Have you found the information. I have the 2 Righters(Reiter) coming from Germany in 1694 they were John & Peter, John b.1673, d 1738 owned a grist mill in Mill Creek, I have nothing more to date! Peter b. 1664, d 1744 married (Elizabeth xxxxxx?) owned 80 acres above the Wissahickon Creek/Ridge Pike, was a farmer and had four Sons: Peter, Michael,George & Bartle . I am looking for the correct connect between those two and Lindley Vale Righter b. June 12 1835 d. Feb. 11, 1901 in Spring Mill PA

Do you know of a Sarah Righter who married John Hyndman? I believe he was born in 1770 and died March 1, 1849, and they would have married around 1794? they would be my 4th great-grandparents.

Carol sorry I haven't answered your post sooner. I had to do some checking, I have a few Sarah Righter's but I don't believe they are the one you are looking for. Was she from PA? I will do more research and let you know what I find-sorry I couldn't be more help.
