William H. Rittenhouse and Elizabeth

Does anyone have any info on William H. Rittenhouse b. CA 1782 d. 1848 and his Abigail Lawrence (1st) Catherine Strouse (2nd)? William H. lived in Harrisburg, Dauphin, PA for a while, as well as Rush, Dauphin, PA according to census records. He is also buried in Dauphin county.

He had several children, but I don't know if they were born in there. I don't think William H. was from there originally either.

I have a copy of a land agreement that shows that his mother's name was Elizabeth and that her husband must have passed away already because she was currently married to a man named John Brooks.

I'm looking for any clues as to who his parents are. If I could get maiden name for Elizabeth or a father's name, that would be huge.
