James Ritchey was born in Erie County, Penn., June 6, 1804. When nine years old, he was brought by his parents to Butler County, Ohio, where he was reared and educated. He afterward studied medicine, and attended the Ohio Medical College at Cincinnati. In 1829, he located at Franklin, Johnson County, Ind., where he remained until 1865, when he came to this county and purchased 400 acres. November 2, 1829, he married Miss Sarah, daughter of William Vanhise, who died in 1881, leaving one son - Leander. His second marriage was to Miss Louisa A. Huntington, who died in 1849, leaving four children - Emily, Angeline, Louisa and Clara. His third marriage was to Mrs. Catherine Williams, at Franklin, with the following issue: Omar C., Kate, Ella, Anna and Irene. The father of our subject, John Ritchey, was a native of Pensylvania, where he practiced medicine, and married Mary Cooney. Their children were James, Jane, Samuel W., Powers, John, Lucinda, Clarinda, Lawrence P., Louisa, Andrew J. and Sarah. James Ritchey was elected to the Legislature from Johnson County in 1840, by the Democrats; was two years in the House and three in the Senate, and was chairman of educational affairs; was the first to make a report favorable to the Insane Hospital at Indianapolis; was a delegate to the National Conventions that nominated Polk, Lincoln and Fremont; was a Cass elector, for whom he stumped the State, and was a member of the Constitutional Convention in 1851. He is now a Liberal Republican, refined in manner and affable in intercourse.
