Glad of your response. Will send book pages
when wanted. Husband and I both born
Topeka 1923. John Ritchie & wife Mary Jane
Shelledy early settlers 1855 & important to
early town history. First solid Ritchie
home just restored by Co. Hist. Soc.
Even so, still many questions. Keep wishing
could see Mary Jane sitting on a stump
ready to answer my questions. Her husband
was off to the war--she was the one seeing
to the building of that house. Betcha.
Her last words, when dying, were "You will
miss me." Hinting at her capability.
