    George Ritchardson Sr. household 
    • 1 female age 45 or older which might possibly be Ellen listed in George Ritchardson, Sr. household in 1820. If that is Ellen, it means she would have died between 7 Aug 1820 and 2 Aug 1823 when George apparently died. In his estate file is a claim for 2 caskets so one was probably Ellen's.

    Died Between 1820-1823  prob , Clark, Ohio, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [4
    • No mention of Ellen in the estate papers of George (A-177), but she was still around after Eleanor got married as it is mentioned in one of the Clark Co. history books that Eleanor and her mother, Mrs. Richison, used to walk to Dayton for supplies. George's estate is billed for 2 caskets which suggests that a death in his family had taken place within a reasonable length of time before his own death, and the bill had not yet been paid for the first casket. Ellen most likely died between 1814 when Eleanor married and 1823 when George died.

      Since Ellen is not mentioned in George's estate, we can presume she is deceased before George and one of the above coffins was most probably for her.
