Harriet Schritchfield, nee Rider born about 1844 in either IL or OH. She is the daughter of John & Elizabeth Rider. She and Henry were married in Shelby County, IL on 11 Jan 1866. Henry is the son of David Scritchfield & Malinda Vest, he was probably born in IN abt 1841. Henry served with Co. K of the 32nd Illinois Infantry. As for a civil war pension file, there probably won't be one as Henry deserted his unit on 5 Sep 1862. He returned to Il & married Harriet. Her family moved to Stone Co., MO and Henry & Harriet went with them. I have heard they may be buried in Taney Co. The Rider family is all buried in Stone Co. Henry is the brother of my grandmother Arminda Scritchfield Yates Wilson, who died about 1905 in Bourbon Co., Kansas. Have only been able to track 3 children belonging to this family, Arminda & her brothers Johnson and Isaac. Been looking for the others for a long time. Her sister, Minerva, appears to have died young. Any light you can shed on Henry & Harriet would be greatly appreciated.
