Notes
a. Note:   lizabeth Walden Ritter 1842-1929 and he was the second youngest of ten children whose births ranged from 1860-1883. General Mitchell also had several step-siblings by his father's first unknown wife. His father Samuel Ritter Sr. is buried in the Smyrna UM Church Cemetery 4 miles northwest of Robbins NC. His mother Elizabeth Walden Ritter 1842-1929 is buried in the New Zion Cemetery less than 2 miles south of Smyrna. She was the daughter of Anderson Walden Sr. and Julia Ritter est born 1822. Mitchell's first wife Mary Jane Caviness died after their third child. His second wife Dora Person 1880-1976 bore him 9 more children. All total Mitchell Ritter fathered 12 children. Relatives and friends alike affectionately referred to his as "Uncle Mitchell". His memory spanned nearly an entire century something few of us will ever know. He recalled Robbins in her early days when George Horner owned the only store in town. He remembered the old well in the center of main street and how good her water tasted on a hot August day. At one time he ran a little store himself in the Haw Branch community which was about 12 miles northeast along the railroad line that also passed through Robbins-Elise or Hemp as she was known back then. Nothing remains of Haw Branch now except the name. That is where he met his second wife Dora Person. She was a schoolteacher in the Haw Branch community. In 1980 the Robbins community honored General Mitchell Ritter with a celebration party commemorating his 100 th birthday. He was presented with a plaque by then Robbins's mayor Tracy Brown. It is safe to say that everyone wished him well on his second 100 years but gate intervened . On the 11 th of June of the following year God called General Mitchell Ritter home. At the age of 101 he was suddenly gone. The Robbins community has never hope to deprive of the glories of Heaven. From all your friends and neighbors around Robbins "God bless you for we are blessed that our paths have crossed along this timeless journey of life".
