Editha A. Ritter1

Female
b. circa 1885


Family Marcus Mullen b. 7 March 1881, d. before 12 November 1955

Note*   The 1900 census finds an Editha A. Ritter in Jefferson Co., KY the same age and was born in Indian Territory. She and her brother Howell Ritter is living with her uncle and aunt, Alexander G. and Editha A. Buch or Brech. Her father was born in Kentucky and her mother in Indian Territory.

According to Ancestry.com. Editha is the daughter of William Dickerson Ritter (b. 1942, KY d. Jun 1894) and Nana Elizabeth Wilf (b. 1861 Indian Territory, OK d. 1891). William's parents were Burwell Clark Ritter (1810-1880) and Edith Arundal Maxey (1814-1849). Their daughter, named after her mother, married Alexander G. Brech and is the uncle and aunt that Editha and her brother Howell are living with in 1900.

After Editha split from Marcus Mullen, she married Stanton Cooper Moss (b. KS). They lived in Washington Co., OK in 1910, Montgomery, KS in 1920, and Fort Worth, TX in 1930. Census records are mixed on her ethnicity. Some say she is Indian and others white. She and her brothers are found in the US Native American Enrollment Cards for the Five Civilized Tribes at Ancestry.com. The Index and Final Rolls of Citizens and Freedman lists Editha Ritter, Female, 17; Howell W. Ritter, Male, 16, Ada E. Ritter, Female, 14 and Willie C. W. Ritter, Female, 12, all 1/4 blooded Cherokee. This would mean that Nora Elizabeth Wolf was 1/2 Cherokee.
