People, Place, and Time

Telling my family's stories



The house at 727 Main Street is still standing. It appears to have been a kind of boarding house or tavern at the time Earl Ritenour lived there. He was likely living there because his parents (Andrew Jackson Ritenour and Minnie Mae Oberheim) were divorced, and he was starting out on his own.
