Notes:  Howard Ritchie was born in March 1910 in Saskatchewan.  He was the oldest of nine children of Walter Ritchie and Sarah Matilda Denniger.  In the 1911 Canada census, he was living with his parents in the Saskatoon District of Saskatchewan.  His father Walter was a farmer in Twp. 33, Range 7, W.3.

In the 1916 Canada census of Saskatchewan, the family farm was identified as being in the Kindersley District, Montrose Municipality.  The children, all born in Saskatchewan were Howard, 6, Allan, 5, Maud, 3, and Edna, 1.  Walter and the children were were listed as Presbyterian; Sarah was identified as Roman Catholic.

In the 1921 Canada census, Montrose Rural Municipality, Howard, 11, had additional siblings.  These included Allen, 9, Maud, 8, Edna, 6, Ethel, 3, and Orville, 1.  Their 4-room house was made of wood, and his father Walter owned the farm.

Howard married Eva Minerva Strome on 28 Mar 1933 in Englefeld, Humbolt, Saskatchewan.  They moved to Lae Vert, Saskatchewan, where Howard farmed on rented land for two years.  Their first daughter was born here.

Moving back to Greenside in 1935, Howard worked as a laborer and then for Eva's father, Astor Strome, as a linesman.  Their second daughter was born here.  In 1940 they are listed in the Canada Voters Lists in Englefeld, Humbolt.  Howard worked as a cobbler, and candled eggs.  They moved to Watson, Saskatchewan, where Howard worked in a lumber yard.  He is listed as an assistant agent in the Canada Voters Lists in 1945 in Watson.

Howard died 1 Jul 1946, presumably in Watson, Saskatchewan.  Eva continued to live in Watson.  Her death date, some time after 1987, is unknown, and their burial place is unknown.
