researching my family name of Rightler/Reightler in PA and MD, Baltimore specificall and possibly York and Adams Co's. Records show that my GGGF Elias Rightler listed in MD 1840 census as being born in "PA". Elias does not show in Adam/York County but there numerous Rightler families in Dauphin/Schullkyll(sp) co's none show an Elias. Elias married Margaret Rider in Baltimore Dec 1832 and raised a family in Baltimore. Elias died btween 1850 and 60 census. no record. Was his name other than Rightler? Reiter/Reidler,etc. Large "Nickler" Rightler family in those PA areas. No conn so far. Any help appreciated. Ken Reightler VA Beach,VA <> 757-464-5892
