I am attempting to find out who Alexander Ritchie's parents were. He was born in Scotland in 1820 and died in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on May 17, 1862. He was married to Janet Graham Ritchie. He had 3 children. Later Janet married Jacob Blasdell.

Will be a tough search - a place would help, or perhaps siblings. Have you tried all possible combinations for his wife & offspring in the 1881 Canadian Census.........

I have tracked down his children. They were so young at the time of his death and they took their stepfather's name of Blasdell. Thank you for the information from the IGI. That was going to be my next step.

Janet,

I did not see much on Janet Ritchie in Ancaster, or Janet Graham, but some of the following looks promising at the Lynden United Church, very near Ancaster.

The Hamilton / Ancaster thing got me interested, I grew up in the area.

I shall leave it be now.

Take care,

Janet,

I visited the St. Johns Anglican church yard for another reason and while there the grounds keeper directed me to the only Alexander Ritchie marker in the cemetary that he was aware of. This marker is the oldest read-able stone in the yard and apparently was moved there from another location in Ancaster in the 1800's.

Bill, the Churchyard Co-Ordinator, after checking his records advises that only two other Ritchie's are there, both from the 1900's. He had no Janet Ritchie or Blasdell listing.

I attach photos. I thought perhaps they might be of interest or possibly relatives to your Alexander.

The inscription reads:

SACRED
to the memory
of
ALEXANDER RITCHIE
and
MARY LUCIA
his wife
who both departed this life at Ancaster
on the 11th of APRIL, A.D. 1823

*********
As you can see Bill has been taking excellent care of the yard since the early 1970's as a volunteer after he retired.

Regards,

Larry
