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

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.
