People, Place, and Time

Telling my family's stories



The obituary for Martha Ellen (George) Ritenour that ran in The Savanna Daily Journal, February 13, 1909. The obituary is highly white-washed, avoiding difficult issues (e.g. they were confederates from Virginia, not settlers from Maryland, and she was at least half indian). 

Martha George > Andrew Jackson Ritenour > Earl Ritenour > Elmer Ritenour > etc.
