Searching for parents of Peter C. Rike, born 22 Jul 1802, Frederick, MD; married Elizabeth John on 6 Feb 1836 in Montgomery Co., OH, died 31 Mar 1885 in Senectus, Shelby Co., OH. The only information that I have on his parents comes from census info...indicates father's birth place PA and mother's birth place MD.
I believe that his father spelled their name REICH, and have searched all PA census records. Can't find any RIKE, but plenty of REICH... just don't know which could be him and not sure how to find out short of traveling to PA.
Does anyone have any suggestions or information. You may e-mail me directly at DWord82647@aol.com
