Looking to see if there is any information on a family with the last name of "Rittenhouse" living in Fayette County in and around 1850.

I have documented a marriage between a Ellen "Reddenhouse" - which I believe should be "Rittenhouse" to a Thomas Smith in Fayette County on October 18, 1849.She has a birth year of about 1827.
Ellen may have had a brother by the name of John Rittenhouse who was born about 1820.
Ellen and Thomas Smith were living in Union County by 1850.
I'm trying to find out what happened to Ellen.She had one girl named Mary Alice - either Ellen died or there was a divorce.I believe she died.
Anybody know any info about a Rittenhouse family in the area?
