Captain Jeremiah Edwards Ritch

Life story of my third great-grandfather: Jeremiah Edwards Ritch

In 2012 I began exploring Ancestry.com while doing research on how older people use computers and the Internet.  In putting together the puzzle pieces that form the picture of my fore bearers’ lives I found detailed documentation of Captain Jeremiah E. Ritch, my third great-grandfather.  His story is pure Americana and there is little need to embellish the narratives taken from family stories and documents, newpapers and Census records.

As I scan the archives I’ve been charged with preserving, I’ll upload here and provide any anecdotal color that may be available.
