Looking for anyone with information concerning Alva J. Rittenburg, Son of William and Lena (Lana?).
The family resided in NY until post Civil war and moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa (Linn County) and show up there from 1870 onwards.Some of Alva's (Male) siblings were:William H., Marilla, Miles E. Frances, Chancy E., and Fred E.
I have Alva, in 1879 marrying RowenaBunday (actually Rohama Bundy) in 10 March 1879 Nebraska (Douglas Co.) By 1880 they are back in Cedar Rapids living next to his brother William and their parents.
I have no idea what happened to Alva after 1880.I do know his wife, remarried in 1893 to Andrew Jackson Wilson in Hancock Co., IL, where her Bundy siblings resided.
