His father was Moses Rittenhouse Sr.

His mother was Mary Rittenhouse Ringo (c. 1723 - c. 1819). Some have reported that her birth name was Nye, but I have seen no documentation for this. She remarried Albertus Ringo, son of Philip Ringo of Ringo's Tavern, after Moses, Sr.'s death.

His wife was Sarah Wood, daughter of Aaron Wood, according to Rittenhouse researchers.


Mary who married Richard Godown
Elizabeth who married Abraham Williamson
Sarah who married Samuel Major
Edmond who married Hannah Reading

He was a primary heir of his step-father Albertus Ringo and inherited a house near the covered bridge that is still standing and incorporated into a 20th century house.
