The name Wrider is possibly a derivation
coming from one or two places. I believe
it is a derivation of "writere" the English
word/name given to scribes meaning "copier
of manuscripts". I believe my name to be
a derivation of Richter from Germany. It is
possible yours is off similar origin and
your name was "Americanized" to hide your
ancestors from religious persecution. My
family was also located in PA. Hope that
Helps. MMW
