Ella Ritchey is my 2nd great aunt. Her sister Mary Louisa Ritchey is my great-grandmother.
I have 3 newspaper clippings take from the Ottawa, KS newspapers in I think 1937 that report that two of Ella and Ulysses Grant Ipock's children, Ben and Mary Lee had been adopted out as small babies to different foster parent. Mary Lee to a Mr. and Mrs. Ben Williams. Seems Ben and Mary Lee fell in love and where married, not knowing of course that they where brother and sister. They found out shortly after the wedding and it annulled. The clipping are attached.
