Today my 75 year old mother, myself and my sister happened upon your homepage and we had to say - good job. We were searching for any info we could get on a Thomas RICHEY (or Ritchie or ...) who emigrated from Ireland in 1812 and landed in New York, eventually working in the Dupont Powder factory and later moving to Ohio. There seems to be a great possibility that we have relatives in common.

Mom and my two sisters are travelling to Ireland in August and we're trying to find out which county Thomas Richey (who could neither read nor write evidently) came from. If you think there is a connection with your family, I could email you more details. Don't want to swamp your email without your permission.

At any rate, you sure did a nice job on your page - great links!

Sincerely, Marie Richey Barth, California
