    • From Tritt Family Research, Inc: 

      The focus of Volume IV of Tritt Family History will be the family of Joseph Tritt (1786- 1873) and his wife, Catherine Rho(a)des (1789- 1869). Joseph was a son of Johann Peter Tritt (1755- 1839) and his wife, Elizabeth Lefever, and grandson of Hans Peter Tritt, Jr., one of the two brothers who, in 1739, were the first Tritts to immigrate to America. Joseph and Catherine came to the Stark/Summit County, Ohio area about 1814/15. They were the parents of Elizabeth Tritt Kepler (1811-1886), George (1813- 1871), Juliann Tritt Buchtel (1815-1902), Samuel (1817- 1891), Joseph (1819-1886), Catherine Ann Tritt Henney (1819-aft. 1880), Mary Tritt Boettler (1821-1881), Sarah Tritt Workinger (1823- 1843), Rachel Tritt Workinger (1827-1887), Peter(1829-1910) and Jacob (1831- 1832).
