My father claimed that his family was related to the Ritters of Murvaul. My dad, Allan Turner, was born in 1917 in Gary, one of a set of triplets. His dad's name was Joe (Joseph) and his mother was Sarah Jane (Jenny) Cleveland Turner. The family moved from the Gary area to Overton, Rusk Co. about 1920.
Also, after reviewing the Ritter lineage and researching the area, I am beginning to think that this may be a case of neighbors being mistaken for relatives. Does anyone have any information that can either help me find a connection or disprove it once and for all.
