      William Rittenhouse and Rebecca Bray
      "My records from an old Bible give the marriage date of William
      Rittenhouse, b. 1755, and Rebecca Bray, b. 1759, as May 19, 1777. Both
      were from New Jersey and later settled in Fayette Co.,PA. I understand
      that other researchers claim William had two previous wives, and that
      some of his 12 or 13 children were from those unions.
      Does anyone have in additional info on this marriage?"
