Wife of Columbus Richey of Milroy, Rush Co. IN

I am trying to track down any information I can find about the origins of Frances Richey, wife of Columbus Richey of Milroy. Here's what I have so far:

Columbus was the son of Asbury Richey and Rebecca (Buzzard) Richey. He was born in 1856 in Spencer, Owen Co. IN, and was living in Asbury's household in Rush Co. in 1870-80. He married Frances c.1888.

Frances was born c.1860; family legend has it that her maiden name was also Ritchey or Richie -- same pronunciation, different spelling. She was seriously injured in a buggy accident at some point in her life, and was an invalid thereafter. In the 1900 census, Columbus and Frances are living with a "Sarah Richey" who is listed as mother-in-law, born in IN, so Frances's mother was probably named Sarah. Frances's father was supposedly born in Kentucky.

If anyone is interested in Asbury Richey's ancestors or descendants, I have some information.
