Engaged to James Ritchie 2nd cousin when he died. Never married

From Thomas Ritchie's Memoirs
The eldest son, James, a fine man. When I knew him, he was engaged to be married to his second cousin, Agnes Ritchie, daughter of Frank Ritchie, Mount Pottinger. My Uncle James Ritchie, a partner in building the Queens Bridge at Belfast, and the great Glendun Viaduct, Chushendall. A week before the wedding, when dancing at the Ball, he burst a blood vessel which caused his death. Agnes, though sought after, never married.
