I am trying to get more info on my grandfather's ancestors. His name was Charles William Rittenhouse, b. 1885, Phillipsburg, PA and died approx. 1946, Logansport, IN. I know his father's name was Edwin Armour Rittenhouse and his mother was Florence Catherine (DeArmitt--maiden name). Any info would be appreciated.

Surnames: DeArmitt
I'm sorry to report that I have no information on your grandfather, but the name Florence Catherine DeArmitt caught my attention. I am trying to look into my husband's DeArmitt genealogy but am having a hard time. I know that his branch of the family originated in Pennsylvania (I think Barnabas was the name there). John DeArmitt came to Indiana (Roanoke, Huntington, Fort Wayne area) in the first half of the 19th century. His son was Henry DeArmitt; grandson was Oscar (b. 1905); ggrandson was my husband (b.1942). You'd think that my search would be easy because DeArmitt is an uncommon name, but it seems that there are many ways to spell it. Maybe Florence DeArmitt fits into an ancestor's family tree that can give me some further information.

I would appreciate any help you could give me. Carol DeArmitt

I could not find any info in my tree. They marry their kids to kids kids to kids and it can be hard to find someone.
