Birth: 1724

Death: 1791
Hunterdon County

I am not sure of the birth and death dates. Possibly born in 1720. We need to have someone take a picture of the tombstone and report on the actual dates seen.
(Note: I can't see any picture here.)
Peter is reported to have had two wives:
1) Hannah Hall, and 2) Sarah Hall.

His parents were: William Rittenhouse and Catherine (Howell) Rittenhouse.

Children by Hannah:

1) Peter RITTENHOUSE b:
2) Mary RITTENHOUSE b: 1745/1756 in NEW JERSEY
3) William RITTENHOUSE b: 24 MAY 1743 in HUNTERDON COUNTY, NEW JERSEY
4) Elijah RITTENHOUSE b: ABT 1745 in AMWELL TWP, HUNTERDON COUNTY, N.J

Children by Sarah:

1) Catherine RITTENHOUSE b: 11 Jan 1764
2) Sarah RITTENHOUSE b:
3) Elizabeth RITTENHOUSE b:
4) Ann RITTENHOUSE b:
5) Elisha RITTENHOUSE b: 25 AUG 1768 in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. Other records note the birth date as 22 Apr 1774.

Another research writes:

Hunterdon Co., NJ bur. Wolverton Cemetery, Prallsville, Hunterdon County, NJ
m.(1) Hannah HALL, (2) Sarah HALL

(Another researcher writes that all of the children were Hannah's children.)


********
Note: This cemetery has been added twice:

As Wolverton Cemetery and Prallsville Cemetery
26 Risler Road, Stockton, New Jersey

The cemeteries need to be combined.
