Born in the house called Försters am Lotzenberg in Wundethausen. He was probably on the ship Johann Lange out of Bremen that landed in New York on September 23, 1857. He was already 35 when he married the widow Caroline (Knebel) Henze. They apparently lived in Monroe County, Prairie du Long township until at least 1880 (when they are recorded in the Census under the name "Ritt"). But by the late 1880s they are mentioned in the records of what is now St. John's United Church of Christ in Smithton, IL. Known as John.

In 1870, he owned real estate worth $4,500--a substantial sum. That Census lists a daughter "Mina" who was 5 years old; this corresponds to Katherine who was born in 1865. The same Census lists a 2-year old "Catherine", who should be Carolina according to family records. Living them was a 36-year old Henry "Knoebel" (Knebel), most likely Ludwig Heinrich Knebel (*Nov 4, 1834 in Wunderthausen in Schwarze house).
