William B (Billy) Ritchie



From Thomas Ritchie's Memoirs
"One farm was called "the Rock" through the position of the homestead being built on rock. James had a family of four sons and two daughters who were all men and women before I was born. The one that I knew and loved was called Billy Ritchie. The whole family lived at "the Rock" farm in my time and none married in my time up to 1863. I have often been with my father when the old man came to see his nephew (my Father) I was only a little fellow and was very sorry when he died."
