The 'Rightmire Report'

Chapter V. Robert Rightmire

Section 1. Robert and Sussanna Rightmire

(1) Robert Rightmire (Ritemire) was probably born around 1787. He married Sussanna (last name unknown) and settled in Washington County, Ohio before 1810. The Ohio 1810 Census, Washington County, Ohio shows that a Robert Ritmire and Sussanna lived together in Washington County in 1810 and had four boys and a girl under the age of 10 living with them. The census reported that Robert was between 16 and 26 years old, and the five children were all under age 10. Based on this, it seems likely that Robert was born close to 1787. This all of the information I have on Robert and Sussanna. However, we believe that two of their sons are:

(2) Benjamin Rightmire, born between 1807 and 1808 (see Section 2).
(2) Samuel Rightmire, born in 1810 (see Section 3).
