They lived in Lagro, Wabash County, Indiana. After his death, she remarried, this time to John Schooley Pike (1813-1900), who worked as a farmer and tile maker. The Pikes had 2 sons, Albert (1851-1891) and Irwin Wilber (1853-1914). Lucretia Wright Ridgeway Pike died on September 24, 1888 and was buried in Center Grove Cemetery in Lincolnville, Wabash County.
