Cora Black Ritchie
Born January 25, 1921 ~ Cleveland, Ohio
Died December 16, 1996 ~ Clarksburg, West Virginia
This week's Random Relative is in honor of my niece who just started classes at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
While I don't know very much about Cora, I do know that she graduated, cum laude, from Miami in 1942.
Cora was the youngest child of Mary BENZIE and Thomas RITCHIE. I also have a married name for her of HARBERT, that I found based on a social security death record. Unfortunately she did not stay in touch with the rest of the family, or at least not with my part of the family, so I have not yet discovered if she had children or really any other information about her.
I do have the program from her graduation, on June 1, 1942.
I wish I knew more about her ~
