Susan is buried in the 100 F Cemetery AKA Old Fellows Cemetery in Tama County, Iowa.
Hiram Cross is also buried in this cemetery.He married their daughter, Sarah Rittenhouse, on 4 Sep 1842 in Vermillion County, Indiana, before they all came to Tama County, Iowa.
I also found another son-in-law buried in a Tama County Cemetery.He was John J. Southard.John married Polly Rittenhouse on 4 Mar 1835 in Vermillion County, Indiana.
This family appears to have lived in Ohio, and then Indiana and finally in Tama County, Iowa, but some of the members may have moved elsewhere.
William is the only Rittenhouse on the Census in Vermillion County in 1830 and 1840.However, in 1840, the Census take mispelled the name.In 1850 the name was mispelled again to "Rettenhouse".
I am interested in hearing from anyone with Rittenhouse people in Tama County, Iowa, or Vermillion County, Indiana.
