Anyone have a Mary Sophia Safrit Troutman (born 1860 in NC, died 1935 in NC)? Her death certificate has her father as Joseph Safrit and mother "unknown". Several people on ancestry have her father as Tobias Monroe Safrit who was killed in the Civil War 1864. I wondered if Joseph was a brother, or somehow related to Tobias and maybe Joseph married Tobias' widow. Also, several records show Mary as the mother of Herbert Luther Ritchie, some naming my GGrandfather Luther Ritchie as the father. My mother had told me that she had never heard of a Herbert Luther Ritchie. He died in California, dc shows mother's maiden name as Safrit, no father listed.
