  1. Hi folks, my name is Marty and I'm a descendant of Isaac Ritchie and his son Peter. Isaac lived in Brock's Gap and I believe he may be buried there. Peter lived briefly in Brock's Gap and moved to Ohio around 1806. My family took the roundabout way through Illinois and Minnesota and I live in Maryland. I'd like to get in touch with some Ritchie cousins. My email is I think I've already had the benefit of a lot of your research via the web, and it would be nice to hear from you. Thanks! Marty
