Ritchie / Ritchey in Kentucky

Ritchie / Ritchey in Kentucky

Posted: 1253542836000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Richie, Ritchey Ritchie
I am looking for any info on my GGrandmother.
I don't have any family able to help me in my search.

All I have are a few bits:

Margaret Ohma Ricthey
Born about 1896 in Kentucky

I was told there are no birth records bc of a fire which destroyed all the records.

Margaret later married Edward Cantillion. They lived in Missouri and had 11 children beginning about 1915.

If anyone has any info on Margaret Ritchey/Richie born in Kentucky- I would love a reply! Thanks!

Not my Ritchie family, just looked it up. I tried but did not find William's parents. Notice that on the WWI draft registrations Oma's brothers signed their names RITCHEY.
